1.To make golden pears, place pears in a small saucepan with syrup, the water and juice; bring to the boil. Reduce heat, simmer, uncovered, turning occasionally, about 15 minutes or until pears are just tender. Remove pears from syrup; reserve syrup. Stir the blended cornflour and the extra water into reserved syrup; stir over heat until the mixture boils and thickens.
2.Sift flour into a small bowl; gradually whisk in combined buttermilk and egg whites to make a smooth batter.
3.Lightly spray a heated large non-stick frying pan. Pour ¼ cup batter into pan; use the back of a spoon to spread the batter into a 10cm (4-inch) round shape. Cook, over low heat, about 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn pancake; cook until browned lightly on the other side. Remove from pan; cover to keep warm.
4.Repeat with remaining batter to make a total of 8 pancakes. Serve with pears and syrup.

Cook pancakes just before serving. Pears can be made a day ahead; thicken syrup just before serving.
