Griddled pear pancakes 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.
