You’re probably sick of all these sweet things, but pancakes are such a Saturday morning kind of thing, I thought I’d post these today. When I bought my waffle iron, Williams Sonoma had this citrus waffle recipe that was quite good.I adapted their idea to pancakes to save time, and intensified the flavor by adding citrus juice and cinnamon to the syrup.

  • Citrus Pancakes
  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • zest of 1 lime
  • zest of 1 orange
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • citrus syrup (recipe follows)
  • whipped cream (optional)

1. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
2. Measure out milk in a glass measuring cup, and whisk in eggs, butter and zests. Pour into dry ingredients and whisk until just incorporated, but still lumpy.
3. Grease a nonstick griddle set to medium with a teaspoon of butter. Spoon out batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto the griddle and cook until small bubbles form on the batter but do not break. Flip pancakes and and cook for 30 more seconds. Place all finished pancakes in a warm oven until ready to serve.
4. Serve with citrus syrup and whipped cream.

Citrus Syrup

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • juice of 1 lime
  • juice of 1 orange
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1. Whisk all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
