I discovered these kind of pancakes some time ago and I have been making them to find the best recipe. They are very 'sensitive' and it is the best to use white spelt flour - when using wholegrain flour, the pancake does not rise as it is heavy. 

SPELT DUTCH BABY with pears / Makes 1

INGREDIENTS for batter:
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2/3 cup white spelt flour
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • 1 TBS melted coconut oil (not hot!)

INGREDIENTS for topping:
  • 2 pears
  • dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 200 C. Grease and flour a skillet or round baking tray (20-24 cm).

Combine all batter ingredients (I use blender or hand mixer) and set aside. Wash pears and slice them. Pour batter onto the skillet or tray and arrange pear pieces on the top.

Place skillet or tray into the oven and bake for about 20-25 mins or until golden brown and puffed.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips and serve warm!
