  • For the pancake money bag

  • 125g all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 120ml milk
  • Salt, to taste
  • 30g butter, melted
  • 30g blanched and pressed spinach, roughly puréed
  • For the stuffing

  • 100g diced chicken breast
  • 10ml olive oil
  • 5g chopped garlic
  • 25g shallots brunoise
  • 100g Dutch button mushrooms, diced small
  • 50g grated Emmental cheese
  • 50ml fresh cooking cream
  • 5g parsley, chopped


  1. To make pancakes, whisk together flour and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Gradually stir in the milk and 120ml water. Then fold in the spinach purée and mix well. Add salt and butter; beat until smooth. Adjust batter consistency. Heat a greased griddle and prepare thin pancakes.
  2. For chicken and mushroom stuffing, sauté chicken with olive oil, garlic and shallots. Add mushrooms, cook until water evaporates. Add cream and cheese. Season and add parsley. Set aside.
  3. Lay pancakes on a flat surface and stuff with chicken-mushroom stuffing; bring the edges together, tie the money bag with the cooking vine and serve.
