National Pancake week is in February! O.k., I didn’t know it either until Wendy from A Day In the Life On The Farm picked “Pancakes” theme for this month’s Bread Bakers event.

I just love this group because it’s pushed me to make things that I wanted to but probably wouldn’t have. This group is made up of people all over the world in a variety of cultures. I see recipes that I wouldn’t otherwise.

Swedish Pancake with Raspberry Compote

A couple of years ago we were on vacation in Colorado and there was this food truck that sold crepes. At that time I couldn’t say that I’d ever eaten one but was amazed that they had a long line to order one all day long.

My daughter who lived in France for a time was obsessed with a good crepe so I eventually tried them and learned what the buzz was all about. Amazing!

Swedish Pancake with Raspberry Compote

These Swedish pancakes with Raspberry Compote might not qualify as a crepe but, to me, they are very similar.

They are a flavorful thin batter that cooks into a light lacy pancake that is perfect as is or with a topping like this beautiful raspberry compote, homemade whipped cream, and toasted almonds.

Here are a couple more breakfast recipes that we love!

Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!

I make a lot of quick and easy recipes but have to admit that these took a bit of time to make and got much easier as I went. They were really worth the time they took. Now it’s time to see what my friends from Bread Bakers made!

Ingredients

Raspberry Compote

Pancake

  • 1-1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Toppings

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter

Instructions

Raspberry Compote

  • Combine raspberries, sugar and vanilla extract together in a medium-sized saucepan.  Cook over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes.  Cool completely.  Compote will thicken as it cools.

Garnishes

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Put a piece of parchment paper on a rimmed baking sheet.  Spread almonds over parchment paper and toast until browned.  10 to 15 minutes.
  • Whip heavy cream with a whisk attachment on an electric stand mixer.  As soon as cream becomes fluffy add 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar.  Blend together until whipped cream is thick enough to peak.  Place in the refrigerator until pancakes are cooked

Pancake

  • Reduce the oven to 200°F and line the rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.  This pan will be used to place cooked pancakes in the oven to stay warm.
  • In a medium-sized bowl combine the flour and salt.  In a large-sized bowl whisk eggs together and then milk and cream.  Gradually whisk dry ingredients into wet ingredients.  The batter will be thin.
  • Heat a 10″ cast iron skillet over moderate heat.  Add 1/2 tablespoon of butter in the skillet and as soon as it begins to brown add 1/2 cup of the batter.  Swirl the pan to thinly coat the bottom of the pan with the batter.  Cook until the bottom layer is brown (2 to 4 minutes).  If the butter gets dark too quickly the heat is too high.  Turn the pancake and cook until bottom is browned, approximately 2 more minutes.  I used a fish spatula to turn the pancake.  Place cooked pancake flat on the parchment paper and keep in the oven until serving.  Repeat starting with butter until pancake batter is gone

Assembly

  • Fold each pancake in half and then half again to form a triangle.  Spoon raspberry compote over pancake followed by whipping cream and slivered almonds.  Serve immediately.
  • Pancakes may be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator 1 to 2 days.  Store raspberry compote and whipping cream separately.

Notes

Calories are based on all of the raspberries and whipped cream being used. I didn’t need all of it.

Thank you! We really loved them! The original recipe used lingonberries which I didn't have so used the raspberries. I almost went with strawberries which would also be amazing.

Wow factor is right!! These are gorgeous! I'm a sucker for raspberries - I'd be so pleased if this was put in front of me for breakfast!

Thank you, Katherine! We really love raspberries too. The original recipe called for lingonberries and some kind of juice that I'd never heard of so this was an obvious alternative for us.
