Blood Orange Pancakes with Hibiscus Syrup

 

I finally found blood oranges at my local grocery store. I have been looking for them the whole month of December. I really love seasonal fruits and vegetables since there is something special about them only being around for a little while at certain times. Blood oranges are one of those special fruits. They have a bitter-tart flavor, unlike the sweet-citrus flavor of a regular orange. What makes them appealing is their dark, deep maroon colored flesh. They make amazing cocktails and desserts, will share my blood orange margarita soon. I decided to try them out for breakfast/brunch and I have to say these pancakes are yummy.

 

I do have a pancake griddle and I wish I had used it. A pancake griddle or pancake pan makes the cooking process so much easier and quicker. Instead of making two pancakes at a time, you can make 6-8 pancakes. These specially designed pans make nicer shape pancakes and they stay warmer since waiting time is cut down. Next time, they will be prettier.

  1. Heat two cups of water just until it starts to boil. Remove from heat and steep teabags for 10 minutes.
