Ingredients

Homemade Orange Syrup:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/3 cup unsweetened orange juice

Buttermilk pancakes:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cups nonfat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 - 1 cup regular milk

Instructions

For the syrup:

  • Combine sugar and orange juice in a medium saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 25 minutes until mixture is thickened and reduce to about 1 cup. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the pancakes:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, and oil.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour in the egg mixture and stir just until dry ingredients are moist. If batter is too thick, add regular milk 2 tablespoons at a time until batter reaches desired consistency.
  • Heat a nonstick griddle to 350 degrees. Pour pancake batter by ¼ cup fulls onto hot griddle. Flip the pancakes over when bubbles begin to form on the surface.
  • Serve pancakes with homemade orange syrup.
