Hey, hey, haaaaaaay!
Warning: Pure, unadulterated, get-yo-granny-out-of-the-room food porn coming your way in…
Happy Pancake Sunday, friends!
A few weeks ago, I asked what fruits you guys were loving on this winter. While it sounded like MOST of you were on the cutie train along with me, ONE person chimed in with something different…
beer’s pear’s for you! 😉
As I bebopped (which Meghan would totally approve of) around my kitchen, collecting my ingredients, thinking of the flavors I wanted to PEAR (tee hee) with my fresh winter fruit, I caught a glimpse of my crazy bed-head in the microwave door and I had it…
But not just any dried-up, bottled-up, collecting-dust-in-the-cabinet-since-gingerbread-making-season-is-over ginger, oh no…I went for straight for the fresh stuff and I’m SO glad I did!
As they cooked up, the warm aroma of the fresh ginger mixed with the sweet pear got me drooling in seconds.
The photo session was pure agony.
It was everything I could do to get those last and final shots. I was on my knees and just begging for
my soul for a bite!
And when that bite FINALLY came?
Well, let’s just say I had quite a bit of sound effects to go along with my collection of
food porn. 😉 BUT since I know you guys ONLY read the articles, how about I hand over that recipe now, huh?

No need to hide this one under your mattress, I’m pretty sure your mom
would approve! 😉
But don’t just take my word for it…go make these NOW!
What is your favorite kind of pear?
For me, it’s a toss-up between D’Anjous and Reds!
your pancakes look unbelievable!! so thick and fluffy!! i like pears but don’t even think i can name one kind!!
One of my favourite things about Sundays: seeing your pancake recipes. 🙂
I like pears, but they’re never really my go-to when I buy fruit…I should buy them more often. In terms of types…I have no idea, I don’t think I’ve ever actually looked at the names anytime I’ve bought one!
Aww, thank you Sam!! I’ve never been a HUGE pear person either until recently…I’ve been finding some of the juiciest/sweetest pears at the store lately…I just keep going back for more!
I have pears in my fridge right now, but no ginger! I could just do cinnamon pear! Loving these! <3
Cinnamon or cardamon or even some apple pie spice would be great in these! Oh…or even just go with apples instead of the pears…IDEEEEEEEASSSSSS!
These look SO good!! I love pears, but have never had pear pancakes!
Me neither…until I made these! Now I want to have them everyday! Lol
My FAVORITE smoothis is cardamom-ginger-pear, so you know these pancakes will be happening very soon. I even have a pear!
Best weekend ever. Miss you already. Wahhhh! Can you please just move to ATL???
Move to ATL? Sure, just do something about all that friggin TRAFFIC!! Ugh, I swear it gives me heart palpitations! #wishiwerekidding
Gah, I’m totally adding cardamom to the next batch I make!
It’s really not bad – the way I go to work I never even hit it. 🙂
YAYNESSSSSSSSS!!!!! Ahhhh, you are the BEST. Thank you thank you thank you!! I am SO going to make these very soon. As soon as I got over that ugly pancake tower I made this morning (got the pic on twitter??) which was a optic failure, but tasted aaaaah-mazing. I do the pear dance now (together with the your sound effects. I guess that is definitely ‘un-approved’ 🙂 🙂 ) Happy Sunday Sweetie!!
Haha! Oh how I love you my sweet sweet Lucie! xoxox
You’re pancakes always look amazing. You are so creative with your food. Can I come round for dinner? and breakfast (if pancakes are on the menu :] ) and maybe lunch too? 😀 hehe
Aww, thank you Nikki! And welllllll, I do just HAPPEN to have an extra bedroom…help me FINALLY take down my Christmas tree, and we’ll work something out! 😉
HOLY COW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YUM!!! Can I use egg whites – liquid – instead of eggs which I don’t have in the house right now.. I can buy but just curious
Of course! Just use the recommended serving, which I believe is three tablespoons for one egg white…should work JUST FINE! 🙂
ummm… yes please? I’ll supply the gluten free flour at Blend if you will make me pancakes! 🙂 Pretty please?? 😉
Consider it done gorgeous! 😀
Ginger and pear is the BEST combo ever! I doesn’t matter what kind of pears, all pears, any pears!
These look so delicious! I pickled pears last autumn with ginger and they turned out great- now i’m thinking I should have popped a few over pancakes! Yum!
Ohhh! I’ve never had pickled pears before, but that sounds DELICIOUS!
Heck yes! I used to never really buy pears, but I’ve fallen in love with them this season. I love the flavour combination with ginger too!
Me too! Pears have never really been my go-to fruit, but lately I’ve been finding some really good ones…so sweet and juicy!
Looks delish Heather! How do you cook your all pancakes with such uniform shape and size? I’m lucky if I can get mine to come out round!
Thank you, Amry! The trick is to work VERY quickly as soon as you spoon the batter into the skillet…and with thick batters like this, you just have to use your spoon to sort of spread them out some. It all comes with practice…I had some sorry looking pancakes when I first got started! Lol
Thanks for sharing Heather! I’ll try it next time. Love all your beautiful pancakes!
&& I’m pretty sure if my momma didn’t approve, I would rebel.

Yes I totally approve of all types of kitchen dance antics and these amazing pancakes. Forget the articles; this is all about visual stimulation. Damn, those are some mighty fine cakes, and I happen to love all things pear and pairings when they come in the form of wine or cheese.
That’s it…I need to talk to a web designer…I need a button that says “Meghan Approved!” 😀
Oh and I TOTALLY thought of you the other day when I was at the farmer’s market in Atlanta…I found the BEST aged gouda I’ve ever had in my LIFE!! Totally worth the eight bucks for a wedge only slightly larger than my hand!
Oh, my very own button. Can we make it sparkles with just a smudge of chocolate?!
I’m embarrassed to admit what I pay for cheese. Lets just say it ain’t pretty. I was once a card carrying member (alright I confess; I didn’t actually have a card) of the cheese of the month club for an entire year. Love me some Gouda.
Of course! And if you’re lucky, I’ll even though in a few sprinkles! 😉
Ahhh, cheese of the month club?! That’s awesome! I’d totally do something like that IF I liked bleu cheese…I feel like I lose some culture points, but I’ve just never found one that I liked…too stinky and bitter! :-/
You gotta work your way up to the blues (that could be a song). Start with a nice, although subtle gorgonzola.
Well, I’ve tried gorgonzola before and didn’t care for it too much, but maybe I could try it warm? One of my favorite restaurants here in town serves a black and bleu flatbread (steak and bleu cheese) and I actually really like the flavor of the cheese in it! Hmm, I think a pear/gorgonzola grilled cheese/panini thingie is in my near future! 😉
I missed my pancakes the last few weeks from travelling, I think you should ship me some of your leftovers each week. 🙂
Ha! If only there WERE leftovers!! Just wait, I’ll start taking orders for Blend in a couple of months! 😉
To be honest, I have been loving the Bartlett’s that Whole Foods has been carrying. Usually I’m a red girl, though…but Seckels are delicious, as are Cornice! When I worked at Central Market I was able to try any of them I wanted. 🙂
Ginger. Anything with ginger works for me. [Ginger, pear, and BLUEBERRIES is yummy as well…or perhaps next week you can try ginger mango blueberry?]
Ok, so you seriously have me wanting to make a trip to Nashville right now just to find all these pears! I’ve never even heard of a Seckel before!
Ginger mango blueberry?! Omg, brilliant!!
Hey, I’ve been frequenting your blog for a while now and promised myself I would try a pancake recipe ‘soon’ but never seemed to. ): (timeeeee, haha) Anyway, they all look so delicious and this was the first recipe I tried (today was Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day) and I have to thank you oh my God!!! They were absolutely delicious!!! (:
Definitely trying more soon. ^-^
I was wondering though, is there any way that you could write how many ‘grams’ for the riced cauliflower in your new recipe, I really want to try it but can’t figure how to measure it. ):
Awww, yay!!! This makes me SO happy! I’m so SO glad you liked them! I swear I so totally blown away by the flavor combination that I almost fell out in the floor! Haha! Happy Pancake day, love!
And guess what…it’s your lucky day! I just HAPPENED to weigh the cauliflower the other day just out of curiosity. It was about 65grams! 😀
Eee thank you! Cannot wait to try it out!
And yes, you definitely did an amazing job! Fresh ginger worked wonders. I very honestly DID have my jaw on the the floor! 😀

Pears are hands down my favorite winter fruit, too. I’m for sure drooling on my keyboard right now.
