Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Preheat your oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6.
Quarter the pear lengthways (no need to peel), remove the core and thinly slice.
Pop the pancakes onto a large baking tray in a single layer.
In a small bowl, mix together the creme fraiche and half the honey, then whip until slightly thickened, 2-3 mins. Set aside for later. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.
Lay the bacon in a single layer onto a lined baking tray.
Once the oven is hot, bake on the middle shelf of your oven until golden brown and crispy, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.
While the bacon cooks, pop a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
Melt the butter in the pan, then add the pear slices, remaining honey, the cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
Cook the pears until softened and sticky, 4-6 mins, turning every min.
Once softened, remove from the heat and set aside.
Meanwhile, pop the pancakes on the top shelf of the oven to warm through, 3-4 mins.
Once warmed, remove the pancakes from the oven and spread the honey cream evenly on top of each.
Transfer the pancakes to your plates (2 per person) and place one on top of the other to make pancake stacks.
Top with the honeyed pears, spooning over all the juices from the pan.
Finish with the crispy bacon and a sprinkling of toasted almonds.
