  • For the pancakes:
  • 100g Fruyo Vanilla (0% fat)
  • 220g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml buttermilk
  • 25g butter
  • For the rhubarb compote:
  • 240g Fruyo Vanilla
  • 12 sticks Rhubarb
  • 50g caster sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Honey


1 Put all pancake ingredients (except the butter) into a blender and mix until nice and smooth. Leave to rest for approximately 20 minutes.

2 For the rhubarb compote, preheat the oven to 180C /350F/gas 4. Cut the rhubarb into 10cm/4” lengths and arrange in a single layer on a large baking tray.

3 Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over the rhubarb. Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes or until the rhubarb is just soft to touch.

4 Remove, cool and then using a fork lightly crush the rhubarb into a coarse puree.

5 Stir the pancake mixture and transfer to a jug. Melt a little butter in a frying pan. Pour enough batter in the centre of the pan to make a 7.5cm/3” disc. Gently fry for a minute until bubbles rise to the surface. Using a palette knife flip it over and cook for 30 seconds more until cooked and golden. Repeat with the remaining butter and pancake mixture.

6 To serve, stack the pancakes on a plate. Serve with the rhubarb and cinnamon compote, a dollop of yoghurt and drizzle with honey.
