Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir milk, orange juice, and orange zest together in a bowl. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate large bowl. Whisk egg, butter, and vanilla extract into the orange juice mixture. Whisk orange juice mixture into flour mixture until smooth batter forms.

  • Heat a lightly oiled skillet over medium-high heat. Drop batter in 1/4-cup spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Notes:

Milk, orange juice, and orange zest can be combined and stored in the refrigerator in advance to allow flavors to combine.

Coconut oil can be used in place of the butter, if desired.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

2.20.16 The orange flavor comes through nicely in these pancakes. They cooked up beautifully tender and moist. As suggested by the recipe author I did use coconut oil instead of butter. At 1/4 cup each I ended up with 8 pancakes. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly as written and I could not taste the orange juice let alone the Creamsicle effect. My orange juice was fresh squeezed and my oranges were organic. I don't know what went wrong. Read More

Tasty tasty! Used fresh-squeezed OJ left out zest. Wonderful creamy orange flavor. Made 8 using a 1/4 cup scoop. If time is not an issue let pancake batter rest for 10-15 minutes for even fluffier cakes! Read More

I topped these with creme cheese to actually give it a creme flavor and drizzled half of a fresh orange on top using the orange I had originally zested. It gives it a more fresh vibrant orange taste. And honey on top is always delicious Read More

I had to multiply the recipie by 4 to feed my family of 6. I had no orange zest so I used 1/2 a teaspoon of orange extract per recipe and the orange flavor is rather subtle but good. I like these pancakes very much! Read More

Great chg of pace breakfast. Only change I'll make next time is to double the zest. It is correct serves 4 (barely if you love pancakes!). Wife loves maple syrup my fav is my homemade blackberry syrup which really brings out the orange flavor. Plus the color metric is off the chart! Read More
