7 Easy steps to fluffy Orange-flavored Pancakes.

Surprisingly, pancakes are also a kind of quick bread, hence the name pan-cakes. Once in a while I’ll wake up in the morning and just feel like having some pancakes. I especially love orange flavored fluffy pancakes. Here’s my recipe:

– 2/3 cup Milk
– 2 Tablespoons Sugar
– 1 cup Self-Rising Wheat flour
– 1 Egg
– 1/8 cup Margarine or Butter
– 1 Orange (Medium-sized)
– Orange rind
– Extra vegetable oil for pan.


1.) Combine flour and sugar in a separate bowl and set aside.
2.) Wash the orange and grate it for the rind and set aside in a plate. Then squeeze the orange for juice and set aside in a cup.
3.) Whisk the egg and margarine/butter in a large mixing bowl and then add the milk and orange juice; whisk until well blended.
4.) Slowly pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients as you whisk until there are no lumps in the batter. Add the rind and slowly fold until thoroughly blended.
5.) Heat a frying pan with some vegetable oil on medium heat.
6.) Pour not more than 3 spoonfuls of batter onto the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface.

Flip with a spatula, add a small amount of vegetable oil and cook until brown on either side.

7.) You can serve your fluffy delicious pancakes on a plate.


*If you don’t have self-rising flour; add 1/4 teaspoon of Baking powder.

If you don’t particularly want the orange flavor, you can make the pancake recipe above an omit the orange juice and rind. You can flavor with 1 teaspoon of Vanilla essence

  • Other variations of this recipe; you can add 1/4 cup of chocolate chips to make Chocolate chip pancakes – just fold them in at the end after your batter is ready.
