  • 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)

To serve.

  • 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.

Mango Pancakes - Recipe Hints and Tips
Because of the mango compote these are never going to be super light and fluffy,  there are a few things to do to help you make the best pancakes.
How to make fluffy pancakes
  • 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.
Mango Pancakes - adaptions & substitutions
Dairy Free Mango Pancakes
Simply swap out the milk for coconut milk or any other non-dairy milk, and swap the butter for dairy free spread.
