Cheddar Pancakes with Maple Baked Figs

cheddar pancakes with maple roasted figs

It’s been a while since there’s been a breakfast dish on this here blog so it seemed the perfect time for these Cheddar Pancakes with Maple Baked Figs. The minute September arrived my feed went from posicles and no bake dishes to apple and pumpkin everything…but over here there has been a lot of Figs consumed. Savory pancakes aren’t usually a thing in my house, but figs work better with cheddar pancakes than a plain old standard one.

Growing up my pop had planted a bunch of fruit trees in the early years of him and my nana living in their house and there was this gloriously large fig tree that only my mum and I would gravitate towards when they came into season, meaning we had our share of the produce. We would usually depart with a bag full of fresh figs and a belly full of them as well.

I’m not sure about you, but Figs and Cheese are a match made in heaven and these pancakes are only ever so slightly cheesy which means if you want to take the flavor up a notch you just add more, but the flavors go well together which feels appropriate for these shortening days and plump ripe figs are only roasted long enough to soften and not lose their shape.

Fresh and dried figs are still eaten as real treats in my house because they remind me of my childhood and are the kind of fruit that are seriously underrated. They are the perfect snack and are not often made like in today’s post so if you appreciate them just as much, I would love to hear your thoughts on this dish?

How to prepare Cheddar Pancakes with Maple Baked Figs

  • Pancake batter: Create your pancake batter.
  • Add cheese: Add your grated cheddar.
  • Prepare your figs: Slice your figs and drizzle over maple syrup.
  • Figs + oven: Place your figs in the oven and bake until soft.
  • Cook your cheddar pancakes: Place a little butter in your frying pan on medium and pour a ladleful of batter into your frying pan.
  • Serve: Stack up your pancakes, top with a baked fig, drizzle a little maple syrup over and serve. Enjoy.

Tips for the best Cheddar Pancakes with Maple Baked Figs

Minimal maple syrup: As fresh figs are naturally very soft and sweet enough, the maple syrup is minimal when baking and these aren’t in the oven long so as to retain their shape, if you prefer them sweeter and softer than leave in the oven for a further 5 minutes.

Subs instead of figs: Roasted Plums or any other summer stone fruit would be lovely with the cheddar pancakes, though you’d need to cut them smaller and roast for minimum 15 minutes to really soften due to them having a firmer flesh then figs.
