Pear Oven Pancake

After looking through the Holiday Recipe Guide from Carnation, I decided this Pear Oven Pancake was worth a try!  And boy am I glad I did!  It took minutes to prepare, and of course filled the house with a fantastic aroma.  It puffed up like a balloon (as seen above), and then returned to a “pancake” look after it cooled down.  Slice and serve. Yum!

  • Place melted butter in the base of a pie plate or 9×9 round cake pan and swirl so it coats the bottom.

  • In another bowl, whisk the Carnation Evaporated Milk and the eggs until well blended. Pour into the flour mixture and whisk together. Pour batter into pie plate.

    I got my recipe booklet not long ago and I thought the pear pancake looked good. I think that is the one I will have to try also! The mini quiches look yummy too.
