Serves 4


1 x 395g can apple pie filling
1 x 425g can custard
250g plain flour
4 medium eggs
650ml semi-skimmed milk
5 Devonshire toffees cut into chunks
75g caster sugar
2 tbsp Calvados
sunflower oil, to fry
Pinch of salt


1. To make the pancakes, sift the flour into a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and a little of the milk. Whisk together until well mixed.

Whisking continuously, add the remaining milk, the sugar and Calvados.
Heat a 25cm non-stick frying pan and lightly oil the base. Add enough batter into the hot pan to cover the base.

3. Heat for 45-55 seconds on each side, until golden. Keep the pancakes warm.
Pour the apple filling into a pan, add the toffee. Heat gently until just simmering but not boiling.

4. Pour the custard into a small pan and heat gently for 2-3 minutes until just simmering.

5. Spoon the custard onto half the pancake and top with the apple filling. Fold the pancake over and serve.
