Ingredients

  • 6 good eating apples (Cox’s are excellent)
  • 2 oz. (60 g.) butter<

Method

Peel and core the apples and cut them in thick rings. Using a large heavy pan, fry them very slowly in the butter, turning them so that they become soft and transparent but do not colour or burn at all.

Meanwhile beat the eggs, cream, crumbs, spices and 1 oz. of sugar very well together.
