Method

Strawberry Compote

Step 1

Wash and hull strawberries and cut in half.

Step 2

Place in a small saucepan with water and cinnamon and bring to the boil.

Step 3

Reduce to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until strawberries have thickened.

Step 4

Leave to cool slightly, remove cinnamon stick and then stir in sweetener spoon by spoon, tasting as you go until it’s to your liking.

Pancakes

Step 1

In a small bowl mix almond meal, eggs, milk, vanilla and sweetener.

Step 2

Heat up a small non-stick fry pan (a bilini pan is ideal) and add a knob of butter. Ladle some pancake mixture in and cook over medium heat until edges are cooked through (3-5 minutes) and little air bubbles appear. Use a heat-resistant spatula to flip and cook on the other side for another couple of minutes.

Step 3

Repeat with rest of the mixture.

To Serve

Step 1

Stack pancakes and spoon over strawberry mixture. Dollop with thick cream and eat immediately.
