A Light and Fluffy Pancake Recipe topped with homemade Strawberry Compote and Vanilla Mascarpone Cheese. These easy pancakes are perfect for Valentines Day, a brunch or Saturday morning breakfast.



Strawberry Compote:

  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Vanilla Bean Mascarpone:

  • 8 oz. mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


For Strawberry Compote:

  1. To a small saucepan add fresh strawberries, sugar, water and lemon zest. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer for 5 minutes until the mixture thickens, stirring throughout. Remove from heat and place in fridge to let mixture cool.

For Vanilla Mascarpone:

  1. To a small bowl add mascarpone cheese, maple syrup and vanilla bean paste. Set aside.

For Fluffy Pancake:

  1. To a medium bowl add Bob’s Red Mill Homestyle Pancake & Waffle Mix and water. Whisk together until smooth.
  2. Heat a large griddle to medium high heat. (I like to use nonstick)
  3. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture onto hot griddle. Cook until bubbly, then flip and cook until the center is cooked 1-2 minutes.
  4. Serve with strawberry compote and mascarpone cheese topping.
  5. Optional: top with maple syrup
