Recipe — Crepes with Pears and Maple Syrup
Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
10 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 4 pears, peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich flavour)
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk, warmed
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


  1. Cook the pears in maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat until the syrup is almost completely reduced. Set aside.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients, with the exception of the almonds, in a blender and mix well. Gently stir in the pears. Pour the batter into a bowl and add the sliced almonds.
  3. Preheat a 20-cm (8-in) non-stick crepe or cast iron pan over medium heat. Butter the pan and pour in 60 ml (1/4 cup) of the mixture. Tilt the pan to coat evenly. Cook the crepe for about a minute, then flip it over and cook for another 30 seconds.
  4. Remove the crepe, set aside in a warm place and clean the pan. Repeat in order to obtain a total of 10 crepes.
  5. Serve hot with your favourite selection of cheeses.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
