We loved these pancakes! The amount of orange flavor paired really well with the chocolate chips. Yum. The pancakes fluffed up nicely, too. This recipe made about 12 good sized pancakes. Thanks for this yummy treat!
What great pancakes! Light and fluffy and the orange and chocolate are a perfect match. Especially loved the orange butter with this - between that and the chocolate chips these pancakes needed no syrup at all. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
These were wonderful pancakes. Light, fluffy, tender and oh so flavorful. I loved the subtle flavor of the orange with the bittersweet chocolate chips. I will be making these again and again. Thanks so much for sharing this tasty treat.
Update: They are just as awesome every time I make them. I never get tired of these babies.
