Caramel Apple Crepes

Caramel Apple Crepes

The best way to celebrate Pancake day with these decadent, delicious and totally goodness packed crepes. Using fabulous British apples which are seasonal and abundant, you can’t make enough of this warming filling, we leave it in a jar and snack on it whenever!

Apple Filling


  • 4 Apples
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp Ghee (or butter)
  • Pinch ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp honey

Core and slice the apples into thin half moons. Heat the ghee in a small pan and add the apple pieces with the spices and some honey to taste. Leave to bubble gently for 10 – 15 minutes until the apples are browning and soft with an unctuous caramel looking sauce. Keep bubbling until thickened to coat the back of spoon. Leave until ready for pancake filling.



  • 3/4 Cup Buckwheat Flour
  • 2 tbsp Ground almonds (replace with flour if nut allergies)
  • 1 tbsp milled flaxseed
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Cup Oat or Milk of choice
  • ½ Cup water
  • 4 tbsp melted butter/ghee
  • Pinch cinnamon

Sift the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Crack the egg into a well in the middle and whisk gently together, add the milk slowly and finish with the melted butter to a glossy finish.


Oil a large frying pan and ladle the mixture in, tipping to spread it evenly and thinly throughout. Flip and fill the middle whilst cooking to a golden brown. Roll up and serve piping hot.

Pancakes can be stacked between parchment paper and frozen or refridgerated to be heated up later.

  1. Hi,

    I am just about to make this. When do you add the water to the pancake mix?

  2. And what should the consistency of the batter be? Mine looks quite thick?

    • Lizzie King

      If it sits too long it can thicken. Add a little more milk. Should be back of the spoon coating but not thicker.

  3. Thanks Lizzie. I realised I got my measurements wrong – using cups for flour and then grams for the liquid. I added more milk and water and it was fine. Such a lovely nutty sort of flavoured pancakes. It was delicious. I used apples and pears as needed to use them up. They were delicious and really goes well with the pancakes. My husband had to have ice cream with them!! Thank you. The recipe came at the right time. My husband has benefitted from your recipes lately… Such an easy and satisfying treat x

  4. I just had these again for breakfast. Buckwheat pancakes are such a delicious alternative. Will freeze the rest. Thank you for the recipe.

  5. Hi Lizzie,
    I am a huge fan of your blueberry and buckwheat pancakes so I’m very much looking forward to trying these out on pancake day!! Would I be able to use coconut oil instead of ghee or butter like with the blueberry pancakes? Would it alter the way they turn out?

    Thank you very much.

  6. Hi, I struggle with buckwheat flour as I can’t find the gluten free variety. A lot of companies don’t like to guarantee that their flour is gluten free, due to cross contamination. Any alternatives I could use?
