Turn up the flavor at breakfast with these Blood Orange pancakes!
(If you don’t have time to make pancakes from scratch, just add MTO Blood Orange Olive Oil, cinnamon, and vanilla to packaged pancake mix.)
Servings- 4 medium pancakes
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons More Than Olives Blood Orange Olive Oil
plus more for the pan
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup milk, plus more if needed
- Maple syrup, or your favorite pancake topping
In a bowl, add the milk, egg, MTO Blood Orange Olive Oil, and mix well.
Add in the salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir together until just blended.
Add in the flour and baking powder and mix until combined. If the batter seems too thick, add in some more milk. You want a smooth, not too runny, batter. The less liquid you add, the lighter, fluffier, and taller your olive oil pancakes will be.
Heat a frying pan to medium and grease it with a little of the MTO Blood Olive Oil. Pour a ladleful of your batter into the pan and cook until you see small bubbles come and pop. Flip the pancake onto the other side and cook until golden on both sides.
Serve pancakes hot with syrup.
