Orange Zest Pancakes

We recently had a flapjack Friday at the office and it inspired me to make a hearty breakfast for the family today before heading to an all day track meet event for Dexter's school. This is a mixed recipe of Aunt Jemima and MJ! Well, I realized I am out of flour but I found a box of Aunt Jemima pancake mix. I just picked some oranges from the backyard and I added some orange zest to the batter mixture and the pancakes were absolutely delicious with fresh slices of orange. Just add your favorite syrup!


2 cups of Aunt Jemima pancake mix
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 tbs vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon of orange zest
melted butter or vegetable oil spray for cooking

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and whip for about a minute. Do not over whip the batter or you'll have hard pancakes. It's okay if you see clumps in the batter. Heat a lightly buttered skillet on medium heat. With a small ladle or large spoon, scoop the batter onto the pan (about 4 inches diameter), and heat until the top begins to bubble or until you can flip the pancake without making a mess. Heat the other side until golden brown. Repeat Step 3 until the batter is used up.
