  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) sugar
  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 375 ml (1 1/2 cup) 15% cream
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) milk
  • 4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) vanilla
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) butter, melted
  • 4 egg whites, whisked into soft peaks
  • 1 pinch of salt

Topping

  • 2 pears, peeled and quartered
  • 45 ml (3 tbsp.) butter
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup

  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the cream, milk, egg yolks and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Mix in the melted butter and egg whites.
  • Pour enough batter to completely cover grids.
  • Close the waffle maker. Flip the machine so that the batter is evenly distributed; doing so will result in very crispy waffles.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or according to the instructions on the waffle maker.

Topping

  • In a frying pan, brown the pears in butter.
  • Add the maple syrup and pear jam.
  • Continue cooking for several minutes. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, heat the cream, and melt the cheese in it.
  • Top the waffles with the pear mixture and drizzle with the cream cheese sauce.
