We loved this! Quick to whip up, pretty orange color, and very tasty. Served with Orange Buttermilk Pancakes but would be wonderful with any pancake or waffle. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Believe it or not, orange syrup tastes great over pancakes and waffles! Thank you for posting it, Roxygirl. I've been looking for a recipe like this. Easy to make, the texture is smooth and it's delicious served warm. My daughters were surprised how much they enjoyed it, but I wasn't.
