I know what your thinking. Bran = healthy = tasteless. Well, that may be true for some recipes, but not this one. If you’ve never eaten Brancakes with Orange Syrup, your missing out. These brancakes have been a family favorite for generations. They are my boy’s favorite pancake. And my husband, who normally doesn’t care for pancakes, will eat them as an afternoon snack. My family calls them “Orange Pancakes.” And I love them served with a good serving of crispy bacon.

Here’s the recipe:

Brancakes with Orange Syrup

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbl. sugar
1 egg
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp. grated orange peel (optional)
1 cup wheat bran cereal

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and add egg & milk. Beat egg and milk and slowly incorporate flour mix, working your way to the outside of the bowl. Add bran cereal. If using bran flakes, crush the flakes before measuring and adding to the batter. Mix until combined. Batter will be lumpy. Allow to set a few minutes to soften bran if desired. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto preheated griddle. Cook until bubbles pop. Flip and cook until golden brown. Serve with Orange Syrup.

Orange Syrup

1 cup sugar
dash salt
1/2 tsp. grated orange peel (optional)
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup butter

Combine ingredients in saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until bubbly. Syrup will be a thin consistency.
