Pancakes with Cherry Compote

As a part of the #FoodieFebruary campaign on my Instagram I decided to make Pancakes with warm Cherry Compote from scratch for breakfast. It was my first attempt at making a compote and it turned out really well.

I found fresh cherries in the supermarket and I used those for the recipe. You can use frozen too.

For the pancakes-


1 cup all purpose flour

1 egg

2 teaspoons baking soda

A pinch of salt

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

1 cup Buttermilk/ Milk

Butter, for frying


Beat the egg until fluffy and then stir in all the other ingredients. The consistency must be a little loose but not too runny.

Heat butter. Pour the batter into the pan and cook on both sides until golden brown.

For the compote-


1 cup pitted fresh/frozen cherries

2 tablespoons sugar


Heat the cherries and sugar in a pan until the juices and sugar have combined well. Once the cherries start softening turn the flame off.

Serve the compote with pancakes and whipped cream. You are going to love every bit of it. Bon Appetit!

Forever and ever,

Samreen Ahmed
