Orange Spice Pancakes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by velorutionista

A delightful, surprising citrus flavor permeates these pancakes. Flax seed adds a little crunch, and the spices hint at a bit more depth than your average pancake!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set a medium size cast iron skillet (or other heavy skillet) over medium high heat to preheat while you mix the batter.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients (flour through flax). Stir with a whisk till all is evenly and thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Add orange juice to dry ingredients and stir gently till just mixed. A few lumps are okay, but be careful not to overmix.
  4. When the skillet is hot, spray lightly with olive oil (or butter flavored cooking spray if you prefer). Drop batter by 1/4-cupfulls into skillet. Pancakes will be rather thick and about 4 inches across.
  5. Let cook a few minutes, then flip gently and cook the other side a few more minutes, till bottom is golden and the centers are done.
  6. Remove to warm plate and tent with foil while you cook the remaining pancakes. Serve with fresh fruit or maple syrup.
