    Calvados and Apple Pancakes

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes to 30 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes to 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Makes: about 15 x 25cm pancakes Serves: 6


    • 250g plain flour
    • Pinch of salt
    • 4 Waitrose Free Range Medium Eggs
    • 650ml Waitrose Semi-Skimmed Milk
    • 75g caster sugar
    • 2 tbsp Calvados
    • Sunflower oil, to fry
    • 1kg English Cox's apples, peeled, cored and sliced
    • 40g Country Life Butter
    • 6 tbsp Merchant Gourmet Banoffee Toffee
    • 150ml pot Waitrose Calvados and Caramelised Apple Cream


    1. To make the pancakes, sift the flour into a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and a little of the milk. Whisk together, allowing the flour to gradually fall into the liquid from the edges to avoid a lumpy result. Whisking continuously, add the remaining milk, the sugar and Calvados.
    2. Heat a 25cm non-stick frying pan and lightly oil the base. Measure about 75ml batter into a jug or ladle to make each pancake. Pour it into the hot pan and swirl it around to create a lacy edge. Fry over a medium heat for 45-55 seconds on each side, until golden. Keep the pancakes warm.
    3. Fry the apples with the butter for 3-4 minutes until golden and just soft. Do this in 2 batches, or more, if necessary.Put a little of the apple mixture and 1 tsp banoffee toffee on each pancake and fold into quarters or roll up. Serve hot with the cream.

    Cook's tips

    You can make and freeze the pancakes in advance. Make as above and place a sheet of greaseproof paper between each one and freeze. Reheat individual pancakes in the microwave for 15 seconds, or a whole, layered batch for 1½-2 minutes on full power. To keep the pancakes warm, put them on a heatproof plate, cover with a lid or foil and place over a pan of very hot water until required.
