Very simple and GOOD! Read the ingredients, need I say more? This is a recipe adopted in a very wild zaar adoption in September 2006! I haven't made it yet but as soon as I do, I'll let everyone know!

I didn't make the orange butter, but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. We like banana pancakes anyway and enjoyed the nut crunch factor in these. DH and I ate four to five 4 inch pancakes each and still had 5 left over, so one recipe makes an ample amount for a Saturday breakfast w/ a few leftovers for Sunday. Someday I'll make the orange butter for breakfast w/ guests.
For orange butter
- 1⁄4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1⁄2 teaspoon finely grated fresh orange zest
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons fresh orange juice
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups well-shaken buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
