Easy Mango Pancakes
Easy to make mango pancakes are a super breakfast treat - my secret ingredient is a good quality mango compote.
Servings: 2 people
- 120 g plain white flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 eggs
- 75 ml milk
- 100 g mango compote
- 25 g butter
- 1 tbsp butter - (for cooking)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup blueberries
Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Combine the milk, mango compote and eggs in a separate bowl and whisk together with a fork. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan, and add to the milk mixture, stirring well.
Pour the milk mixture into the flour mix and gently fold until combined and smooth with no lumps.
If possible allow to stand for 30 minutes before cooking.
Warm a frying pan or flat griddle pan over a medium to low burner, and heat. use a piece of kitchen paper to spread a little butter over the pan.
Spoon one tablespoon of batter per pancake into the pan. When bubbles can be seen on the top, the pancakes are ready to flip.
Turn once and cook until the bottom is coloured brown. Keep warm in the oven by covering with a tea towel.
Serve with more butter, blueberries and maple syrup.

- Use soft flour - so cake flour - NEVER strong bread flour.
- Mix the batter just enough so it is smooth, if you over mix you will overdevelop the gluten and this can make the pancakes tough.
- Use fresh baking powder. Baking powder has a shelf life of 9-12 months before it loses its oomph. When fresh, baking powder will fizz when you add a teaspoon a a glass of hot water - if it doesn't then throw it and buy a new tub.
