Delicious pancake treats from British Lion Eggs. They are egg-xtra delicous!


  1. In a large jug, gently whisk together all pancake ingredients until smooth. Leave to stand for 10min.
  2. Heat a medium (20cm) frying pan over a medium heat and brush with oil. Pour in about 5tbsp pancake batter and swirl to coat the base. Cook for about a minute until deep golden, flip or turn and cook for a further 30sec. Repeat with remaining mixture to make 8 pancakes in total.
  3. Melt about a third of the butter in a large non-stick frying pan, add pecans and cook over a medium-high heat for 2min, add 1tbsp of sugar and the salt and toss to coat. Cook for a further minute before transferring to a plate.
  4. Wipe pan clean and return to the heat. Add the remaining butter and pears and fry for 4-5min until deep golden, add remaining sugar, toss and cook for a further minute.
  5. Meanwhile, in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, melt the chocolate, milk and vanilla together until smooth.
  6. Spoon the pears and pecans into the pancakes and drizzle with the hot sauce. Serve with ice cream, if you wish!
