Orange Poppyseed Pancakes

Orange Poppyseed Pancakes 4

Breakfast is my favorite meal and my happy spot.

I don’t believe in eating breakfast types of foods only for breakfast.  It’s 100% OK to have eggs or a big bowl of oatmeal for dinner.  After all, it’s food!

I have worked on perfecting the base of this recipe for soooo long.  I can’t tell you how many pancakes my family had to eat over the past few months.  Good thing you can’t really mess up a pancake…or maybe they were just being nice!

I really wanted to create a recipe that was healthy and sugar-free, so it was just about tweaking the perfect amount of oats to liquid.  Doesn’t sound too difficult, but it took a few times.  We will keep it at that.

I grew up on “Baba’s pancakes” which are exactly like crepes.  As kids, we would fill them with jelly or Log Cabin syrup and devour them.  This was a staple and a wonderful memory from my childhood.  Do people still eat Log Cabin?  After marrying a Canadian and tasting premium 100% maple syrup, I can never turn back.

I have asked my Baba many times how to make the pancakes, but she can’t give me an exact recipe because she just “knows” how much she needs to each ingredient.  But it’s not just the batter that needs to be perfect…so does the heat of the pan.  There is a true art to creating these masterpieces.  Someday, I will get it!

And while I do love the thin pancakes, a fluffy pancake is also to die for.  The best pancake I ever had was in Pittsburgh, PA at the Dor-Stop Restaurant.  Words cannot even describe these pancakes.  They must of had magic sprinkled all over them because nothing compares.  When I was pregnant, I would dream about them.  And cereal.  You see, I am a breakfast girl.

But ya know what?  These pancakes would give any pancake a run for their money.  The best part about these pancakes is that they are healthy.  No junk, just real ingredients and the orange zest gives it just the right amount of citrus love.  Change it up with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, pumpkin, apple, chocolate chips, or whatever your heart desires. They are damn good.

So go ahead….make a batch.  I’m sure they will become a staple in your house.

Enjoy!
