These were so elegant and flavorful! The orange sauce is the star of this show. It gets a subtle cinnamon flavor with a little crunch from the walnuts. Not too sweet at all. I scraped up every last drop off my plate. My first pancake was a little too thick to fold into quarters so I added a little more milk. That seemed to do the trick. I think next time I will make them with 3-4 tablespoons of batter. Or I'll just serve them as regular pancakes. This is getting 5 stars for presentation and flavor!!!
