Spiced Pancakes with Cinnamon Pears

If you have ever wondered what the word ‘heavenly’ really means, try this delicious dessert! Silky pancakes, delicately flavoured with spice powders, are lined with a cinnamon-flavoured pear filling, and laced with chocolate sauce.

The pear filling has a really different flavour, because it combines a dash of lemon juice and lemon rind too. One lone spice, cinnamon, works its magic in transforming the pear filling into a gourmet delight!

Serve the Spiced Pancakes with Cinnamon Pears warm, laced with chocolate sauce, and preferably topped with vanilla ice-cream. Fresh Peach Stew also makes a good filling for the pancakes.
