  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • Spray a loaf pan (8½" x 4½" x 2½") with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine pancake mix and water. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour pancake batter into loaf pan and bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
  • While pancakes are cooking, separate pears and syrup. Place pears in a small bowl and syrup in a medium nonstick pot.
  • Add cornstarch, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract to cold or room temperature pear syrup. Whisk until smooth.
  • Heat syrup mixture on medium-high heat and whisk continuously until it begins to boil, about 5 minutes.
  • Add pears to syrup mixture. Stir. Bring mixture to a boil, about 7 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 3–5 minutes or until it becomes nectar-thick. Stir often to prevent pears from sticking to the pan. Heat to 140 °F or higher for at least 15 seconds. Remove from heat.
  • When pancakes are cooked completely, cut into 6 even slices. Remove pancakes from the pan.
  • Serve 1 pancake slice with ½ cup spiced pears. Serve immediately, or keep warm at 140 °F or higher.

*Marketing Guide
  • Contains wheat (pancake mix). Pancake mix can be a hidden source of common allergens, which include milk, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy, wheat, and sesame.
  • Sesame can appear as an ingredient in foods where it might not be expected  (pancake mix) and may be included in the ingredient statements as "spice" or flavoring."
  • Pancake shrinks away from pan sides after cooking. Cut pieces evenly.
  • The symbol indicates the recipe is whole grain-rich.
  • Creditable grains contribution calculated using the Recipe Analysis Workbook, Method A.
  • To verify pancakes are done, insert a wooden toothpick into the center of the pan. If wet batter sticks to the toothpick, the pancake needs more baking time.
