‘Tis the season for cinnamon spiced everything! We teamed up with All-Clad Canada again and this time they gave us their HA1 Hard Anodized Non-stick 3Pc Set (aka 10″ Frypan and 12″ Frypan with Lid) to work with. When looking back at the recipes we’ve done so far we realized, we hadn’t done any breakfast yet! What’s more perfect for two non-stick frying pans than some delicious autumn-inspired pancakes!?

One of Kat’s favourite fall/winter fruits is without a doubt persimmons. Persimmons are a little hard to explain as they aren’t quite like any other fruit. You truly need to try them for yourself to understand what they taste like. There are two types of persimmons commonly found in grocery stores; fuyu and hachiya. Each with a slightly different shape and flavour. Fuyus, which we used in this recipe, are best eaten when still firm. They’re sweet and oh so delicious. However hachiyas should be eaten when soft for the most delicious flavour. Keep in mind that most places only have persimmons available from October through January.

These Spiced Pancakes with Persimmons are perfect for Autumn. A slight twist on our Buttermilk Pancakes gave these pancakes the perfect lift they needed, while still being their own thing. Topped with a spiced sautéed persimmon mix, it will give you ultimate cozy vibes straight through winter.

Now let’s talk these life-changing pans. The HA1 Hard Anodized Non-stick 3Pc Set features two non-stick frying pans and one lid. As with all the All-Clad Canada products we’ve used so far they are an amazing quality, with super easy-to-grip handles. However, the big selling feature for us is the fact that they’re non-stick and work like a dream. Seriously, without even a drop of oil each pancake lifted from the pan with no hesitation, plus they still browned! Yes you read that right,even without oil and butter these pancakes still got a delicious golden brown and crispy on both sides. We know, these pans are magic.
