Perfect pancakes

One of my favourite weekend treats is a plate of thick pancakes with fresh fruit compote, and if I'm being really decadent... Chantilly cream, lashings of butter, real maple syrup and a side of bacon or bangors. My kiwi friends look at me sideways... until they taste. This is a true American breakfast feast. Sweet and savoury indulgence but you have to get the pancakes right or it just doesn't stack up!
