Pancakes with Caramelised Pear, Mascarpone and Maple Syrup

There isn't really a story behind this... other than sitting on the lounge after dinner one night REALLY wanting some dessert. So I checked the fridge and put together a few things I happened to have around.

First make some crepe-like pancakes and set them aside somewhere to keep warm.

In a pan gently melt some brown sugar with a little bit of butter.
Add some chopped walnuts, stirring them until they are warm and golden.
Add a few slices of fresh pear, frying on each side until warm (not too long or they become a bit mushy).

Stack a couple of pancakes on a plate, top with some pear, walnuts and caramel, a scoop (or two, or three) of mascarpone then drizzle lovingly with maple syrup.
