    Pear and buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup

    Juicy pieces of pear are hidden in these pillowy buttermilk pancakes, which make the perfect canvas for a drizzle of intensely sweet maple syrup.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Makes: 10


    125g plain flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 Medium egg, lightly beaten
    200ml buttermilk
    2 conference pears, peeled and cored
    1 tbsp vegetable oil, for greasing
    3 tbsp maple syrup
    50g pecans, toasted and roughly chopped


    1. Sift the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Add the egg and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon to create a thick, lump-free batter. Gradually stir in the buttermilk. Cut the pears into hazelnut-sized pieces; stir into the batter.
    2. Preheat the oven to 110°C/gas ¼ and heat a large frying pan over a medium heat. Dip a scrunched-up piece of kitchen paper into the vegetable oil and use to wipe over the pan. Drop 3 large tablespoonfuls of batter into the pan, to make 3 separate pancakes. Cook for 2–3 minutes until the bases are firm and bubbles begin to appear on the surface. Flip them over using a spatula and cook for 2 minutes, until golden. Keep warm in the oven while you cook the remaining batter in the same way.
    3. Drizzle with the maple syrup and scatter with the pecans before serving.

    Drinks recommendation

    The combination of aromatic charm and malty depths in Assam tea is what these pancakes need.
