Number of Servings: 5


    6 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
    1 cup Flour - Gold medal all purpose flour
    1 tsp Salt
    3 tsp Granulated Sugar
    1 tsp Vanilla Extract
    4 serving Orange essential oil (1 drop)
    .25 cup Butter, unsalted
    1 cup Milk, 2%, with added nonfat milk solids, without added vit A


Be sure to use regular size muffin tins. The large ones make the pancakes too dense. Don't overbake.


Preheat oven to 400.

In a blender, blend eggs, flour, salt, sugar and vanilla. Make sure the flour blends and doesn't leave lumps or stick to the sides. Leave cap off the blender for a minute or two to incorporate air. While incorporating air, melt butter; add milk to the butter to cool it down. With blender running on low, drizzle in butter/milk mixture. Add orange essential oil (preferred) or orange zest. A tablespoon of orange juice would be okay, but wouldn't have the aromatic orange scent. (It adds just a little to the overall flavor; it won't make it too orange-y.)

Grease regular-size muffin tins well (spray with Pam). I usually on spray the bottom. Fill muffin cups half or slightly less than half full (about 1/4 cup each). You should get 20-24 cups.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes until puffy and golden. Serve immediately.
