Spiced Caramelised Pear and Fig Buckwheat Pancakes

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.

    Can you make the batter in advance, say leave overnight in fridge to use in the morning? X
