The weather is still pretty chilly so serve your pancakes with spiced, caramelised apples, caramel sauce and cinnamon cream to warm you up
Pour 125ml double cream into a bowl with a teaspoon of cinnaamon and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence. Whisk until thick and fluffy and store in the fridge until ready to serve
For the Caramel Sauce:
Melt 113g butter in a pan then add 220g of light brown sugar and 85ml double cream and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and allow to bubble for 3 minutes - no longer. Remove from the heat and allow to cool a little before serving
For the Spiced Apples:
In a saucepan, melt 50g butter over a low heat then add 100g brown sugar and stir until it's dissolved
Put 2 peeled and finely chopped apples into the pan, add a teaspoon of cinnamon & a 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger and leave to cook, stirring occasionally, until the pieces are soft. Drain off the liquid and serve warm.
A refreshing accompaniment for your pancakes with fresh fruit, raspberry sauce and coconut cream
Put 2 cups of raspberries in a blender with 64g of icing sugar and a few squeezes of lemon juice then blend until smooth. Store in the fridge until serving time
For the Coconut Cream:
Leave a can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Before serving time, open the can and spoon the cream on top into a bowl, stopping when you get to the water. (Alternatively, in some supermarkets you can buy cartons of just the cream). Whisk the cream with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence until fluffy and serve immediately
