I absolutely adore strawberries and can eat a punnet a day when they are in season here in Sweden. Which isn’t very long sadly. So, when the season is over I turn to frozen berries as a replacement and enjoy the flavour in smoothies or like in this recipe – a compote.

Compotes are easy to make and will brighten any breakfast bowl or pancake stack. I often make this apple compote when I have apples that are starting to look sad but when I want something more fresh I turn to this super quick to make strawberry compote.

All you need is 4 simple ingredients and five minutes and you have made your very own compote. I recommend topping these banana and oat pancakes with it when it has cooled for a few minutes. You can thank me later!
