These decadent rum and pear pancakes are a tasty alternative to a fall breakfast meal. These delicious breakfast cakes are infused with poached pears and sweet rum to give the batter a smokey aroma.

Often apples are noted as the quintessential fruit of fall but this recipe attempts to subvert this with the addition of pears. The pears are poached in sugar, rum and butter to give them a spiced and smokey flavoring that turns this pancake batter into a sophisticated treat. The sliced poached pears are then added to a patter made from eggs, sugar, flower, vanilla and milk and then grilled on the skillet. The final version can be served along with maple syrup and more poached pears. This is a great breakfast dish to serve during the fall in the morning or at brunch.
