Orange Whole Wheat Pancakes

When we lived in Ohio, there was this little hole-in-the-wall diner that we would visit for their pancakes.  They made everything fresh and from scratch in their kitchen and our favorite flavor of theirs was an orange whole wheat pancake.  When we moved, tried as we might, we still have not found a little place that serves great pancakes like we miss.  So I set out to make a version myself.

I found it.  And we're happy.

Also, have you ever gone to make pancakes and realized you’re out of milk?  I have, and let me tell you, this recipe changed everything!  Now, it doesn't matter if I have milk in the house or not, I'll still make these because we all love them that much.
