For the poached fruit, place all the ingredients in a large saucepan over a high heat. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and gently simmer.
Meanwhile, for the crêpes, beat the eggs in a bowl then add the butter, cider, 250ml water and a pinch of salt. Slowly sift in the flour, beating as you go, until you have a smooth batter. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
When the fruit is tender but still holds its shape, bring the batter out of the fridge. Melt a knob of butter in a crêpe pan over a medium-high heat. Add a ladleful of batter and tip the pan to spread it around. Once bubbles form on the surface, loosen the edges of the crêpe with a palette knife or spatula before gently turning it over. Cook for another minute till golden and cooked on both sides, then transfer to a warm oven while you continue making the others. Serve with poached fruit and cream.
