Your family will fall for these heart pancakes from Adrianna Adarme of A Cozy Kitchen. The touch of orange and chocolate morsels adds a twist on a brunch classic.


Make It

Step 1

Mix together the blood orange zest and sugar in a medium bowl, rubbing the two with your hands. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mix.

Step 2

Measure out the milk in a separate medium bowl. Whisk in the blood orange juice, egg and melted butter.

Step 3

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. The batter should have some small to medium lumps.

Step 4

Preheat your skillet over medium heat and brush with 1 teaspoon of butter. Lightly spray a heart-shaped ring mold with cooking spray. Place the mold onto the skillet and then using a 1/4-cup measure, scoop the batter into the mold, being sure it’s one even layer. Add 8 to 9 chocolate chips to each pancake, gently pressing them into the pancake.

Step 5

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until small bubbles form on the surface and then gently lift up the mold. Flip the pancake and reduce the heat to medium-low and cook on the opposite sides for about 1 minute, or until golden brown.

Step 6

Transfer the cooked pancakes to a baking sheet and place in a preheated 200° F oven to keep warm. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more butter to the skillet and re-greasing the mold when needed. Serve immediately.
