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.
