    No review, just a question. What exactly IS the "sparkling water" the recipe calls for. Is it Canada Dry?

    Too much work for pancakes. They were a little different but in the end they were just pancakes with an orange syrup.

    I agree with the first posted comment with regard to the amount of work - they do take a little extra. However, I thought they were worth it! These pancakes are SO light and fluffy, and with the orange scent in the pancake plus the sauce, they are also refreshing (which is very unique for a pancake). Usually pancakes are very filling and can leave you feeling over-stuffed / sleepy, but I thought these pancakes were the opposite, and esp. yummy on a rainy / cold day. The flavor will remind you of nice "fun in the sun" fare. I didn't change anything about the recipe and it worked out perfectly! When the recipe says that the batter will be "thick" prepare for it to look like a cookie batter. Don't panic! Once you add the other ingredients (i.e. the egg whites), it will turn out in the end like a regular pancake batter. Don't skip the bananas & serve with eggs & bacon for a restaurant quality breakfast at home - enjoy!!

    I would also agree, too much effort for average pancakes and I love to experiment with new recipes. Pancakes are too thick, but I prefer thinner ones. Sauce was good, a nice change from maple syrup. I added a dash of nutmeg to sliced bananas.

    These were very good. I doubled the orange sauce and didn't cook it down. I doubled the cornstarch. I also added fiori de sicilia flavoring and it was wonderful. Next time I will add fiori de sicilia flavoring to the pancakes also.
