Get oranges and make these orange pancakes, they are magical.


1 cup/ 120g pastry flour

1 ½ teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon orange zest

2 tablespoons orange juice

¾ cup milk

1 large egg

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

To serve: orange syrup and orange bits (optional)


In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt and baking powder). In a separate bowl, whisk together the liquid ingredients (milk, oil, orange juice and egg).

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Heat a pan over medium heat till a drop of water sizzles on contact.

Put a drop or two of oil in a pan and rub it off using tissue paper. If using a non-stick pan, oiling is not necessary.

Scoop batter by ¼ cup onto the pan, cook for 1 or 2 minutes until small bubbles form on the surface. Using a spatula, flip and cook on the opposite side for 1 or 2 minutes. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.

Serve with orange syrup for more orangery flavour.
