No need to prepare this pancake with a griddle. Softly ripened pears and cinnamon paired with a creamy custard-like base make a tender and flavorful combination for indulging your guests. Bake in the oven and then dust with a sprinkling of powdered sugar for a sweet finishing touch.


  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ripe pear, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

POUR melted butter into 9-inch deep-dish pie plate or cake pan. Swirl to coat bottom and sides of plate.

COMBINE flour, 1/4 cup sugar and salt in medium bowl. Whisk evaporated milk and eggs in another medium bowl until blended. Add to flour mixture; whisk for 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pie plate. Arrange pear slices on top of batter in pinwheel design, pushing down slightly. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.

Try these substitutions!

This was easy to make and looked lovely enough to serve at a dinner party. The simple addition of 1 teaspoon of either vanilla or almond extract turned this from bland to tempting. Try using apples instead of pears for a tasty treat.
