Orange Buttermilk Pancakes-light and fluffy with a hint of orange served with whipped orange honey butter recipe at TidyMom.net

Originally I got up  recently and was going to make a big stack of buttermilk pancakes for sunday breakfast.  I got in the kitchen, pulled out the skillet and all the ingredients when suddenly I wasn’t feeling it, I wanted pancakes with a fresh twist.

These Orange Buttermilk Pancakes are light and fluffy and oh so delicious! We all loved them and have even polished off the extra orange pancakes I put in the freezer! You can definitely eat them as-is but I highly recommend smearing them with a little whipped Orange Honey Butter and a drizzle of maple syrup! These just might be one of my favorite pancakes yet……….next to pumpkin pancakes.

Orange Buttermilk Pancakes would be perfect for an Easter or Spring breakfast or brunch.

TIP: The secret to fluffy pancakes is to make sure the batter remains a little bit lumpy. Too much stirring will create a tough pancake.

  2. Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring just until moist; let stand 15 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top. Cook until the second side is golden brown

if you don't have buttermilk, you can add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar or lemon juice to 3/4 cup milk. Stir and let stand 5-10 minutes. Use curdled milk in recipe.
