Easter Cinnamon Pears Pancake!

We all know EGGS are a symbol of Easter and I just want to share with you my utmost favourite oven baked "thick" French pancake recipe that would be perhaps nice to make for the Easter Brunch. 

It came from one of the best cooking books! "Cooking in cast iron" by Valerie Aikman-Smith

Here it is:

Preheat the oven to 450F.

1. On low-medium heat in a cast iron frying pan melt 2 - 3 TBSP of butter and add medium thik slices of Bosc pear (2 or 1) that was washed and cored (keep the peel). Sprinkle with cinnamon liberarly and turn them after few minutes around. 

2. In a mixing bowl with a hand electric mixer on medium high mix well the following ingredients untill fluffy and smooth: 
4 eggs
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp brown sugar

3. Pour it over the pears in the frying pan and place in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown and puffed up!

Serve drenched in the REAL CANADIAN maple syrup (or honey as the French recipe calls for). 

Happy Easter to you all,
