Apple and Walnut Pancakes with Caramel Sauce

4 pancakes

Apple and walnut filling

1 large Bramley apple
4 Granny smith apples
60g toasted flaked walnuts
½ zest and juice unwaxed lemon
20g unsalted butter
40g castor sugar

Caramel Sauce

100g castor sugar
200ml double cream

To serve
+ 200g thick clotted cream

Method - apple & walnut filling

To make the apple filling, take the Bramley apple and using a small knife score the apple 2 cm deep around the side horizontally. 

Place the apple on a tray and bake for 40- 50 minute in an oven pre heated to 180ºC.  Remove the apple from the oven and allow to cool. 

Place a sieve over a bowel and using the back of a wooden spoon push the apple through the sieve until you have a fine puree. 

Peel and dice the Granny smiths into 1cm cubes.  Melt the butter over a medium heat and stir in the apple cubes, cook for 5 minutes stirring occasionally. 

Add the castor sugar, lemon zest and juice and cook for a further 1 minute. 

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Bramley apple puree and toasted walnuts.

Method - caramel sauce

For the caramel sauce, place a heavy based pan onto a medium heat and pour in a quarter of the sugar.  When the sugar turns an amber color stir in a quarter more of the sugar until that turns amber, repeat the process until all the sugar is incorporated. 

Carefully stir in the double cream,  boil for 30 seconds and remove from the heat to cool.

Method - create Apple & Walnut pancakes with caramel sauce

Lay one of the crepes onto a flat surface, spoon in a quarter of the apple filling in the middle of the crepe from one side to the other.

Roll the crepe making a cigar shape and place onto a flat plate, repeat until all the filling is used. Warm in a microwave for about one minute or until hot. 

Slice the crepes tubes through the center diagonally and arrange onto clean plates.  Serve with dollop of clotted cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce
