When heated with a few teaspoons of lemon and about three tablespoons of natural cane or other natural sweetener, you can turn blueberries or raspberries into a delightful fruit compote that tops off the nutlike taste of your whole wheat pancakes to perfection
To make the fruit topping, use three cups of blueberries, (substitute blackberries or raspberries if you like them better) add about five tablespoons of lemon juice and heat to boiling. Stir in 1/3 cup of cane sugar or natural sweetener. Simmer for about 10 minutes. The mixture will begin to get thicker at which point its time to remove from heat.
