These are delish, Trish! Sorry, must be my sugar buzz talking there. My husband ate the orange, so I used orange marmalade & orange extract, which worked excellently and saved me work! I also added ground flax seed because I add it to pretty much everything, but hello, chocolate and orange--so tasty. Today I learned that I do not make pancakes with buttermilk enough. It makes them so light and fluffy. How can I go back to pancakes sans buttermilk? I don't think I can. To close, ::opera singing & dramatic gesture:: Yuuuuuum!
