I was feeling a little adventurous this morning and decided to shake up the basic pancake recipe. The orange flavor is noticeable, but subtle, and melds nicely with the white chocolate chips. They were a huge hit.

Excellent pancake recipe! So light and fluffy and loved the orange taste. Had the batter all made, then found that the white chocolate chips I thought I had were actually butterscotch, so used semisweet with good results (looking forward to making again with the white chocolate). Served with just a little maple syrup - yum - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by Boomette
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 3 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 3⁄4 cup orange juice
- 1 orange, zest of
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons of melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- white chocolate chips
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix your dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients together, including the orange zest but NOT the butter.
- Pour your wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add the melted butter and stir it in!
- Preheat your griddle/pan over medium heat. When it is nice and toasty, rub a little butter (or non-stick cooking spray) across the surface. It should sizzle and bubble just a little, but should not be smoking.
- Pour batter onto your pan using a 1/4 cup of the batter for each pancake. When you get the beginnings of the tell-tale bubbles, sprinkle some white chocolate chips onto the wet pancake. However many you use is up to you. A little does go a long way, since they will melt and spread out a little.
- When the bubbles are really talking to you, flip the pancake and cook until the other side is golden brown. Continue with the remaining batter.
- Enjoy with the toppings of your choice.
