METHOD

          1. Place the water and sugar into a saucepan and bring to a slow simmer. Add the sliced oranges and let them simmer until they begin to soften.

          3. Whisk the egg and gradually add the flour to combine into a thick batter. Add the milk, vanilla extract,
          4. Heat a frying pan and add ½ tsp of butter to cover the pan. Add a ladle of batter and swirl until it has covered the surface of the pan. Cook for 1 minute and then flip, cooking for another minute. Repeat with the remaining batter.
          5. Fold each pancake in four and then set to one side.
          6. Place the sugar into a heavy bottom pan and let it melt on a low heat until you get a light caramel.
          7. Remove the pan from the heat and add the blood orange juice, zest, Cointreau and butter.
          8. Return the pan to the heat and add the candied orange slices until the sauce begins to thicken.
          9. Finally, add the folded crepes into the pan and continue to cook until warmed through.
          10. Place your crepes onto a plate, add a tablespoon of the sauce and garnish with the orange slices, banana, raspberries, flaked almonds and a dusting of icing sugar.
            Serve and enjoy!
