World Apple Day: Yorkshire apples and honey wrapped in a Minster Ale crepe served with Calvados caramel

October 21st, 2016 Posted by Recipes No Comment yet

To celebrate World Apple Day on 21 October 2016, we have created a simple and delicious dessert that’s sure to be the Apple of your Eye.

We have conjured up a creative way to use up your glut of apples and put the UK’s favourite fruit centre stage.

We have used Yorkshire produce including apples from our garden and Minster Ale, produced by York Brewery.

Serves 6


Crepe batter
– 125g plain flour
– 125ml whole milk
– 125ml Minster Ale, York brewery
– 3 medium sized eggs

Calvados Caramel
– 100g sugar
– 100g double cream
– 50g salted butter
– 3tbs of calvados

Honey Roasted Apples
– 6 tart apples
– 1tbs honey
– 20g salt

1 pack of MIKADO biscuits (found at most big supermarkets)


Place the sugar in a saucepan and heat until you get a caramel, then, away from the heat, add the butter.

Once the butter has melted, add the cream and return to the heat. Gently bring the mixture to the boil. Take the pan off the heat and add the calvados.

Slice the apple into small cubes, leaving on the skin and roast them in a pan with butter. Add the honey and leave to caramelise slightly. Put to one side.

Make the batter by mixing the flour with the eggs. Add the milk and then the beer. Whisk the mixture until smooth.

Melt a small amount of butter or oil in a frying pan. Evenly pour in the batter to the hot pan. Leave to cook for 20 seconds on each side or until it starts to brown. Repeat the process to create six crepes.

In the middle of the crepe, put the equivalent of a whole apple and close it with two MIKADO biscuits crossed over, in order to form a purse shape.

Pour the caramel onto a plate and place the purse on top of it.

Serve warm.
