Orange-Blueberry Pancake – Gluten Free

Refreshing pancake with an incredible texture and taste…

I think I am turning into a pancakaholic. Lately, I’ve been making pancakes every weekend, trying out different flavors and adding different fruits to the batter. Here are some of the pancakes that I’ve tried over the years.

Unlike other pancakes that I’d made, this pancake made me feel refreshed. The addition of orange made all the difference. Also, the texture of this pancake is amazing, so soft and fluffy.
