Pancakes don't need much introduction, as they have been a staple of many cuisines for generations. Sometimes, experimenting with this popular dish and serving it in a slightly different form is worth it.

Pancake roll is a great idea for a dessert that can substitute many cakes. Inside the pink pancakes is a well-known and loved combination - strawberries and whipped cream. This dessert is the quintessence of summer in a simple and delicious version.

This dessert is full of sweet summer indulgence. In my home, it replaces cake and plays the main role in the family afternoon tea. The pink colour of the pancakes is due to food colouring. You can skip this step if you don't have it at home. However, it's sometimes worth colouring your day a little.

When strawberry season ends, I add raspberries or currants instead. This combination is worth the sweet sin. It's simple and delicious—a great alternative to classic pancakes.


Pancake batter:

  • 2 eggs,
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar,
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar,
  • 1 cup of plain flour,
  • 350 millilitres of milk,
  • pink food colouring.


  • 1 packet of whipped cream powder,
  • 200 millilitres of cold milk,
