This apple version of the classic crepe is refreshing and delicious – serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

You’ll need:

For the pancakes:

125 g plain flour

1 vanilla pod, split in half

2 large eggs

200 ml whole milk

15g butter, melted plus extra for cooking

For the apple topping:

150 ml orange juice from 3-4 oranges

grated zest of 1 lemon and 1 orange

3 tbsp caster sugar

3 cardamom pods, crushed

30 g butter, melted

2 Pink Lady apples, cored, thickly sliced and then cut in half

What to do:

1. Put the flour and vanilla seeds into a bowl and add the eggs. Gradually whisk in the milk and butter until a smooth batter.

2. Heat a large frying pan and brush with the melted butter for cooking, pour in a ladleful of the mixture, swirl the pan to make a thin large pancake and cook for 1-2 minutes, turning halfway until golden and cooked.

3. Fold into quarters, transfer to a warm plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter to make 4 large or 8 small pancakes in total.

4. For the apple sauce put the orange juice, lemon and orange zest, sugar, cardamom pods into the frying pan and bring to the boil. Then gradually stir in the melted butter, stirring until combined. Add the apples and pancakes and gently warm through, tossing in the sauce. Serve immediately.
