Method

  1. Tip the sugar into a microwaveable bowl and stir in 3 tbsp orange juice to dampen. Microwave on High for 3-4 mins until you have a bubbling caramel. Remove the bowl from the microwave (watch out – it will be very hot indeed), then add the rest of juice, zest and butter. Return to the microwave and blast for 1 min, stir, then cook for 1 more min until the caramel has dissolved into the juice and you have a syrupy sauce. Set aside.
  2. Heat pancakes in the microwave according to pack instructions. Serve each folded into quarters with sauce poured over, a spoonful of crème fraîche and orange wedges, if you like.

We tried this yesterday, and it was a great success. I whipped up some mascarpone cream with a little caster sugar and a good slosh of Grand Marnier, and this was the perfect accompaniment! Must remember this recipe for pancake day!

I followed the recipe and made an orange caramel sauce but I also made a lemon one to add variety for my guests - simply by substuting lemons and I am so glad I did. The orange sauce is delicious but rather sweet for my taste but the lemon one was simply fantastic, sweet with sour notes and a deeply intense flavour. I also used full fat greek yoghurt to accompany my pancakes - I know I know its not low fat but pancake day only comes round once a year! I made my pancakes in advance using a recipe from the site which is linked to this one and I made the best pancakes ever. Because I was catering for eight I made loads in advance and heated them up in the oven whilst we ate our main course - they didnt stick to each other and were, quite simply, delicious! I shall definitely make the lemon sauce again - to team up with a luscious steamed pudding and custard, yum yum!
