Thick Pancakes with Spiced Apple
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 20 mins

  • Apple topping ingredients:
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 Bramley apples, peeled and sliced
  • 3 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 3 tbsp sultanas
  • Pancake ingredients:
  • 225 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 British Lion eggs, lightly beaten
  • 300ml milk

  1. For the pancakes: place all the ingredients apart from the oil into a bowl and whisk using an electric hand whisk until smooth.

  4. To serve, stack the pancakes and top with a spoonful of apple and a dollop of crème fraȋche.
