Orange Pancakes with Orange Spiced Syrup (Martha Stewart)

Originally was waffle, but I was in the mood of pancake so I made the recipe into pancakes instead. And no regret, it still yielded soft and fluffy ones :)

Btw, you notice the orange I used was rather darker in color. I used cara cara oranges from US, easily found nowadays in supermarkets. This is the first time I tried this kind of oranges, and I was amazed at the first cut to find the flesh was rather reddish, very similar to grapefruit, darker in color, in fact
I googled for some info about this orange and true enough, cara cara orange is a red flesh orange. Taste wise, it's really juicy and sweet. Give it a try while it's still in season :)


  1. Hi Alice, I love this healthy pancakes with orange spied syrup. Must be very delicious! The cara cara oranges look like grapefruits and I'm going to get some tomorrow.
    Thanks for linking to LTU - orange theme :)

  2. Yes I tried this variety of orange before and it is not too bad.

  3. Nice adaptation to pancakes, Alice! And the orange spiced syrup must be very orangy fragrant and yummy!
    Thanks for linking!

  4. Hi Alice,

    Based on my recent Singapore trip, I realise that eating cooked breakfast seems to be the latest in-thing in Singapore. Your MS pancakes with orange syrup looks heavenly.


  5. Your orange pancakes look really good!
