For the pancakes

  • In a large mixing bowl or jug add all the ingredients except the butter, and whisk until just combined. The batter will be thick.
  • Pre-heat the (flat) girdle or frying pan over a medium heat and wipe with oil or butter.
  • Take a small amount of batter and do a test pancake to make sure that the pan is hot enough.
  • Use a large serving spoon to pour the batter onto the warm girdle or frying pan.
  • Cook for about 2 1/2 minutes, until the bubbles form on the surface and start to pop. Flip them over and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • As the pancakes are cooked place them on a cooling tray lined with a clean tea towel, cover the pancakes with the tea towel to keep them warm.
  • Repeat until you have used all the batter, keeping the pan lightly buttered and clean between pancakes.

For the Plum Compote

  • Put the plums, sugar, and water into a pan.
  • Heat gently until the sugar is dissolved then poach for about Poach 20 minutes until the plums are soft, and the compote has thickened.
  • Pour into a bowl and leave to cool to room temperature.
