BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES WITH BLUEBERRY COMPOTE

  • 225g buckwheat flour
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 225ml almond milk or full fat cows’ milk
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2-3 tbsp rapeseed oil

FOR THE COMPOTE

  • 400g blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

TO SERVE

  • Natural yoghurt

Method

  • Sift buckwheat flour, cinnamon and baking powder into a bowl. Make a well in and add in the eggs. Beat the eggs, gradually bringing in some of the flour to form a paste. Mix in half the milk and whisk in the rest of the flour. Then pour in the remainder of the milk, and combine into the mixture along with the maple syrup and melted butter. Leave batter to rest and move on to the compote.
  • Place the blueberries in a small pan over a low heat, add the vanilla bean paste and maple syrup. Cook for approximately 5-10 minutes, until berries burst. Let cool.
  • Fry pancakes with rapeseed oil–flipping after 2-3 minutes–until golden brown.
  • Serve with a generous spoonful of compote and a swirl of yoghurt.
