  • Ready In

  1. Toss pear slices with 1/4 cup white sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest to coat.
  2. Arrange butter in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet and place on the center rack of the oven. Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Remove skillet from oven once the butter has just melted, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs in a large bowl until frothy; add milk, 1/4 cup white sugar, vanilla extract, and salt and mix until just combined. Sift flour into egg mixture and stir until batter is just mixed.
  4. Stir pear slices into the melted butter and spread into a single layer. Pour batter over pears.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until pancake is set in the middle, the sides have risen, and the bottom is browned, 28 to 30 minutes. Top pancake with confectioners' sugar.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Using a preheated, cast-iron skillet will distribute heat evenly and produce a superior, well-browned, nicely textured pancake.

Baked it in cast iron skillet. Needed ~10 minutes extra cooking time. Substituted one thinly sliced apple for pear.

This was an oily flan- like floppy concoction. I followed the recipe to a tee and it just isn't something I find at all palatable.

Followed recipe exactly. Came out delicious! Custard-like, fruity, but not too sweet. Great for breakfast. Will add more pear next time.

THIS ROCKS! My family absolutely inhaled this! A definite keeper.

Tasty, easy to make. I sprinkled nutmeg over just before putting in oven.

This basic German pancake recipe is a very nice twist using Pears. I diced 3 large pears because I like fruit in every bite. That's the only change I made. I will make this again. It's easy and ...

Excellent - was a great brunch dish and enjoyed by all. Only change I made was to use peaches instead of pears, because that's what I had on hand. Will definitely make again and next time will...

Easy and delicious!

very eggy and squishy.
