These pear pancakes are filled with cinnamon flavor and the perfect healthy fall breakfast. They’ve got chopped pears inside the pancakes and caramelized pears on top!
The fall pancake spree continues! You can see the previous recipes here:
This week we have pears!
I tend to overlook pears when it comes to fall foods. I buy them, they sit in the fruit bowl but only get eaten as is. I never bake with them or do anything fun like poaching (too much work)so pancakes seemed like the perfect way to change that.
I actually had a thought to pair (hehe) the pears with rosemary and do something borderline savory, but the fact that it was snowing on my rosemary plant outside deterred me from that. So, cinnamony sweet it was.
The pears bring a more subtle flavor than apples so these are sweetened with a bit of brown sugar and spiced up with some cinnamon. I loved the texture of biting into the pancake and getting chunks of pear in each bite.
Hopefully you’re somewhere with power and were able to enjoy your breakfast. We ate cereal with milk that had been shoved into the snow last night to keep it cold. At least I had these yesterday.
Any ideas for next week’s pancakes?
