step-by-step
instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Roughly chop the figs; place in a bowl. Cover with hot water and set aside to rehydrate, at least 5 minutes. In a bowl, combine the cornbread mix, egg, buttermilk, and 1/4 cup of water. Whisk to thoroughly combine. In a separate bowl, combine the fig spread, maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon of water.

2 Make the pancakes & serve your dish

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat half the butter on medium-high until hot. Scoop the batter into 4 equal-sized pancakes. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until bubbles begin to form and the pancakes are set around the edges. Flip the pancakes, then add the remaining butter. Cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer to serving plates. Just before serving, to the bowl of maple-fig syrup; add the rehydrated figs (draining before adding); stir to combine. Serve the pancakes topped with the finished syrup and pistachios. Enjoy!
