"A rustic batter is dropped onto fresh pears before being baked for a healthier dessert. Using less sugar than most recipes I've seen, the crisp flavor of the pears is highlighted. My family and I enjoy this at breakfast. I leave 1 or 2 of the pears unpeeled to add a bit of color."

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Butter a round 9x2-inch, 6-cup baking dish.
- Fill a large bowl halfway with water and add lemon juice. Peel all but 1 of the pears. Core and cut all the pears into eighths. Add pear slices to lemon water to keep them from browning.
- Combine egg and milk in a bowl and whisk until combined. Set aside.
- Whisk flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons cane sugar, and brown sugar together in a separate bowl. Use a fork to cut cold butter into flour mixture until it resemble pebbles.
- Drain pears and put into a bowl. Sprinkle with corn starch and 1/4 cup cane sugar; toss to coat.
- Pour milk-egg mixture into the flour mixture. Mix batter until just combined. Add pears to the prepared baking dish. Drop batter by spoonful onto the pears.
- Bake in the preheated oven until browned on top, about 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
