Buttermilk pancakes with berry/stonefruit compote

Just what the name implies!

  • Pancake batter:

  • 2 cups plain flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp bicarb soda

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 Tblsp caster sugar

  • oil/butter to cook pancakes

  • Berry Compote

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 2 Tblsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 cups berries and seasonal stonefruit* - berries can be fresh or frozen, but if using frozen berries allow them to thaw before cooking the compote

Method

  • 1.

    Pancakes -

  • 2.

    Sift flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and sugar into large mixing bowl.

  • 3.

    Beat the eggs, add vanilla and buttermilk together in a jug/bowl.

  • 4.

    Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the egg/milk combination.

  • 5.

    Whisk until combined. Refrigerate for up to an hour, or cook straight away.

  • 6.

    Grease a nonstick pan on medium heat.

  • 7.

    Add 1/2 cup of batter and cook, on med heat, until bubbles form and 'pop'.

  • 8.

    Flip and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

  • 9.

    Yields about 10-12 pancakes.

  • 10.

    Berry Compote -

  • 11.

    Place sugar and water in saucepan & bring to a simmer. Cook for around 5 minutes.

  • 12.

    Add fresh (or defrosted) berries (and stonefuit).

  • 13.

    Simmer for 2-3 minutes.

  • 14.

    Add maple syrup.

  • 15.

    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!

  • 16.

    To serve -

  • 17.

    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.

  • 18.

    Dust with icing sugar & spoon extra syrup around the edge of pancakes/plate.

Notes

* 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.
