Here's how easy it is...
  1. Make a pastry cream: place the condensed milk and water in a saucepan, mix well and bring to the boil, stirring continuously. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy, then sieve in the cornflour and whisk until you have a smooth cream.
  3. Pour the hot milk slowly, onto the egg yolks, whisking continuously. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook, stirring well, over a low heat for 5–8 minutes until thickened. Remove from the heat.
  4. Gently heat the coconut in a dry frying pan, stirring occasionally, until toasted to a golden brown; only takes a minute.
  5. Stir the orange zest and two thirds of the coconut into the pastry cream. Pour the thickened cream into a clean bowl and place a layer of cling film over the surface to prevent a skin forming. Leave to cool and chill the mixture well.
  6. Place a few strawberries onto each pancake and spoon over some coconut pastry cream. Fold up the base of the pancake by a quarter, then roll up to form a cone. Repeat with all the pancakes and filling, reserving some strawberries. Serve either cold or warm with some more strawberries and the remaining toasted coconut.
