Tarte Titan ----Japanese Pear and Pancake Version

Tarte Tatin Pancake Version 
Somehow, felt an urge to have something sweet for dinner.

This was today's dinner :-)

Tarte Tatin, pancake version.

Also, it wasn't apple.  I used Japanese pear.

Very easy, you can make it in 20 min.  I used pancake mix ( about 75 grams or half of the packet) , half of the big pear ( sliced ), an egg, 3 tablespoonful sugar.
A teaspoonful butter.  That's all.

First, you need to use small sized Teflon-coated deep pan.  Spread butter on the bottom of the pan and 1/3 depth of the pan.  ( like making butter wall )

Stir the egg in a bowl.  Add milk.  Stir well again.  Then add pancake mix.
Mix well.

Place the sliced pear on the bottom and make a few layers.  Add sugar.
Start cooking.  Water comes out of the pear.  Keep cooking till the water evaporates and disappear.

Pour the pancake dough into the pan to cover already sitting pear.
Close the lid.  Make sure the heat is very low.

Cook for 10 min.  Flip the pan onto a plate!  Ta-da-.  Voila!  Bon Appetit!

Cateriam --- Cat Cafe in Shimokitazawa

Add caption
Was a bit busy last week mainly from research task.

Friday night I decided to escape to a dream world..... that is a cat cafe.

This cafe currently has 11 cats.

You can try for 30 min. without drink and for 500 yen or stay for an hour with one drink for 1000 yen.     You can ask them to play with you (!) or simply enjoy watching them.       Felt content after playing with them and watching.

Thanks to cats.   I love you all :-)
