    Recipe Information

    75g Plain Flour

    1 Medium Egg

    200ml Semi-Skimmed Milk

    1 Eating Apple, cored and thinly sliced

    35g Caster Sugar

    Finely grated zest and juice of 1 Lemon

    1 tbsp Vegetable Oil


    Put the flour into a large jug or mixing bowl.

    Add the egg and milk and beat with a whisk to make a smooth batter.

    Heat a pancake pan or non-stick frying pan.

    Add a few drops of vegetable oil to the pan.

    Pour in a quarter of the batter and tilt the pan so that it spreads evenly over the surface.

    Cook over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes until set, then flip over to cook the other side (keep the pancakes in a warm place until all of them are cooked).

    Make 4 pancakes in total, adding 2-3 drops of oil to the pan for each one.

    Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan over a medium-high heat then sauté the apple slices for 3-4 minutes.

    Sprinkle the sugar over them and cook for a couple more minutes until lightly browned.

    Add the lemon zest and juice, stir to coat, then remove from the heat.

    Serve 2 pancakes per person, topped with the caramelised apples.
