Apple Pancakes - Just scrumptious

Recently at a festival I encountered a pancake stall, well crepes if you want to be pedantic, and they had many flavours from savoury tuna melts with cheese and spinach to the super sweet Nutella and banana (I know most people love that but I hate it!)

Anyway, one of the options was 'Apple Pie Crepe' so I went for it, and it was the business! Best pancake ever, simple enough to rustle up for breakfast and also easy to glam up for a dinner party dessert (I can see myself on Come Dine With Me serving this up...)

I paid careful attention so that I can share the recipe with you. If you are in a mood to be fast, you could use pancake mix and/or apple sauce. If you are feeling more 'Nigella' go for the batter made from scratch and your own stewed apples.

So either mix 2 heaped tablespoons of flour, eggs (2) and just over half a pint of milk with a dash of olive oil to create a batter .... or mix up a batter mix.

Have to hand either home stewed apples (diced cooking apples, a tiny bit of water, boil for 20 minutes or until soft, add sugar to taste)  .... or some apple sauce, the sort they sell in jars to have with pork works fine. (I used a jar this time as our apples aren't ripe yet)

You will also need some oil, some brown sugar and cinnamon.


Add some oil to the frying pan and start cooking the pancake, turn it once and spread apple across one half of the pancake, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Fold the pancake in half, covering the apple. Fry slightly to warm the apple then fold again. serve with marscapone cheese (my favourite!) or icecream, or fresh cream.


Delicious! Why not add some brandy to the apple for a decadent after dinner treat!
