    Makes: 12-16 small pancakes Serves: 4


    • 25g butter, plus extra for frying
    • 300g Bramley apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
    • Good pinch of ground cinnamon
    • 200g self-raising flour
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 50g caster sugar
    • 2 medium eggs, beaten
    • 150ml semi-skimmed milk
    • 3-4 tbsp Merchant Gourmet Banoffee Toffee Sauce
    • Waitrose Clotted Cream Ice Cream, to serve


    1. Heat the butter in a small pan, add the apples and cinnamon and cook gently for 5 minutes until the apples are softened, but not broken down. Leave to cool completely.
    2. Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs, then gradually beat in the milk to make a smooth batter. Gently stir in the apples.
    3. Melt a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan until foaming. Add generous tablespoons of the batter, allowing room for them to spread slightly. Cook over a moderate heat for about 3 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes. Flip them over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, until they are risen and golden brown. Keep the pancakes covered on a plate, separated with sheets of greaseproof paper, in a low oven while cooking the rest. Add a little butter for each batch.
    4. Gently warm the toffee sauce in a small pan, or in the microwave for 30 seconds. Serve 2-3 pancakes per person drizzled with the toffee sauce and scoops of Waitrose Clotted Cream Ice Cream.
