This recipe couldn't be simpler! Just simmer grapefruit slices in maple syrup for a delicious, rosy compote to serve over waffles, French toast, crepes--or these subtly orange-flavored pancakes.


    Grapefruit Syrup
  • 2 medium grapefruits, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup
  • Pancakes
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur or orange juice


  1. Grapefruit Syrup In a medium saucepan combine grapefruit sections and maple syrup. Cook over medium heat just until heated through. Set aside; keep warm.
  2. Pancakes In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk together egg, milk, oil, and, if desired, orange liqueur. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
  3. Pancakes For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Spread batter if necessary. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown; turn over when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Keep warm in a 300 degrees F oven while preparing remaining pancakes.
  4. Pancakes Serve pancakes topped with warm Grapefruit Syrup.


  • The Grapefruit Syrup makes a great topper for waffles.
