I love the versatility of this recipe.  I have made it using Apples, Bartlett Pears, Asian Pears, Peaches, Bananas, and with fresh berries on top minus the caramel sauce.  If you leave off the caramel sauce it is sugar free and makes a good compromise for diabetics and low-sugar diets.  It can easily be made gluten-free by substituting the flour for a GF baking mix, but they don’t tend to puff as much.

Pancake

Ingredients
4 large Eggs
1 cup Milk
3/4 cup Flour
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla and/or Almond Extract
1 ripe Pear (Bartlett, Anjou)
Nutmeg

Directions
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
Place first 4 ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  Set aside.
Prepare 4 (8-inch) oval baking dishes by coating with olive oil and placing 1 teaspoon butter in the bottom.  Place prepared dishes on a cookie sheet.
Place dishes on cookie sheet in oven 4 to 5 minutes until butter melts and starts to brown.
Pour 1/4 of the batter (roughly 1/2 cup) into each dish and top with 3 to 4 slices of fresh pear, thinly sliced.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
Remove from baking dishes to plate.  Drizzle with caramel sauce and sprinkle with fresh ground nutmeg and powdered sugar if desired.

Caramel Sauce

Ingredients
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Water
1/4 cup Cream

Directions
In a small saucepan, melt over medium heat, butter sugar and water.
Bring to a gentle boil, and  boil for about 4 – 8 minutes, time to reach a syrup stage.
Test with a metal spoon.  It should sheet slightly on the spoon and clean to the spoon on the last drops.
Remove from heat, and whisk cream in slowly so it doesn’t curdle.
Sauce is ready to serve.
