As many of you know, I love pancakes. I really do! Give me any kind of pancake and rest assured I will eat it. Then I will ask for seconds. Then I will pronounce it to be my favorite type of pancake. Then I will insist that I have the recipe!
Which is so funny because can a person really have so many favorites! I have to just be honest and say that it is just to dang hard to pick a favorite. So of course I was on a quest this week to enjoy as many pancakes as possible.
You see work starts back mid week –next week for me. This means that I will have to alter my breakfasts a little. No more pancakes during the week, oh no they will have to be saved for the weekend.
Needless to say I am eating pancakes like it is my J-O-B!
You see the beauty in that picture. No, you can’t see it….well I can! That is a pear tree. Full of pears. I am not sure what type they are. They are not your typical soft, juicy pear. In the hubster’s words “they are cooking pears”. Cooking pears! Well I think I can handle that 🙂
So I have been eating this little babies daily. I have grilled them, sautéed them, heck I have even had a few just sliced with nut butter. They are crunchy like an apple – I like it!
But I am suppose to cook with them. So what better to do than bake? Bake a pancake!
Pear Dutch Baby
- 3 eggs
- 3/4c almond milk (heated)
- 1/2c flour of choice
- 1/4c cornstarch
- pinch salt
- 2t vanilla extract
- 1 packet stevia
- 2 small pears, sliced
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place pan (I used iron skillet) in oven while preheating.
- Heat the milk in the microwave until luke warm
- Place egg in blender and blend. Add the milk to the eggs (a little at first to temper).
- Next add the remaining ingredients through the stevia. Blend for about 30 seconds or until combined
- Spray skillet with non-stick spray. I put one tablespoon of butter in the bottom of the skillet to melt for flavor. You can leave this out if you choose.
- Pour the batter into pan, top with pear slices, and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
Now top that beauty with whatever you choose. You can sprinkle with powdered sugar, or you can top with honey, maple syrup, and even a little whipped cream if you have any 🙂
So go ahead. Serve this up to your loved ones. It’s okay to have pancakes for dinner. I promise they will love it. They will request seconds. They will announce it as their favorite pancake ever and request the recipe!
