Orange fun facts and recipe for Orange Pancakes

Navel oranges are named that because of the belly-button formation opposite the stem end. The bigger the navel in an orange, the sweeter it will be.

When is an orange green? When it's a Valencia! Sometimes warm weather causes the skin to regreen, or reabsorb chlorophyll, giving it a greenish color. But it will still taste great.

Eat oranges and stay young! Oranges are high in antioxidants, which neutralize the effects of free radicals, unstable oxygen molecules in your body, believed to cause aging and some diseases.
Moro oranges are also called blood oranges! But don't worry. That's just because the pulp is bright red. They're really a sweet treat.

After chocolate and vanilla, orange is the world's favorite flavor.

Christopher Columbus brought the first orange seeds and seedlings to the New World on his second voyage in 1493.

Orange Pancakes
Print Recipe Here

1.5+ cup of pancake mix
1/2 cup no-fat milk or water
1/2 cup orange juice
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon of orange extract
orange grind if you like
pam spray

Just mix up all the above to the consistency you like for thickness by adding more of the pancake mix - I like a really crepe style pancake so I can roll them and fill them with All Fruit and lemon juice or low salt fat-free pie fillings (Pet Cherry) and top them with the low or no-fat version of Cool Whip - This makes an awesome desert. The orange flavor combined with the spongy quality of the cakes due to the egg whites is really a wonderful treat.

You can adapt this recipe to French toast too. Just mix together the egg whites and the orange juice and orange extract, plus add some cinnimon. It is especially good when using a heavy whole grain breads, heavy breads or fruit bread that's gone stale.
