Blueberry Orange and Almond Pancakes with Orange Maple Glaze

These are excellent summer pancakes. They are delicious and totally have at least a serving of fruit, so I'm going to go ahead and call them healthy.


Full disclosure....I had the for lunch and the glaze seemed like it would be just a little bit too much...so I just had them with maple syrup.

Recipe:
Taken from: Joy the Baker Cookbook

For the pancakes:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 Tbs granulated sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tsp orange zest
Scant 1/4 tsp almond extract
3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen, I used fresh)

For the glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbs fresh orange juice
1 Tbs maple syrup

Directions:

1) Whisk together dry ingredients in large bowl.

2) Whisk together egg, buttermilk, orange juice and orange zest in a separate small bowl.

3) Combine all of the ingredients in the large bowl and fold in the blueberries.

4) Allow the batter to sit while you preheat the griddle to 350 degrees F. Spoon the batter over the hot griddle and allow to cook until bubbles are showing through the uncooked side. Flip and cook for about 5 minutes more or until done.
