Imperfect Pear & Cinnamon Pancakes with Coconut Yoghurt


Pear and Cinnamon Pancakes with Coconut Yoghurt

Using pears from our Imperfect Picks range, try out this cinnamon pancake breakfast recipe. Now this is seriously good way to start off the day!



Cooked pears:


To make the pancakes: 

  1. Place water and diced pear in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Leave to cook for 10 minutes or until pear is tender then remove from the boil and puree. 
  2. Meanwhile, sift the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. 
  3. In a separate bowl, add 1 whole egg, 1 egg yolk, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon and whisk together. 
  4. Create a well in the flour mixture and pour in the egg mix and pear puree, using an electric beater or whisker to combine. (Note: pear puree will make mixture slightly lumpy). 
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk the remaining egg white with an electric beating until soft white peaks form. Fold this mixture gently into the pancake mixture. 
  6. Over medium heat, lightly spray a non-stick fry pan with olive oil. Spoon ¼ cup pancake mixture onto the pan, cooking for approx 2 minutes on each side (or until golden). 
  7. Serve up with coconut yoghurt, cooked pears (see instructions below) and a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy! 

To cook the pears: 

  1. Heat the butter over medium heat and add diced pears. 
  2. Add the cinnamon and sugar and stir frequently for 3-5 minutes, or until lightly browned.
