Heat a skillet over medium heat. When skillet is hot (if you flick water onto the skillet, it should sizzle), take about ¼ cup of batter and pour onto skillet. Let cook for 1-2 minutes (until the pancakes begins to bubble slightly. Flip and let cook for another 1-2 minutes until pancake is cooked through.
To make pears, melt butter in a medium skillet. Core pears, slice into thin slices (around 1/16”³), and add to butter. Stir in 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and continue to cook over medium-low heat until pears are soft. Add more maple syrup if you like a little extra sweetness.
Serve pancakes with a healthy scoop of pears, liquid, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
