Blueberry Pancakes Compote

Updated: Apr 16

Soft fluffy blueberry pancakes and blueberry compote topped with whip cream and a dust of cinnamon can make any breakfast the best start of the day. Creating pancakes airy light and fluffy is not hard at all. Although homemade pancakes are not difficult to make. I do cheat from time to time and use the complete box pancake mix and add few extra spices to brighten the dish. Any time you add vanilla extract a pinch of cinnamon and squeeze of lemon juice to the batter it only enhances the flavor of the pancakes. It taste like homemade pancakes. At the end of the day you want your food to taste delicious whether from scratch and getting a little help from the box.

These blueberry pancakes for breakfast are topped with blueberry compote and whip cream, the flavors will be jumping around and dancing on your palette. The natural sweetness from the blueberries interlocks with the warm cinnamon, sugar and ginger with a hint of lemon zest awakens the flavor in the blueberry compote.
