Buttermilk Pear Pancakes
I saw Jamie Oliver make a version of these with shredded pear, but I think just cutting them into chunks is easier and less messy. So, first cut your pear:
Next, mix the flour, buttermilk, egg, oil, salt, sugar, baking powder & cinnamon. Now buttermilk is pretty thick, and I like to have a thinner pancake mix, so there is more liquid added than you would need if you were using regular milk. Mix together and add your pears.
Heat a heavy bottomed pan to about medium and add some butter. It usually takes 2 or 3 pancakes before you get the temp right, so don’t get flustered if the first few aren’t beautiful(they will still taste good).
Add about 2 Tablespoons to the pan for each pancake. When bubbles start coming through the top, you are ready to flip! Turn over and cook for a couple minutes on the second side. Move the done ones to a plate while you cook the rest. When they are all done, top with maple syrup and some chopped walnuts(and butter if you like).
As a kid, I would always eat leftover pancakes cold with rasberry jam, and I will say its still tastes pretty good:) Enjoy…
