Raclette cheese pancakes with fruit

Our dietitians' favourite

Originating in Switzerland – where a traditional meal of raclette includes cold cuts, potatoes and a host of condiments – Raclette is a cheese designed specifically for melting. We love tradition, but couldn’t resist sharing these novel ways to enjoy Canadian Raclette’s distinct unctuosity.

raclette cheese pancakes with fruit

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups (310 mL) unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups (310 mL) milk
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 oz (225 g) Canadian Raclette cheese sliced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
  • 1 apple sliced
  • 1 pear sliced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) red or green grapes halved

Preparation

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients and make a well in the centre. Pour milk and vanilla into the well, stirring with a whisk until mixture is combined. Stir in the eggs one at a time.  

Raclette grill method

Heat raclette grill to medium-high and melt butter. Spread out fruit on half the surface and let brown. Pour small ladles of pancake batter onto the other half of the grill. Cook for 3–4 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, melt cheese in the pans under the grill.

Serve pancakes topped with melted cheese and fruit. Add a pinch of cinnamon and some maple syrup, if desired. 

Oven method

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Heat a skillet on medium heat and melt some butter.

Using a ladle, pour pancake batter into the skillet, spread it out and cook for 3–4 minutes on each side.

Repeat for remaining batter. Place pancakes on a parchment-lined baking sheet and top with cheese.

Place in the oven to melt cheese. Meanwhile, in the skillet used for the pancakes, melt butter and brown fruit. 

Remove pancakes from the oven and serve topped with fruit. Add a pinch of cinnamon and some maple syrup, if desired.
