Orange Oatmeal Pancakes

IMG_4781Hello friends– Quiet Sunday afternoon here, a stack of after church pancakes, sunshine and a soft breeze coming in the back door, a good book waiting on the coffee table. And plans to join friends for a Bach Cantata this evening.  I’d call that a just about perfect Sunday.

But let’s get back to the pancakes. They were fluffy and light with a decidedly orange-y flavor.  Just right with grilled slices of turkey ham and a jug of maple syrup.  I’d recommend them if you have a lazy Sunday ahead.

ORANGE OATMEAL PANCAKES
1 orange
1 cup flour
3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal*
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tab. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup orange juice from the orange
3 tab. canola oil

Grate all the orange peel off of the orange and then slice it and squeeze out all the juice (about 1/2 cup).  Mix together the flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Then stir in the egg, milk, orange juice, orange peel and oil.

Pour onto a griddle sprayed with cooking spray– on medium heat.  Cook and flip to brown both sides nicely.  Makes about 12 medium tender  pancakes.

*I used whole oats for more texture, but quick oats are just fine too.
