Tuna and Sweetcorn Pancakes

Serves: 4


For the Pancakes:

100g All-Purpose Flour

Pinch of Salt

1 Egg

275ml Milk

15g Butter, melted

Oil for cooking

For the Filling:

75g Butter

1 small Onion, finely chopped

2 Celery stalk, finely chopped

50g All-Purpose Flour

425ml Milk

400g tin Tuna, drained

200g tin Sweetcorn, drained

150ml Sour Cream

2 tablespoons Parsley, chopped

1 teaspoon Cornflour


  1. Make the pancakes by sifting the flour and salt and then adding the egg, milk and butter. Mix well and let stand for ½ hour. Heat a little of the oil in a non-stick frying pan and use just enough pancake mix to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook until lightly browned and flip over cooking that side until lightly browned. Keep doing this until all the batter has been used.
  2. For the filling: Melt 50g of the butter in a saucepan over a low heat and add the onion and celery. Cook until soft, but not brown.
  3. Add the flour and continue to cook, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat up to medium and gradually pour in the milk, stirring constantly, until the sauce starts boiling and thickens.
  5. Simmer for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the tuna, sweetcorn and 2 tablespoons sour cream. Mix well.
  7. Stir in 1 tablespoon of parsley.
  8. Melt the remaining butter.
  9. Working with one pancake at a time, divide the filling between the pancakes and roll them up.
  10. As each one is rolled up, place it, seam side down in an ovenproof dish and brush with the melted butter.
  11. Cover the pancakes with a piece of foil and keep warm in the oven.
  12. To make the sauce: Mix the cornflour with the remaining milk and sour cream and pour into a saucepan.
  13. Place over low heat and stir until the sauce thickens.
  14. Stir in the remaining parsley.
  15. Lightly drizzle the sauce over the pancakes to serve.

About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx
