These pancakes are comforting and filling. Try adding chopped nuts or dried fruit for a special treat.
Big kids can measure the ingredients into a bowl, and small ones can stir to their heart's content (the recipe can't be ruined by too much stirring).
In a small bowl, mix the eggs with the oil.
In a medium-size bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients, then stir in enough orange juice to create a thick batter. Add chopped nuts or dried fruit, such as apricots, if desired.
Heat the butter in a large frying pan, then pour batter into the pan by quarter cupfuls. Cook until done, turning once. Makes 9 medium-size pancakes.
