I never really like making pancakes, because they make so much mess in the kitchen and then they are gone in a second. Then again, this is one of the very few recipes that I have memorized from my childhood, and that must mean something 🙂 ( I suppose this is a classical recipe where children were allowed to get involved). I can still repeat it: 1 egg, 1 glass of flour, 1 glass of milk, salt and sugar. That’s basically it. Those were pancakes I made as a child; this is my grown-up version 🙂
Ingredients for 2 (made 6 pancakes)
|For the pancakes||For the compote||For the crumble|
|equal amounts of flour and coconut milk/cream (I used 1 glass of each)||2 figs, cut in 4 pieces,||oats|
|1 egg||1 apple, peeled, cored and cubed||brown sugar|
|bit of salt||1 pear: the same as apple|
|a bit more of brown sugar||slice of butter (I am using lactose free)|
|vegetable oil for frying||a bit of sugar|
- First you need to prepare all your ingredients (as in measure, peel, cut etc)
- Mix together pancake batter, taste it and adjust the seasoning if needed (I wanted to add more sugar).
- Heat up 2 pans and when they are hot, add to one vegetable oil, to other: butter.
- In the pan with butter let apple and pear simmer with some sugar (you can use different fruit if you want. obviously 🙂
- Meanwhile on the other hot pan, using the ladle, spoon the batter and bake the pancakes one by one, putting them afterwards in a soup plate, covered with another soup plate (or any other solutions of your preference to keep the pancakes warm)
- When you see that the pancake batter is coming to an end (I had made 4 pancakes and had 2 more to go), put in a dry pan oats and sugar on a low heat (I left it there for 5 min, stirring from time to time) and add the figs in the fruit compote pan.
- Now assemble all the ingredients as you want (wrap them, stack them, eat them separately) and enjoy your lick-your-fingers-delicious breakfast!
