We liked Bosc pears best in this sauce, but most any kind will work.

  • Yield: 3 servings (serving size: 3 pancakes and 1/2 cup sauce)


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Bourbon-Pear Sauce


Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and the next 4 ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl. Combine the buttermilk, butter, and egg, and add to the flour mixture, stirring with a whisk until smooth.

Spoon about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot nonstick griddle or nonstick skillet. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Serve with Bourbon-Pear Sauce.
