These were super fun to make!  (And pretty easy... especially if you just wanted to make them look like regular pancakes... but of course I HAD to make them look like the real things!)  

The best part is that the flavor was all done with the real fruit, so it really tasted like an apple or an orange!  (Not that fake candy flavor.)  

- Recipes-


Orange Pancakes:  


3/8 cup orange juice
1 tablespoons finely grated orange zest
3/8 cup buttermilk (I don't have this just laying around, so I added lemon juice to milk and let it sit for a few minutes... I've read that it's a good substitute!)  
1 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
1 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 cup granulated sugar
Orange food coloring (or a mix of red and yellow)


To make this batter just mix all the ingredient together and then add a little bit of orange food coloring.  I used Wilton's Icing Coloring red and yellow mixed together.  (This batter will naturally be a light orange color already, but I wanted it to be really really orange, so I added the coloring.)  

For the leaves and stems read the apple recipe.



Apple Pancakes:  


3/8 cup milk
1 small peeled, cored and grated apple
3/8 cup buttermilk (I don't have this just laying around, so I added lemon juice to milk and let it sit for a few minutes... I've read that it's a good substitute!)  
1 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
1 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 cup granulated sugar
Cinnamon to taste
Brown food coloring (or a mix of red and green, or a cocoa powder)

To make this batter mix all of the ingredients except for the cinnamon and apples.  

Take out a small amount of batter and set it aside in a small bowl (about 2 tablespoons).  This can be made brown by adding food coloring, or cocoa powder.  (I would normally have used cocoa powder, but I was really distracted and tired this morning, so I started adding red without thinking and had to save it by adding green!)  

Take the original batter and make it green.  (Still without apples or cinnamon!)  Take a few tablespoons of this batter and set it aside in a small bowl.  

Now, with the original batter that is now green, add the apples and cinnamon.  Finally!

Now... to make these pancakes!  You should have four types of batter, a lot of orange, a lot of apple, a small amount of green and a small amount of brown.  

Pour the orange and apple pancake batters like  normal pancakes.  (This amount of batter should be five pancakes of each flavor.)  Remember not to let these pancakes brown too much, especially on the first side because this will be the pretty and flat side!  

For the stems and leaves, I put the batter into small plastic bags and then cut the tips off.  For the stems just pipe the brown batter into a sort of rectangle that is 1"x1/4" and thinner at the top than the bottom.  You will need five of these for the apples, and then five brown dots for the orange stems.  For the leaves just pipe the green batter into leave shapes!  These pancakes are small enough that they don't really need to be flipped, so don't worry about it!

That's it!  Just place the pancake pieces on the plate and you're done!  A variation could be that if you want to pipe the stems and leaves onto the griddle first (overlapping a little bit) then you can pour the batter directly onto the griddle, and they will be a single pancake.  This might be a bit fancier, but in the end I think that I was happy with how they turned out!
