Drunken Pear Pancakes

(4 servings)

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoons pear liqueur or brandy
  • 1 ripe pear cut into 1/4-inch dice (peeled and cored)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
Beat egg in a mixing bowl. Add milk, vegetable oil, pear liqueur, and diced pear - whisk together.

Add sugar and flour to wet ingredients - Gently fold in the dry ingredients - Do Not Over-Stir (pancakes will turn out tough).

Allow for a "lumpy batter" and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto lightly oiled griddle or pan at 350 degrees.

When bubbles form on top, and the edges have set, flip the pancakes.

Put a little butter on top of each pancake while the other side cooks.

Should cook in 4-5 minutes.
