Heart shaped raspberry buttermilk pancakes

Sometimes it's the little things in life, like drinking out of your favourite mug on a Saturday morning, tasting your first British strawberry of the season, or even using your favourite pen to write in a crisp new notebook. These moments can perk you up on what might otherwise have been a normal day.

Pancakes make me happy. They also show others you care. And by using a little heart shaped mould and a small amount of extra effort you can make these heart-shaped pancakes. Try and tell me they don't make you happy just looking at them?

I liked this recipe from Nigella's website, and I simply took half a pack of raspberries and heated them up with a spoonful of sugar until they melted down to a gorgeously bright compote. Serve on top of the heart pancakes with a handful of fresh raspberries.
