MethodPeel and core pears; cut into wedges. In bowl, toss pears with lemon juice. Arrange in greased 11- x 7-inch (2 L) glass baking dish; set aside.
In large bowl, whisk flour with sugar. Whisk together milk, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla; whisk into flour mixture. Pour over pears; dot with butter.
Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until pears are tender and custard is puffed, set and golden, about 45 minutes.
Sprinkle with icing sugar; broil until bubbly and glazed, about 1 minute. Let cool on rack for 15 minutes before serving.
