Ginger Pear Dutch Pancake

  • 2 T. butter
  • ½ c. flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground dinger
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ c. milk
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 2 medium-sized slightly firm pears, peeled and sliced

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Place the butter in a 10" nonstick or cast iron skillet; slide it into the oven to melt while the oven is pre-heating.

Whisk together the flour, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. Make a well in the center and add the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Mix together until blended. Set aside.

Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the butter with the brown sugar. Arrange the sliced pears on top in a single layer. Pour the batter over the pears.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Take the skillet out of the oven and turn it over onto a cutting board. Slice it up and serve with cinnamon whipped cream, if desired.
