Cinnamon Pear Pancake Cake

Double duty recipe ! Bake in a deep dish for dessert or in a shallow dish for breakfast/brunch - This Cinnamon Pear Pancake Cake is delicious, served warm with whipped cream, syrup or ice-cream

Delicious and ever so easy to throw together. This Cinnamon Pear Pancake Cake can be served as dessert or as an addition to brunch and your family will love it ! It is pancake after all..

I made this Cake the other day when I ran short on time and we were all craving dessert, which of course I do not make that often anymore.

For a dessert Pancake Cake, I used a deep oven dish, about the same size as a standard cake baking pan but twice the depth.

A couple of months ago, I made this same Cake but used a rectangular 20 x 30cm (9 x 12 inch) oven dish and reduced the baking time to 35 minutes. I also used thinly sliced Apples instead of Pears which is just as delicious, both fruits works very well with Cinnamon anyway.

The Pancake Cake has exactly the same texture as a pancake, only much thicker, whether you are using a deep or shallow dish.

12 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

2 1/2 cups Pancake Mix
3/4 cup Sugar
1 t Ground Cinnamon
4 Large Eggs
2/3 cup Milk
2/3 cup Fresh Cream  {double cream/whipping cream}
1 t Vanilla
3 Pears, peeled and sliced into 5-10 mm thick slices

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - grease a deep 23cm (9 inch) oven dish with butter or similar.
2.) Place the oven dish into the oven for 10 minutes.
3.) Meanwhile combine the Pancake Mix, Sugar and Cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
4.) In a separate bowl, beat together the Eggs, Milk, Cream and Vanilla - add to the dry mixture and whisk until smooth.
5.) Remove the heated oven dish from the oven - pour the batter into the dish - arrange the Pear slices on top of the batter, pressing down a little, keep going until all the Pear slices have been added to the batter (you should have around 3 layers of Pear over each other with batter in between)
6.) Bake 1 hour or until a tester comes out clean - if the cake darkens too much whilst baking, cover loosely with a piece of aluminum foil - shiny side up.

Dust with Icing Sugar if you wish and serve warm with whipped cream or ice-cream.
