Dragon Fruit Pancakes With Dragon Fruit Citrus compote
It's been snowy here day after day for a week now, and we loved it. The kids do not have school, so they played outside when the sun was peeking out on the horizon, and my husband joined them for fun playing snow sled outside. And this was before he turned our room upside down, looking for his snow pants; however, he founds them, and for God's sake, it didn't look like our room after. But not to worry, I ensured he fixed the place after that commotion.
While they were playing outside, I had fun playing in the kitchen, making new pancake recipes for our Valentine's day brunch. I opted to use Dragon fruit because I thought the pink color would match the Valentine's Day color, and boy, I was wrong; not all Dragon fruit has pink color inside, so the color did not match somehow. But I manage to create a new delicious pancake recipe for Valentine's Day.
Do you want to treat your loved one to a delicious breakfast in bed for V-day? Not to worry, I have delightful mouth-watering pancakes to woo your special someone for this great day. It's effortless to make, refreshing, and enjoyable to eat in every season!
Dragon Fruit Pancakes
2 cups ready mix pancakes
One dragon fruit smashed
Direction: Prepare the mix according to the package's instructions; add smashed dragon fruit to the compound, adjust the amount of water or milk if necessary, or add more sugar to make it sweeter.
Dragon Fruit Citrus Compote
1 Dragon fruit
2 Oranges, squeeze one for the compote and the other one for garnish
1/3 cup of sugar
3 tablespoons Honey or Maple syrup
2 teaspoons of lemon
1/2 cup of water
Direction: Remove the flesh from the inside of the dragon fruit. Put in the saucepan, and add water and sugar. Cook over medium-high heat, occasionally stirring, squeezing orange juice, honey (or maple syrup), and lemon. Continue stirring; mash the fruit gently with the fork to help the cooking process faster. As the mixture reaches boiling, the compote will thicken slightly and cook until the sauce thickens, about 20-25 minutes.
Now ready to serve, you can garnish it with sliced oranges and fresh-cut dragon fruit and pour the Dragon fruit citrus compote on top of your pancakes.
