  • For Fig Compote:
  • 4 cups - figs, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 cup - Sugar (more or less, depending on taste)
  • 1/2 cup - water
  • For Whole Wheat Cakes:
  • 1/2 cup - whole Wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup - all-purpose flour
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2/3 cup - skim Milk
  • 2 tsp - baking powder
  • 1 tbsp - oil
  • 2 tbsp - Honey
  • How to Make Whole Wheat Cakes with Fig Compote:

    1. To prepare Fig Compote:
    2. Bring the sugar and water to a boil over high heat.
    3. Simmer for five minutes.
    4. This will dissolve the sugar and make a syrup.
    5. Add the fruit and continue to cook for about five to 10 minutes, until just tender.
    6. Remove the fruit from the juice and set aside.
    7. Reduce the juice over medium-high heat for about five minutes, until it becomes syrupy.
    8. Pour the reduced syrup over the cooked fruit.
    9. Set aside and keep warm.
    10. For Whole Wheat Griddle Cakes:
    11. Mix the flours, baking powder and salt in a bowl. (This can be done the night before and kept covered on the counter.)
    12. Lightly beat the milk, egg, oil and honey together.
    13. Add the liquid ingredients all at once to the flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just moistened.
    14. Do not over mix, a few lumps are fine.
    15. Warm a lightly greased griddle pan over medium heat.
    16. The pan is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on the griddle form fast-moving bubbles.
    17. Pour batter onto the griddle:1/8 cup for small or 1/4 cup for large pancakes.
    18. When the tops of the pancakes are covered with holes and the bottoms are golden brown, flip to brown the other side.
    19. Serve the griddle cakes topped with the fig compote.
