In partnership with Doves Farm.

This is my second recipe with the wonderful Doves Farm–Spiced caramelised pear and fig pancakes using their fantastic Organic Stoneground Wholemeal Buckwheat Flour.

Doves Farm is encouraging people to bake organic for Organic September and I thought these simple and seasonal pancakes would fit the bill.

Doves Farm’s Organic Stoneground Wholemeal Buckwheat Flour is an absolute staple in my house and recipes–I’m sure you’ve seen all my buckwheat flour recipes! I first discovered it many years ago, and it really was a game changer. I absolutely adore its slightly nutty flavour and it is also nutritious.

My spiced caramelised pear and fig pancakes are delicious–I sweetened the pancakes a little with maple and some lovely warming spices. Served with sticky cinnamon maple roast pears, fresh figs, creamy yogurt, toasted walnuts and a good drizzle of maple syrup. So so good!

This recipe makes 8 so is great for making at the weekend for your family.
