  • 200 g bottle pancake shake mixture
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 medium firm pears (460 g), peeled, cored, sliced thickly
  • 2 tbsps fresh raspberries
  • ⅓ cup (115 g) honey
  • 1 tsp rosewater

  • Fresh raspberries, extra, to serve

Make pancake batter according to bottle instructions. Pour into a small bowl.


Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.


Add pear slices to the pancake batter. Cook coated pear slices, in batches, adding more oil in between, for 2 mins each side or until golden. Drain on kitchen paper.


Place raspberries, honey and rosewater in a small bowl; mash with a fork to combine and crush.


Divide fritters among bowls. Top with yoghurt and raspberry rose syrup. Sprinkle with pistachios.
