Normandy apple crêpes

Ingredients

  • 75g/3oz plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large British Lion eggs
  • 200ml/7floz milk
  • a little oil for frying
  • For the filling:
  • 50g/2oz caster sugar
  • 100ml/4floz dry cider
  • a knob of butter
  • 350g/12oz green eating apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • icing sugar to dust and crème frâiche to serve

Method

  1. Place the flour, salt and eggs in a large bowl, add half the milk and whisk well until the mixture is lump free. Add the remaining milk and whisk again until smooth. Pour into a jug and leave to stand whilst you make the filling
  2. Make the filling: place the caster sugar without any water, in a heavy based pan. Cook over a gently heat, shaking the pan occasionally (don’t stir the sugar) until the sugar melts and turns golden brown. Remove from the heat and carefully add the cider - be careful as it will splatter and spit. Stir well, then return to the heat, add the butter and continue to cook and stir until a smooth caramel sauce forms. Add the apples, to the sauce, cover and cook for 5 mins, until the apple is tender. Keep warm
  3. Heat a 20cm/8in diameter non-stick frying pan until hot, drizzle a little oil over the centre and wipe around the pan with a piece of kitchen paper. Pour a little of the batter into the pan and immediately tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly over the base of the pan. Cook for 2 mins or until the top is set and the base golden. Flip over using a spatula and cook for a further 1-2mins or until the base is golden. Make another 7 pancakes in the same way and keep warm
  4. Spoon a little apple into each pancake, fold or roll up, then dust with icing sugar. Serve hot with crème frâiche or ice cream

Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
