Regular followers of Rock Recipes knew this was bound to happen. My ongoing love affair with the flavour combination of chocolate and orange continues with these amazing weekend brunch pancakes.

When I began making flavoured homemade syrups to serve with pancakes, an orange version was one of the first ideas that came into my head. The little splash of vanilla at the end gives it just a little extra floral flavour boost too.

Even without the orange syrup, these are great chocolate chip pancakes that any kid would love. My kids have been eating them their whole lives. They have long taken over the pancake making duties in this household.

Ingredients
For the orange syrup
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • zest of one orange chopped in strips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the pancakes
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 cups chocolate chips approximately
Instructions
To prepare  the pancakes
  1. Sift together the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
  2. Whisk together the egg, vanilla extract, buttermilk and melted butter.
  3. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and whisk together just until combined. Do not over mix. Don't worry about small lumps. The batter will be thick.
  4. Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour batter onto a lightly greased griddle on medium heat; it's best to cook these slowly. You may need to spread the batter out a little with the back of a spoon but this is usually not necessary.
  5. Sprinkle on some chocolate chips before flipping. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until the centre is fully cooked.
To make the Orange Infused Syrup.
  1. In a small saucepan bring the water, sugar, corn syrup to a slow simmer.
  2. Add the strips of orange zest.
  3. Continue to cook at a slow simmer until the mixture reaches 230 degrees F on a candy or meat thermometer, about 7 minutes.

  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Allow the syrup to cool to almost room temperature before serving over the pancakes. You can remove the candied orange zest and use it to garnish the pancakes.
