  • When selecting an orange for the zest, choose one that is firm and has a bright, even-colored skin.
  • For the best results, use a high-quality butter such as European-style butter.

  • Substitute almond milk for cow's milk for a vegan option. Almond milk is a great plant-based alternative to cow's milk and provides a delicious nutty flavor to the pancakes.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter for a dairy-free option. Coconut oil is a great dairy-free alternative to butter and provides a subtle hint of coconut flavor to the pancakes.

Lemon Pancakes Replace the orange zest with 1 tablespoon of lemon zest, grated, and replace the orange juice with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
