Griddled Pear with Sloe Gin

Katy at Crabtree & Evelyn has created this lovely dessert just for me, and now I’m sharing it with you!



6 Sweet Dutch Pancakes
3 red pears, sliced
Knob of butter
Sprinkle of cloves
Teaspoon cinnamon
Fine grating of nutmeg
A slug of sloe gin
Ice cream or crème fraîche to serve


Melt the butter in a griddle pan and add the pears and the spices. Griddle for about 4-5 minutes. Slosh in some sloe gin before you take the pan off the heat.

Microwave the six pancakes together for about two minutes until they are warm. Or heat them up individually in the pan for an extra spicy, sweet flavour.

Discard the cloves and layer the pears on the pancakes. Serve with crème fraîche or vanilla ice cream – and an optional cheeky shot of sloe gin. Oh, I do love a bit of gin, dear.
