Pear pancakes with blueberry sauce

During blogmas, I mentioned that we have pear pancakes with blueberry sauce for Christmas breakfast.  I received a lot of questions about them, so I thought I’d find out for you what the recipe is!  It turns out it wasn’t a standard recipe found online – it was one that my MIL cobbled together.  And it’s really simple:

Pear Pancake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 pear, peeled and coursely grated (Bosc is a good variety)

• Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
• Mix in the milk, egg and melted butter, and grated pear
• Make pancakes on griddle

Blueberry Sauce

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh wild blueberries are best!)

• Stir water, sugar, and blueberries in a saucepan and bring to a boil
• Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce thickens, for about 15 minutes
• Serve over pancakes and enjoy!

The funny thing is that this year for Christmas we switched it up and had apple pancakes instead. 😛  The base recipe is the same, just switch out the grated pear for finely diced Granny Smith apple and add some cinnamon to the batter.  We opted for pure Canadian maple syrup instead of the blueberry sauce.  We also had sausage rounds and bacon on the side. 😀

What do you eat on Christmas morning? 🙂

  1. Easy enough !!! Will make these for sure 🙂 I hate a protein bar on Christmas morning because I was on the road for work (Far from this yummy blueberry pancakes) 😛


  2. Girl, you are the bomb! I can’t wait to try this recipe! 🙂
    I had granola with fresh mangos and guava and then eggs and bacon with roasted tomato and mushrooms. Totally what I’ve been eating every day on this trip 🙂


  3. I planned on posting a recipe or two over Christmas, but clearly that didn’t go well! 😀

    I love pancakes, but I haven’t made them in over a year for health reasons! I usually use a recipe that pretty much works for aebelskivers, too (got the special pan and all), and I gotta try it with pear and blueberry! Sounds wonderful.
