Pear Pancakes

So pear SEASON has hit at our house (we have 2 pear trees!), and I'm LOVING it. I love trying out new recipes, and this one was a HIT, especially with my 1 year old. PANCAKES are always super easy, but these taste extra SPECIAL—definitely different from your regular old pancakes.

Pear Pancakes
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 pear, peeled and diced

Preheat a griddle over medium.

In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and beat until smooth. Stir in the pears. Pour or spoon about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot griddle and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Serve with butter and maple syrup. Makes enough pancakes for 2 to 4.

TIP: Make sure to spray your griddle with nonstick spray so the pancakes don't stick. Also, I think this recipe would be great with peaches instead of pears!

  1. I usually don't like pears (it's a texture thing), but this sounds like a great way to enjoy the taste without the texture! Two pear trees? Sounds like canning season to me. Thanks for sharing your idea.
