Pear Oven Pancake

Bake something inexpensive and different for breakfast!

This is based on a recipe from Erin Chase at $5 Dinners (she has a cookbook out called "The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook that is filled with $5 dinners) that she got from the Carnation Holiday baking book and went over very well and there were no leftovers.  I can't say it is really a pancake - the consistency is somewhere between a quiche or flan and a pancake with a pear custard sort of flavor that was delicious.

  •  1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 12 ounce can  Evaporated Milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ripe pear 
  • Non-Stick Spray Coating 
  • Pancake syrup (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 TBSP Sugar 
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Peel and core the pear, then slice it into thin pieces.

Pour in a medium to large bowl 1/2 cup flour.

Add 1/4 cup of sugar to the flour.

Add 1/4 tsp of salt to the flour and sugar and mix thoroughly.

In a separate medium bowl, a mix the can of milk and the three eggs together.  Pour this mixture into the flour/sugar/salt mixture and mix thoroughly.

Spray the pan you are going to use with a non-stick coating spray.  The original recipe called for a 9x9 inch round pan, but I used a slightly larger pan.

Pour the batter into the baking dish, then arrange the pear slices on top in a pinwheel pattern.

In a small bowl, mix the 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 2 TBSP of sugar together.

Scatter the topping mix over the top of the pear bake.

Bake 15-20 minutes (I baked for a little over 20 minutes) until it is golden brown and puffy.

I served ours warm with pancake syrup on the top.
