Compote is a beginner cook’s best friend. It literally takes 7 minutes or less and you go from a boring plate of pancakes or waffles to something that pops off your plate making you look like a pro! Compote is this whimsical creation of fruit mixed with syrup, sugar, vanilla and really everything that tastes good! I love it as you can make it pretty healthy and just add to the amazingness of french toast!

Compote is so versatile you can use it for french toast, crepes, waffles, desserts or just eat with a spoon and your tears with some cookie dough. What’s also great and flexible is that you can make this as healthy, tart or sweet as you want to. Compote is really just a fancy word for fruit syrup or “better jam” except I like to make mine more fruit than syrup. Making it more fruit not only tastes delicious and is healthier but also pops out off the plate making you look like some sort of wizard chef. With that said… let’s get you this recipe!
