  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar You can use white if you like
  • 2 and 1/2 cups of butter milk and pear juice from can you want only 2 and 1/2 cups total liquid
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons UNSALTED butter melted (you can use margarine if you prefer it)
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla do to your taste
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon do to your taste
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg do to your taste
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 can of diced pears I can my own, but you can use store bought


  1. Drain a can of diced pears, reserving the liquid. I use a small wire sieve for this, and allow the pears to sit in it, mixing it around to make sure the juice is draining out of them well.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Melt butter
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, add liquid and vanilla, whisk in melted butter.
  5. Make a well in the dry ingredients, pour the liquid into the center.
  6. Mix until almost smooth, you want some lumps to make them fluffy.
  7. Over medium heat, heat some oil in a skillet. These are meant to be crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. You know your pan is hot enough when a couple dropletes of water dance across the oil and disappear.
  8. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into pan, layer diced pears and walnuts on top. When bubbles have formed in the middle and the edges are dry (about 2 mins), flip the pancake over and continue cooking. DO NOT FLATTEN PANCAKE!! When you smoosh them down, you take the air out of them… No more fluffy pancake.
  9. Keep warm on a low heat oven (275 degrees in an oven proof dish) while you cook the rest.
  10. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
  11. Freezing: Flash freeze on a cookie sheet, put into ziploc bags in a single layer,use parchment paper between layers. Label and date. Use with in 2 months.
  12. To reheat: Preheat oven to 375 degrees, place frozen pancakes in a single layer on a cook sheet, bake for 8 mins or until hot.
