It’s Shrove Tuesday this week, so I thought it was only right to come up with a tasty pancake filling idea for you to try.
I’ve kept it super simple so there’s limited faffing about – cooking pancakes is a labour of love enough without lots of fancy fillings to prepare. I’ve used dark brown soft sugar with chopped apple and cinnamon and cooked it gently in a pan until the fruit is soft and swimming in a dark and syrupy toffee sauce.
All that’s left to do is spoon it over your pancakes and top with a healthy dollop of thick Greek yoghurt. Lush.
Toffee Apple Pancake Filling
2 apples (I used Braeburn)
1 heaped tbsp dark brown soft sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1. Peel, core and slice the apple and place it in a small saucepan with the sugar and cinnamon and a splash of cold water and cover with a lid.
2. Heat gently, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is soft in a lovely sticky toffee sauce. Remove from heat and pop into a bowl ready to be spooned over delicious warm pancakes.
American-style or crepe-style?
I’m a fan of both. The in-laws flew in from America at the weekend, and with them they bought my favourite Aunt Jemima’s Pancake and Waffle mix. They make super fluffy American-style pancakes which we all adore. You can of course avoid the packet and make them absolutely from scratch by following this recipe.
Or if you need a standard crepe-style pancake recipe, hop over to my pancake page from last year.
I’ve had a little look around some of my favourite blogs for further pancake bliss to get you in the mood…
