Serves: 1
Cooking Time: 20 mins

Ingredients

  • Toffee apple wedges

  • 30ml (2 tbsp) castor sugar
  • 25ml butter
  • 1 large red apple, cored and cut into wedges
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Omelette

  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 35ml castor sugar
  • 2,5ml (½ tsp) vanilla extract
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) dark chocolate, finely grated
  • 10ml (2 tsp) cocoa powder
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) butter
  • 20ml (4 tsp) pistachio nuts, to serve
  • cocoa powder, for dusting
  • whipped cream or mascarpone, to serve

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven grill.

2

For the wedges, melt the sugar and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the apples and cinnamon as the mixture starts to bubble. Cook for 5 minutes, remove from the heat and set aside.

3

For the omelette, combine the egg yolk, 10ml (2 tsp) of the castor sugar, vanilla, chocolate and cocoa powder in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add the remaining castor sugar a little at a time, whisking until the mixture is thick and glossy. Fold the egg white mixture into the chocolate mixture a little at a time.

4

Melt the butter in an ovenproof pan with a diameter of 20cm. Spoon the omelette mixture into the pan and cook for 3 minutes. Place the omelette under the grill for 1 minute until set.

5

Spoon the apples over one half of the omelette and sprinkle over the pistachio nuts. Fold the omelette over to enclose the filling. Dust with a little cocoa powder and serve with fresh cream or mascarpone.
