Hint-of-Orange Pancakes with Grapefruit Syrup
In a medium saucepan combine grapefruit sections and maple syrup. Cook over medium heat just until heated through. Set aside; keep warm.Advertisement
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).
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°F oven while preparing remaining pancakes.
Serve pancakes topped with warm Grapefruit Syrup.
The Grapefruit Syrup makes a great topper for waffles.
