Serves 4



2 large eggs (beaten)
150g/5oz cream flour
1tbsp Siúcra Caster Sugar
250ml milk, or milk and water mixed
1tbsp melted butter (optional)


4 apples
100ml water
50ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
200g Siúcra Granulated Sugar
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1g ground cardamom

Lemon Cream

150ml whipping cream
Juice and zest of 1/4 lemon
3g Siúcra Icing Sugar
Butter or margarine for frying
50 g chopped walnuts for decoration


1. To make the lemon cream, whip the cream until you form soft peaks and then add the lemon juice, zest and Siúcra Icing Sugar. Refrigerate until serving.

2. To make the compote, peel, core and chop the apples. Mix the chopped apple, water, lemon juice and Siúcra Granulated Sugar in a pan and simmer until the apple turns soft. Add the vanilla extract and cardamom to the mix and stir. Add the flour, salt and vanilla extract and stir well.

3. For the pancake batter, gently beat the eggs with the milk. In a bowl, mix the flour and wet ingredients together adding the liquid a little at a time. Whip until you have a smooth batter and leave if possible for 30 minutes in the fridge. Lightly grease a flat plan and pour on 2-3 tablespoons of the batter. Quickly, lift from the heat and tip in several directions to spread the batter evenly over the bottom of the pan. Cook until the top is set and lightly brown underneath and flip the pancake to the other side.

Serve the pancakes with a side of up compote and lemon cream and decorate with some walnuts on top.
