    Pancakes hold a very special place in my heart. They’re what I make my boyfriend every weekend (and by weekend I mean Tuesday/Wednesday, because he’s a tattoo artist so lol what’s a normal weekend), after he worked hard all week and finally has a chance to relax. Making him breakfast is one of my favorite things in the world.

    He’s usually a fan of plain, buttery pancakes, but I wanted to make something different this weekend, and since you guys know how obsessed I am with blood oranges, it was time for blood orange pancakes. It just had to be done.

    These pancakes are so light and fluffy, with a tart citrus kick and rich dark chocolate to balance it all out. They’re so good, I definitely snuck one off the skillet while I was making them and ate it in two bites. And I definitely burned my mouth a little bit, but it was definitely worth it.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
    • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
    • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
    • pinch of salt
    • 1 1/4 cups nondairy milk
    • juice and zest of 1 large blood orange
    • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

    Instructions

    • Sift together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt).
    • Add the wet ingredients (oil, milk, orange juice, and orange zest) and mix well.
    • Fold in the chocolate chips.
    • Let the pancake batter sit for 5-7 minutes. This allows the batter time to rest and also allows the baking powder to start working, which leads to the fluffiest pancakes!
    • Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then add a Tbsp. of butter to the hot pan.
    • Scoop the pancake batter onto the buttered pan, and cook until golden brown.

    I’m obsessed with blood oranges. Literally obsessed. It’s officially blood orange season and I’ve been on the hunt for them for close to a month now, checking pretty much every grocery store in California, and I FINALLY found some this week! I’m so happy. I’m kind of shocked that any of these oranges lasted long enough for me to bake with them, but here we are.

    This is my favorite citrus recipe, which is awesome as a cake but somehow even better as donuts. I usually make it with oranges or lemons, but I had to make it with blood oranges because I knew it would be over the top delicious. And it is. Please don’t let the olive oil scare you: it doesn’t make the donuts greasy at all, it makes the donuts super moist and gives it a great crumb structure.

    PS look at that glaze, that color is everything.

    Ingredients

    Olive Oil Donuts

    • 1 cup nondairy milk
    • 1 Tbsp. blood orange zest
    • 1 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed blood orange juice
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/3 cup olive oil
    • 2 cups minus 4 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
    • 4 Tbsp. cornstarch
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp. salt

    Blood Orange Glaze

    • 1 Tbsp. blood orange zest
    • 2 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed blood orange juice
    • 1 cup powdered sugar

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
    • Mix together the nondairy milk, 1 Tbsp. orange juice, 1 Tbsp. zest, granulated sugar, and olive oil.
    • Sift together the dry ingredients (flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt).
    • Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold gently, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix!
    • Scoop the batter into a greased donut mold, filling about 3/4 of the way full.
    • Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown on the edges.
    • For the glaze, combine the remaining 2 Tbsp. orange juice with 1 cup sifted powdered sugar. Mix well until completely smooth, then drizzle over the cooled donuts. You can also dip the donuts in the glaze, but be careful because the glaze sets very quickly so it could rip the donuts!
    • Garnish with a small pinch of orange zest.
