Orange Buttermilk Pancakes

Howdy folks!! It’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb, back to share another of my favorite recipes with you! Remember when I shared the recipe for those amazing Vanilla Coconut Muddy Buddies and I mentioned that I never ate breakfast growing up? Well now that I eat breakfast and totally love it, I have tried many breakfast recipes and found a particular passion for . . . PANCAKES!

Orange Buttermilk Pancakes

Especially the decadent kind. Like White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Pancakes. And Chocolate Chip Brownie Batter Pancakes.

Now that I think about it, my pancake obsession may just be an excuse to eat cake for breakfast…

Orange Buttermilk Pancakes

These Orange Buttermilk Pancakes are light and fluffy and soooooo yummy! I loved them, the husband loved them, and I’m thinking about making them again already! You can definitely eat them as-is but I highly recommend drizzling some gooey fruity syrup like blueberry or boysenberry! Sleep in and then make these speedy pancakes this weekend for a fantastic breakfast in 15 minutes flat! You can’t beat that!!

  1. These pancakes were amazing! I added chocolate chips to them and they tasted just like those delicious orange chocolates.
