These are great for breakfast too!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe for the pancakes and 1/4 of the syrup for breakfast. It made 9 medium pancakes and the syrup is very sweet, so very little needed with the orange sweetened cakes. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Stars Tag.

These are delicious! Had this for brunch and they sure were light and fluffy and orange-y. The batter's a bit thick so I find myself spreading it on the griddle with the back of the wooden spoon. I cut back the sugar into half when I made the sauce since I'm watching my sugar and microwaved it mixing it every now and then (oops, lazy me). I would have followed it to a T but better safe than sorry. Simply a health preference. Anyway, they still came out sweet, tasty and recommended for any type of pancakes who'd want to try a different flavor for a change. Thanks for posting this, Sydney Mike!

Wow! I love this recipe, and it's not just for dessert! I made this for breakfast, using corn muffin mix to make cornmeal pancakes which worked well with the tangy orange sauce. This is full of flavor, and I will make these again. Thanks for posting!
