Can we have a little chat about Hunger Games for a short second?

1.I’m slightly addicted (and have ultimately dragged Chrissy down with me)

2.If I was a participant in the Hunger Games, I would want a plate of these pancakes attached to a tiny parachute and delivered to me in the arena.

Let’s be honest, they would probably be more useful to me than a sword or a poisonous dart.

For those of you who have yet to read this insanely addicting series of books, just imagine being stranded on a deserted island with nothing but a slew of people out to kill you.

What would you want delivered to you? You better answer with “a last meal” because unless you’re a trained ninja, your chances of survival are slim to say the least.


Since deciding that these would be my last meal, I’ve determined that I might also be addicted to pancakes.

These contain a hearty dose of fresh OJ instead of milk and they make for the most flavorful pancake of your life.

Especially if you use fresh squeezed orange juice…serious winners. My wrist was feeling the effects after all that squeezing, but it was well worth it.


Once you bite into these guys, you will get a burst of sweet orange flavor that soon melts into a light fluffy pancake then leaves you with the tang of lingering orange zest.

Is OJ not your thang?? Then try our other pancake flavor combos – these or these!




Orange Juice Pancakes


2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons orange zest

1 3/4 cups fresh squeezed orange juice

1/4 cup butter, melted



Mix dry ingredients. Beat eggs, then add orange juice, zest & butter and mix to combine. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until a smooth mixture forms.

Pour about 1/3 cup of mix onto hot (greased with butter) griddle. When bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, flip. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Serve with a pad of butter and maple syrup.

  1. Great idea! I can imagine that pancakes with orange flavor taste just wonderful.

  2. This is brilliant. I love orange juice french toast, but it never crossed my mind to make orange pancakes – it’s a good thing I have LYK to enlighten me! And Hunger Games, yes serious addiction, ‘nough said!

  3. There’s a hunger games cookbook… Amazon told me such after I ordered the series and read it all in one weekend :) I think a HUNGER games cookbook is quite silly but it would be a fun thing to have!

  4. I just found your blog and I am in love–such a fresh writing style and delicious recipes! If I were in the Hunger Games I would want a pan of brownies and a jar of peanut butter parachuted to me…or of course, some pancakes like these :)
