Before you ask, I have no idea how these pancakes got their name, but I do know that they veer off from the average pancake with the addition of orange and lemon. Doesn't that sound scrumptious!

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 c
all purpose flour
1 pinch
salt
2
eggs, beaten
1 1/4 c
milk
2 Tbsp
shortening
1/3 c
butter
1/2 c
caster (superfine) sugar
grated rind and juice of 3 large oranges
grated rind and juice of 2 large lemons
2 Tbsp
drambuie

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt and make a well in the center. Stir in the beaten eggs and half the milk. Beat until batter is smooth and then add the remaining milk.
2
Melt some of the shortening in an 8-inch skillet and pour in enough batter to cover the pan. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface; turn and cook other side. Remove to a tea towel or paper towels and keep warm. Use the rest of the batter the same way.
3
Melt the butter in a separate skillet. Stir in the sugar and cook for about one minute. Then add the grated rind and juice of the lemons and oranges, and bring to a boil. Add the Drambuie; simmer for about 3 minutes.
4
Place the warm pancakes on serving plates and spoon the hot sauce over the top.
