Directions:

  1. Simmer the apricots, honey, and lemon juice in a small saucepan over low heat for about 5 minutes, or until the apricots have softened but still hold their shape. Keep warm.
  2. To make the pancakes, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon together into a bowl. Make a well in the center. Beat the eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter and pour into the well. Stir until just combined.
  3. Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Grease with the melted butter. Using a heaping tablespoon for each, spoon the batter into the pan. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface.
  4. Flip the pancakes over and brown the other side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel and cover to keep warm while cooking the remaining pancakes.
  5. Immediately serve the pancakes on plates, topped with the hot apricot sauce and a scoop of the farmer's cheese.
Tips:
  • Prepare ahead: The apricot sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 days and reheated.
