Citrus Pancakes

I love pancakes! They are the one food that I can eat more of than my husband! Okay, well pancakes and waffles. For some reason, they balloon up in his stomach and he can't eat a ton of them. So, I end up looking like a pig on days where we have pancakes or waffles. :)

These pancakes were fantastic! I loved the tang of the citrus in both the pancakes and the syrup. My three year old gobbled them up, too! What a fun variation! Loved them!

Citrus Pancakes
Recipe from Sophistimom

1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 egg
1 egg yolk
zest of 1 lime
zest of 1 orange
zest of 1 lemon
citrus syrup (recipe follows)
whipped cream (optional)

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Measure out milk in a glass measuring cup, and whisk in eggs, butter and zests. Pour into dry ingredients and whisk until just incorporated, but still lumpy.

Grease a nonstick griddle set to medium with a teaspoon of butter. Spoon out batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto the griddle and cook until small bubbles form on the batter but do not break. Flip pancakes and and cook for 30 more seconds. Place all finished pancakes in a warm oven until ready to serve.

Serve with citrus syrup and whipped cream.

Citrus syrup

1/2 cup pure maple syrup
juice of 1 lime
juice of 1 orange
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Whisk all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
