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
PREHEAT oven to 450º F.
POUR melted butter into 9-inch deep-dish pie plate or cake pan. Swirl to coat bottom and sides of plate.

Review This Recipe
Delicious and easy. Was a great dinner for my whole family!
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.
I used peaches, it was really quite tasty.
pear pan cake
I shared this with my daughter, since my husband is not partial to pears. We enjoyed it. I thought it was easy to make.
Pear Oven Pancake
I made this last night. It is soooo good. I liked it better at room temp. than warm. Will make it often, Thank you for another good recipe.
Whenever I make this for dessert, my children and husband all have a chorus of praises. I'm always guaranteed lots of hugs when they smell this oven pancake cooking. They prefer it with apples, but they love it with pears too.
Ooh la la!
Delicious! Next time I'll try it with sautéed apples. This dish is very reminiscent of the mexican desert dish - Flan. If you want to impress your family and friends, this will definetly rate at the top!
This pear pancake was really tasty. It was quick to make and light and fluffy to eat. It was not too sweet, but the flavor of the pear was enough. Next time I will probably bake it a bit longer though.
I used fat free evaporated milk, splenda baking blend sugar substitute (2 tablespoons) and 2 pears instead of just 1. It was great. Using 2 pears adds a lot of extra moisture however so it took about 45 minutes to bake rather than 15-20.
Fast and Fabulous
This recipe is so easy and the results are just like the picture. I used Nestle Carnation Skim Evaporated Milk and I got wonderful results with a few less calories! This is a keeper for a quick, excellent, tasty dessert.
This makes an excellent brunch item. Next time I will try to cut the fat with non-fat evaporated milk and egg substitute. Loved it.
Pear Oven Pancake
I made my own twist on this and used granny smith apples,(did not have a pear)and Who surprised me the most was my husband. He is very picky, but it was gone in no time! Thanks for a easy & wonderful recipe, this will be made over and over.
Pear Oven Pancake
This was great and I made it sugar free for a diabetic.
Great base recipe
Last week I made with pear according to recipe, it was very good. This week I made but used blackberries instead. Instead of cinnamon, I did a fine sprinkling of granulated sugar. It came out great. This will probably be good with any type of fruit.

Accidental Substitution (but good)
My family loved this, even though I mis-read the ingredients. I used sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated. It gave it a dense bread-like texture. (I wondered why it took longer to cook.) I used apples sauteed in butter with ginger, just until soft, because my daughter doesn't like pears. Tastes wonderful. Will follow recipe better next time.
This was delicious. I used a lowfat version using fat free carnation evaporated milk, fat free butter and 1 egg plus two egg whites. It was still delicious. I will make again.
Pear Oven Pancake
Excellent! Nice flavor, the sugar & cinnamon added just enough sweetness to the pears. Just a note, follow instructions on using deep dish for baking, as the pancake raises juices can over flow.
I will make this again!
What a great pancake
I was a little sceptical about this one and was I pleasantly surprised. It reminds me of a peach pie dish my mother-in law used to make. I will definitely make this again & maybe I will try sliced peaches.
pear oven pancake
This was great, but a lot of calories. I cut it the next time by using egg beaters, Carnation fat-free, and splenda and it was almost as good. Thanks for the recipe.
Different sort of breakfast
This pancake was very good I really wasn't sure what the texture would be like since I have kids that are very sensitive to different textures but they ate it and really liked it so it is a hit in our home!
