All pancakes are delicious pancakes, but there’s something about delightfully fresh and warm about these orange cardamom pancakes
Cardamom is an amazing spice. It transforms any dish you put it into, sweet or savory. It’s one of a few spices that I tend to go through by what seems like the fistful. It gives food such a deep, warm, and earth flavor. You couple that with the fresh brightness of orange, and you have a match made in heaven. These orange cardamom pancakes are just that.
I’m not a huge fan of American sweets, syrups being one of them. They tend to be overly saccharine and leave me sugared out within 2 bites. But the right maple syrup on pancakes is heaven on a dish. What I love most about these pancakes is the slight complexity of flavors. You have that yummy breadiness of a pancake. The initial brightness of the citrus, and then the warmth of the cardamom. And like all breakfast recipes should be, it’s easy to make. There’s a saying – nothing kills your appetite like cooking a large meal. That’s exactly how I feel about arduous breakfast recipes. I like simple breakfasts like Shakshouka, Desi Scramble, or even a bowl of cereal. But I will say these orange cardamom pancakes really do add a lovely spin on an old favorite.
No real pitfalls to this recipe other than over mixing the batter. You want to mix it till it’s just smooth. The more you mix it the stiffer and drier your pancakes will turn out. Also, always make sure you’re skillet is evenly greased and that you watch your heat settings, other wise you’ll end up with burnt pancakes or fried pancakes.
