  • 1 tablespoon Grade B maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For Pancakes
  • 3/4 cup rye flour
  • 3/4 cup (3 3/4 ounces) all purpose flour

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  1. For Compote: Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add diced apple and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Take off heat, stir in maple syrup and cinnamon, cover and set aside.

  2. For Pancakes: In a medium bowl, whisk together rye flour, flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Whisk in egg and milk until just combined.

  3. Heat griddle or large non-stick skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes, then add a little butter and swirl to coat pan.

Serve immediately with warm sauce.
