Method

  1. First make the Apple, pear & cherry compote (see 'Goes well with'). You'll need half the compote for this recipe.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, sugar and ½ tsp salt. In a jug, whisk the egg, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture gradually, whisking as you go to make a smooth batter. Ideally, let the mixture stand for 1 hr (or even overnight, covered in the fridge), although you can cook with it straight away.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Melt a knob of butter, then drop in tbsps of the mixture to make pancakes about 10cm across. Cook for 2-3 mins until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip over and cook for 1 min more. Keep each batch warm while you use up the rest of the batter. Stack up the pancakes and serve with hot or cold compote, maple syrup and yogurt.

Though I have yet to make the pancakes with the compote, the batter alone is delicious.

I agree with all the other comments, this is the best pancake mix recipe. I cooked mine on a tefal 20cm non stick pan at roughly 1/2cm thick and they were the best pancakes I ever made. I only got 3 portion sizes out of them (as I was using a bigger pan) but the size was more than enough for 1 person to have at each sitting. Definitely a firm family favourite.

Even without the compote, the recipe for the pancake batter is ace! Makes perfect pancakes, this will definitely be the only pancake recipe I follow henceforth. Goes well with fresh cream, fruits, honey or even ice cream!

I didn't make the compote to go with them, but the recipe for the actual pancakes is amazing! I've made them many times and everyone is always satisfied. Wonderful taste and will continue to make them
