Pancakes With Fruit Compote

Fruit compote is a cooked fruit dish made from fresh or dried fruits. Made at home from easily available and quality ingredients, compotes offer significant nutritional advantages as all fruits are a good source of vitamin C and fiber.
I like to make it often as a good amount of fruit can be used in it which otherwise would be lying in the fridge, waiting to be cut and eaten. So make it as kids will surely love it and you will also not regret as its very tasty and healthy too.

Ingredients -
For the pancakes -
Flour - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Egg - 1
Sugar - 3 tbsp
Butter  - 2 tbsp

For the Fruit Compote

Apple - 1
Pear - 1
Peach ripe - 2
Pineapple cubed - 1/2 cup

    compote on it.
