Winter Cooking

I love food! And being cooped up inside all winter is an excellent excuse to practice cooking skills and have fun creating delicious and fun treats. I came across an excellent recipe from Canadian Parents that can be a fun challenge whether you are 5 years old or 45 years old.

Orange Pancakes

• 2 cups flour
• 1 tsp salt
• 2 tsps baking soda
• 1/4 cup Sugar
• 2 Eggs
• 1 3/4 cups Orange Juice
• 1/4 cup Butter, melted

For the Orange Syrup
• 1/2 cup Butter, melted
• 3 tbsps Cornstarch
• 2/3 cup Sugar
• 1 oz Orange Zest
• 1 pt Orange Juice

Mix dry ingredients. Beat eggs, and then add orange juice & butter. Mix well. Add to dry ingredients. Spoon onto hot greased griddle. When bubbles form on surface, flip. Cook until browned on both sides. Serve with Orange Syrup (recipe below).

For the Orange Syrup
Melt the butter with the cornstarch for 1 minute. Cool. Heat juice and add. Stir until thickened. Add sugar. Bring to boil. Simmer 5 min. Add maple syrup to taste.
