Just what the name implies!
Sift flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and sugar into large mixing bowl.
Beat the eggs, add vanilla and buttermilk together in a jug/bowl.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the egg/milk combination.
Whisk until combined. Refrigerate for up to an hour, or cook straight away.
Grease a nonstick pan on medium heat.
Add 1/2 cup of batter and cook, on med heat, until bubbles form and 'pop'.
Flip and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
Yields about 10-12 pancakes.
Berry Compote -
Place sugar and water in saucepan & bring to a simmer. Cook for around 5 minutes.
Add fresh (or defrosted) berries (and stonefuit).
Simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Add maple syrup.
Remove from heat and allow to cool before serving - warm compote rather than blisteringly hot-take the skin off the roof of your mouth heat!
To serve -
Stack one pancake, drizzle a little of the syrup from the compote and a few berries, stack another pancake on top, drizzle with compote syrup and a generous spoonful or two of the berries/stonefruit.
Dust with icing sugar & spoon extra syrup around the edge of pancakes/plate.
* regarding stonefruit - peaches, nectarines work really well - cut into 1/8 or 1/16 and add to the berries while poaching in the sugar syrup.
