Make
  1. To make the berry relish, combine the cornstarch with a tablespoon of water and set aside. Place berries, sugar and maple syrup in a saucepan and simmer over a low heat for 3 minutes until berries have softened. Slowly add cornstarch mixture and cook, stirring continuously until compote is thick and glossy, about 1-2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. To make the maple butter, place the butter and maple syrup in a bowl and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. To make the pancakes, combine the flour, baking powder, lemon rind and vanilla seeds in a bowl. Whisk egg yolks, maple syrup and buttermilk until combined, add to flour mixture and mix until smooth. In a separate bowl, use a hand mixer to whisk egg whites and a pinch of salt until soft peaks form, and then fold through flour mixture.
  4. To cook the pancakes, heat a lightly greased large non-stick frying pan over low heat. Cook 1/3 of a cup of the mixture, in batches, for 3-4 minutes each side or until puffed and golden.
  5. Serve warm hotcakes with berry relish, a dollop of maple butter, coconut flakes, crushed pistachios and edible flowers.
