I’m not a professional chef or even that fantastic of a cook, but I like to share recipes that make my toddler happy. I know how hard it can be sometimes to get them to eat and have found luck in trying other people’s suggestions…So, here’s mine!
My little one loves pancakes, because they’re easy for her to eat, but I don’t like her to have all the sugar that’s in maple syrup. So, I try to flavor-up the pancakes to make them fun and healthier to eat. She usually eats blueberry with applesauce, but I was all out of blueberries the other day. I did, however, have concentrated orange juice in the freezer, so decided to whip these up. She loved them! The proof is in the picture!
Keep your toddler happy with these flavorful fruity pancakes.
Whisk together all of the dry ingredients and put aside.
Put the concentrated orange juice into a measuring cup. Add milk until it measures 1 cup. You can add more or less depending on the batter consistency you prefer.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, butter, milk and orange juice.
Whisk in the dry ingredients until the batter is well-mixed.
Grease a medium sized frying pan with vegetable oil and heat over medium heat. You want to make sure you give the pan ample time to heat up or the pancakes won't fry thoroughly.
Spoon out batter into the pan until your pancakes are about 3" wide. These pancakes will be fluffy and making them too thick will leave uncooked batter in the middle. You may also want to whisk the batter between batches, because the orange juice likes to separate and create bubbles. You know they're done when they're a golden brown.
Serve plain with your favorite breakfast side, or with applesauce or syrup.
