Jamie Oliver's Pear Pancakes

I found this pancake recipe on Jamie Oliver's website and made them for breakfast.

They were just as he described - so easy, fluffy, and delicious.  I accidentally almost ate the entire batch.  Jamie suggests serving these pancakes with natural yogurt and honey.  Call me old-fashioned, but I just like to eat mine with a little buttery spread and some Aunt Jamima. Yum.

Jamie Oliver's Pear Pancakes
-1 cup of self-raising flour
-1 cup of milk
-1 egg, preferably free-range or organic
-a pinch of sea salt
-1 pear
-a few knobs of butter
-natural yoghurt, to serve
-runny honey, to serve

1. Put the flour, milk, egg and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Once combined, grate in the pear, core and all then stir it through with a spoon.
2. Put a large pan on a medium heat and add a knob of butter. Once that melts, add the batter, a spoonful at a time to the hot pan. You’ll need to cook them in batches, cooking them for a few minutes until golden on the bottom then flipping over and cooking for a few minutes more until they’re done.
3. When they are golden and fluffy serve them right away with a dollop of natural yoghurt and some runny honey drizzled all over the top
