  8. Heat a small non-stick pan on low heat (you may need to use oil if it is not non-stick)
  9. Pour some pancake mix onto the pan and twirl around to cover the bottom evenly (this may take a few tries, & you may add some water if it is too thick)
  10. Allow to cook until the underside is slightly lighter in colour and the topside is no longer wet
  11. Place a spoonful of coconut filling onto the pancake and gently fold over the filling, then fold the sides, then all the way downwards.
