2. Blanch the apricots in boiling water, then peel, halve and stone them. Boil the 100 g (4 oz) sugar in the lemon juice and water for about 3 minutes. Thinly slice the apricot halves and braise them gently in the hot syrup for 10 minutes. Stir in the liqueur and leave to cool.

4.Using a small ladle, pour a little batter into the frying pan, tip the pan to spread the batter and cook to make a very thin pancake, golden brown on each side. Keep the cooked pancakes hot between two plates in the oven.

5. Drain the apricots. Fold the crepes into small cones and fill with the apricots. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
