Take your favorite pancake recipe, and sandwich whipped maple goat cheese (made with our Plain Chévre + maple syrup!) and homemade strawberry compote for a fancy-feeling breakfast.


  • 1 batch of your favorite pancake recipe, prepared*
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • Juice & zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (4-oz) log Roth Plain Chèvre goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt


For the 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. Compote will thicken upon standing.

For the 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.
