Pancakes with strawberry compote and lemon curd recipe
Take pancakes to the next level for someone special with lemon curd and strawberry compote. This recipe makes fluffy, moist pancakes that are bursting with flavour, and you can serve them up for breakfast, lunch or dessert.
You can make pancakes any time of year, but there’s something extra special about going to all the trouble of making the toppings as well. This pancake recipe marries together sweet strawberry and tangy lemon to create a café-style feast that’s sure to impress someone on their special day.
RACV Club Executive Sous Chef Craig Dowling says the batter can be made ahead of time, as it needs to rest for about 20 minutes before making the pancakes.
“Make the lemon curd next, so you can concentrate. Whisk until there’s enough air incorporated into the mixture and the sugar has been thoroughly dissolved in the eggs,” he says.
“You want to end up with a ribbon consistency, which you can see when you lift the whisk into the air and the mixture falls back into the bowl like a ribbon and slowly disappears.”
