A classic leftovers dish, which I ate often as a child, this is utterly delicious. I think of it as Scandinavian French toast.

For the blueberry compote

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 vanilla pod
100g caster sugar
1/2 organic orange, juiced
1 teaspoon organic orange, finely grated zest

For the pancakes

Quantity Ingredient
600ml Christmas porridge
4-5 tablespoons plain flour
2 eggs
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1/2 unwaxed lemon, finely grated zest
pinch salt
30g salted butter

Method

  1. First make the compote. Rinse the berries, if fresh, and leave to drain. (Frozen berries don’t need to be rinsed.) Split the vanilla pod lengthways and remove the seeds with the tip of a knife. Mix the berries, vanilla seeds, vanilla pod, sugar, orange juice and zest in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the compote into a bowl. Stored in the fridge, it will keep for some weeks.
  2. For the pancakes, mix the rice porridge and flour then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the sugar, lemon zest and salt and mix well. The batter will be rather thick.
  3. Melt a little of the butter in a non-stick frying pan. Add 1 tbsp of the batter and fry until golden, then turn the pancake and fry it until golden on the other side. Keep warm, and repeat until all the batter has been used.
  4. Serve the pancakes warm with the blueberry compote.
