Clementine Weekend - Celementine Pancakes

Still have tons of clementines? Not to worry. I am devoting this weekend to recipes that use clementines. (Have your own recipe? Send my way and I will post on Sunday! erika8cookies@gmail.com)

Easiest way to use your clementines is by using the zest in recipes.
First up (and easiest recipe of the weekend) - Clementine Pancakes.
Use your favorite pancake recipe or mix and use water, not milk. Add zest from a whole clementine (or less according to taste) into the batter. Bake as usual. Add syrup or powdered sugar.

If you want a stronger taste, substitute some of the juice from the clementine for the water.
Bake well and prosper!

  1. NO way!! These look SO good!
    I am in LOVE with Clementines and have been trying to think of some new ways to cook with them!

    Can and I beg and plead that you come share this recipe at a weekly event I host titled Seasonal Sundays. As you can imagine they fit the theme extremely well.

    Awesome blog! So happy I found it!
    Happy Weekend :)
