Orange/Clementine yogurt pancakes

Posted by

Well, I have always loved citrus flavors in my desserts and breakfast. Oranges and clementines evoke tons of childhood memories, especially during winters. I love the taste and aroma of these fruits. Like me, you will love these mildly sweet and aromatic orange/clementine yogurt pancakes. 

I have memories of plucking clementines from orchards and enjoying them under the sun. Grandma would dry the peels, to be used later for flavoring. I have used orange blossom honey to sweeten these pancakes; you may replace it with regular honey. The orange blossom lends a mild aroma and makes them irresistible. A drop or two of orange blossom will also work. Just be mindful not to make it overpowering.

I served these soft pancakes with whipped greek yogurt. That makes them rich yet healthy. I made these last weekend, just before the school reopened. 

I hope you do enjoy some quality time over the breakfast table with your loved ones with these glorious pancakes to start the day.
