  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and melted butter.

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

  4. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or cooking spray.

  5. Place the heart-shaped cookie cutter onto the skillet and pour the pancake batter into the cutter, filling it about halfway.

  6. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, then carefully remove the cookie cutter and flip the pancake.

  7. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

  8. Repeat with the remaining batter, re-greasing the skillet and reusing the cookie cutter as needed.

  9. Serve the heart-shaped pancakes with a dollop of homemade compote or jelly.

Easy Homemade Compote:


  • 2 cups mixed berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup water


  1. In a saucepan, combine the mixed berries, sugar, lemon juice, and water.

  2. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

  3. Cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the berries have softened and the mixture has thickened.

  4. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  5. Using a blender or immersion blender, puree the compote until smooth.

  6. Serve the compote warm or chilled alongside the heart-shaped pancakes.
