Pancakes w/Caramelised Pear Sauce - Orgran

  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Cook Time: 20m
  • Serves: 16



Pancake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups ORGRAN Self Raising Flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • soft butter or monounsaturated margarine
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Caramelised Pear Sauce Ingredients:

  • butter or monounsaturated margarine
  • peeled and diced pears (approx. 4 large pears)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup thickened cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • whipped cream, for serving


Pancake Method:

  • 1. Place all the ingredients into the bowl of an electric blender. Blend until ingredients are well combined.
  • 2. If using an electric frypan, heat to 160°C (325°F). (Point No 5-6 on a dial of 1-10.) Pan will cook pancakes more evenly if it is seasoned first. This is done by melting 1 teaspoon of butter in pan. Spread butter over base of pan. Heat until butter is golden brown. Using paper towel, wipe butter from pan.
  • 3. Spray pan with cooking spray.
  • 4. Place 2 tablespoons of mixture into pan for each pancake.
  • 5. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn and cook on reverse side until golden brown.
  • 6. Place plastic wrap over a fine wire rack. When cooked, remove pancakes from frypan and place onto wire rack. Cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying out.
  • Soft pears will produce the best flavour. If the pears are hard, it is best to cook them for approx. 5 minutes in the microwave with a little water to soften them slightly.
