I made these with a regular juice orange and a little extra milk like one reviewer suggested. They are so fluffy and citrusy, just what I was craving for Valentine's Day!
Perfect name for these pancakes, they are fluffy and citrus scented! I love the floral flavor the blood oranges give to them. And the syrup really enhances that flavor. I did halve the syrup amount, but still used the 1 blood orange for the segments in it (we might have liked 2 even!). Other reviewers are right, the batter is thick, it should not be a problem cooking them though, if you stretch it out as you spoon it on to the griddle (or you could quickly and gently spread it right after you lay it on). The positives to the thick batter are 1) the fluffiness and 2) you can make snowpeople or other shapes easily with it! For us, this served 2 people. These pancakes are delicious and something you might expect to be served at an upscale B&B!
I loved these pancakes they were light, tender and fluffy, with a subtle flavouring. The sauce was just excellant; with a citrus flavour that was sweet and tangy, beautiful presentation, and lastly was a lovely colour. I added 1 extra cup of milk, as I found the batter thick to work with. Your use of the contest ingredients was wonderful. Good Luck in the contest.
These pancakes were pretty good. They were easy to make. However, I made me one pancake. When I went to make another one, the batter had discolored. It was weird. I didn't make another one because of it. I don't know what caused the discoloration. I made them a second time, but on another day, but that time I purt plastic wrap over the top of the bowl and put it in the refrigerator to let the flavors meld a little bit, and I wanted to see if the batter would discolor again, and it did. Other than that, these pancakes are good. The syrup has a good flavor that enhances the flavor of the pancakes. Good luck with the contest. I will probably make these again and just get used to the batter discoloring. Good luck in the contest.
I liked the taste. I think they needed more milk. They were very thick for pancakes, and didn't spread on the griddle. WHen I flipped then, I had to squish them down. And of course, that made them not so light and fluffy! I added some milk to the remaining batter, and the second batch cooked much more like what I am used to for a pancake.
These were a favourite in my household. I had to maek them several times, because it was always requested. Good job on creating this recipe!
