Ingredients

  • 1 batch of your favorite pancake recipe, prepared*
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • Juice & zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

Method

To Make Strawberry Compote

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add strawberries, lemon juice and zest. Mash strawberries slightly to help release their juices. As they cook, strawberries will begin to break down, forming a compote-like texture.
  2. Let mixture come to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in maple syrup and vanilla extract. Let cool, as compote with thicken upon standing.

To Make Whipped Maple Chèvre

  1. Add goat cheese and maple syrup to the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat for 1 minute on high, or until mixture is smooth and fluffy. Alternatively, use a hand mixer to whip the goat cheese.
  2. Add in a pinch of sea salt, and fold into the mixture with a spatula.

To serve, stack pancakes on a plate and spread heaping spoonfuls of maple Chèvre and strawberry compote between each layer.
