For the orange caramel

3 Tbsp Golden Caster Sugar

3 Tbsp Lyle's Golden Syrup

300ml Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice

Juice & Zest from 1 Blood Orange

Pinch of Flaked Salt

70g Salted Butter, cubed


For the crepes

140g Plain Flour

200g Whole Milk

1 Tsp Vanilla Bean Paste

2 Large Eggs

Pinch of Salt

30g Salted Butter, melted

To garnish

Extra Lyle's Golden Syrup

Blood Orange Segments

(optional) Pinch of Lemon Thyme



  1. Start by preparing the crepes. Add the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Slowly pour in the milk and crack in the eggs, whisking to combine ensuring there isn't any lumps and the batter is smooth. Pour in the melted butter and whisk again.
  2. Place the batter into the fridge to rest for 1 hour.
  3. Heat a frying pan to medium heat. Add a small knob of butter to the pan. Using a ladle pour 2/3 Tbsp of batter into the pan until evenly coated. Cook for 40-45 seconds aside until golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side for 25-30 seconds. Repeat until you have run out of the batter 
  4. To make the caramel add the sugar, both orange juice & orange zest & Lyle's Golden Syrup into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then add the butter, taking care as this may spit. Stirring constantly.  Reduce by half. 
  5. Fold your pancakes into 4, then drizzle over your orange caramel and another drizzle of Lyle's Golden Syrup. Top with a little fresh lemon thyme. Serve!
