Orange Scotch Pancakes

9. Orange Scotch PancakesPin


Ready for the second pancake after the Wholewheat Oats ones? πŸ™‚


My craziness for cookbooks knows no bounds, just like how I love to collect props. How much ever I try myself not to, I still keep adding on. Most of the time, I don’t buy them physically, I get them online and it feels like I am getting myself a gift each time I get one through the post! πŸ˜‰ One such book I landed up with during one of my browsing was the beautiful looking “Mary Berry’s Simple Cakes“. I don’t think Mary Berry needs any introduction. As a cookbook author in her own right and the judge of the “Great British Bake-Off” since its inception, she has a name of her own. I had always heard of the show but since I never had BBC at home, I never watched it till the last time winner was declared and it had become such a rage on FB. Then I watched the final episode on You Tube. Baking under pressure is not easy, even if they give the recipe in your hand, right? πŸ™‚

OK, so coming back to the book – just like it’s name it had some beautiful and simple bakes plus other recipes with simple pictures and step-by-step. How much I love books like that, that show each and every recipe in it! πŸ˜€ After going through the whole book, I thought instead of literally folding each and every page to try, I would leave the book alone! Hehe… However, my eyes were fixated on this recipe – you can see above how beautiful it looked in the book! Each time I looked into my fridge, the oranges that I reserved to make this recipe kept staring at me, so one fine Saturday, when my mood was just right, I went ahead and made it. I had anticipated that I would not have any takers for this pancake, however I was surprised at how HD and kids loved it and ate up all that was kept in front of them. Thank God I had already eaten a couple of them hot from the pan! πŸ˜‰


PST… A special thanks to SandhyaΒ – if you haven’t, then check out her lovely blog for some breathtaking photography! –Β who asked me to click a picture from the book when I make a recipe from it. I would have never thought of a shot like the one above, you can see I even tried to copy the styling as well. πŸ™‚

  1. Lovely shots! and never knew we could make pancakes with oranges! must be zesty and tangy and sweet.. add some more sugar.. and top it with cream yum! Good try on replicating the style too.. some honey in the spoon and some rinds would have made it outstanding. whatever it is.. thank you so much for sharing the recipe! About Bake-off – me too just heard it this last time.. but never saw even one episode. Now what are you sharing tomorrow! this is so interesting! πŸ™‚

      Hehe… If I use the honey, the kids wouldn’t eat it and then I ran out of oranges that time, so no orange rind! πŸ˜€ Thank you so much Fami…

  5. Rafeeda I too have so many cook books and sometimes its so difficult to control myself, I want to buy another one. I use to bake a simple Mary Berry chocolate cake when I started baking. Love her recipes. Love your pancakes too. And with orange flavour, its just too tempting.
