Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
10 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp orange flower water (optional)
  • 1 pear, washed, cored, and grated
  • Butter, for cooking


  1. Blend flour and baking powder in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. In an electric mixer at high speed, beat the eggs and maple sugar for about 5 minutes or until the mixture has tripled in volume.
  3. Reduce the speed. While still mixing, add in half the milk and the orange flower water (if desired), then the flour mixture. Add the rest of the milk. Use a spatula to stir in the pear. Leave to rest 10 minutes at room temperature.
  4. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-low. When it’s hot, brush with butter.
  5. For each pancake, pour about 80 ml (1/3 cup) of dough into the pan. (Cook 2 or 3 pancakes at a time, depending on the size of your pan.)
  6. Cook pancakes about 2 minutes per side. Turn when bubbles appear in the centre or the edges start to brown.
  7. If not serving pancakes right out of the pan, transfer to a plate and keep warm in a 100° C (200° F) oven.


You can prepare these pancakes in advance. They’ll keep up to 4 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer. When ready to use, simply reheat in the microwave or toaster.

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.
