Pear & Toasted Pecan Pancakes

These pear & toasted pecan pancakes aren't quite the traditional pancake recipe but they are extremely tasty nonetheless!


125g Flour sifted
1tsp Baking powder
1 Pinch Salt
1 Egg
200ml Buttermilk
2 Pears cored & finely chopped
2tbsp Currants
60g Pecans toasted & finely chopped
Maple syrup and fresh raspberries to serve


Tip the flour, baking powder and salt in to a mixing bowl, form a well in the middle, add the egg in to the well and whisk. Slowly add the buttermilk while whisking then stir in the cinnamon and star anise.

Add the pears, the majority of the pecans and currants to the batter and stir. Heat a frying pan and melt the butter or coconut oil making sure the frying pan is coated.

Using a ladle, place a decent amount of the mixture on to the pan to form a circular shape. When bubbles appear and the pancake turns a golden brown flip over with a spatula and cook.

When ready to serve, drizzle with syrup, chopped pecans and pear slices.
