Fluffy and buttery buttermilk pancakes topped with a sweet cranberry compote will add plenty of yum to your weekend. Pancake batter is one I use over and over again. It is simply the best and makes incredibly fluffy, tender, and buttery pancakes.

Blueberry compote is made with just 5 simple ingredients: blueberries, brown sugar, maple syrup, lemon juice, and cinnamon. It is quick and easy to make and has a lot of flavor. Plus, it's really versatile. Serve it on pancakes, waffles, French toast, oatmeal, ice cream, or pancakes.

As you heat the blueberries, their skins will burst and their juices will color the entire mix a deep purple-blue color. You could also call this blueberry sauce, but the compote sounds good.

Topping the pancakes with fruit sauce is a great change from the maple syrup. Of course, you can also use maple syrup. I will not judge.

Blueberries are possibly my favorite fruit to eat alone and to cook with. They are like little blue gems you can put in your mouth and I love the deep color they give food when cooked.
