Orange Cinnamon Cupcakes – Valentine’s Edition

Clicked with Fujifilm X20

Fussy cooking and me – NOT A GOOD COMBINATION!

I was on a look out for a simple recipe that both looks appealing and tastes decadent to serve up your man (or Family, or Friends) on Valentine’s Day. Pancakes get posh-ed up with the unusual combinations that I never thought would work wonderfully in the batter as well as garnishes. Read up the recipe and instructions to get yourself a bite of heaven!

This makes 4 big pancakes and 8-10 small ones

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  •  3 ½  teaspoons baking powder
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  •  3 ½ tablespoon white sugar
  •  1 ¼ cups milk
  •  1 egg
  •  3 tablespoons oil, melted
  • 1 large orange zest
  • ¾ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon each of cinnamon and sugar combined

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk, egg and oil and mix until smooth. Add the orange zest, cinnamon and sugar and combine well.

Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

For the toppings take a few slices of sweet orange and dip it in the cinnamon sugar mixture to top the pancake. Pour the remaining cinnamon sugar combination over the top as garnish. Take a spoon and some Nutella at room temperature and swirl it around to form a heart. Top the heart with white sugar for a little bit of drama and show some love!

Bon Appetite!

  4. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written

    an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More and more people must read this and understand this
    side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular
    since you definitely have the gift.
