Use It Up: Marmalade Pancakes

Marmalade Pancakes | Savvy Eats

It only seems fitting to post these marmalade pancakes today, the week bridging February and March. After all, February is Using Your Preserves month on Savvy Eats, and March is going to be all about Breakfast for Dinner. These pancakes bridge the gap between the two!

Lately, I spend every Monday doing all the little things from my to-do list. I clean off my desk and then make a plan for the week, mapping out my recipe testing and writing sessions. I catch up on all the lingering emails from the previous week, and do all my little Savvy Eats-related maintenance tasks. I don’t typically do any recipe testing or photography on Mondays, because the goal is to knock as many things off the to-do list as possible (yesterday’s new record: 40 tasks done!).

But this week, I made an exception, just for these pancakes.  They were just too delicious not to make again.  They are fruity and fluffy.  I might even say they have a bit of a creamsicle flavor, thanks to the marmalade + white chocolate combo, but I suppose I’ve used that term quite a bit lately, haven’t I?

Let’s all take a break from the rushed weekday morning routine, and make some pancakes, shall we?

I’ll be honest – I’m not usually one for tequila. When it comes to mixed drinks, I typically go for some vodka- or rum-based.  But this marmalade-infused creamsicle margarita may have just won me over. I mean, orange + lime + blood orange marmalade? What’s not to like?

To give things a more creamsicle-like flavor, I shook in some vanilla extract and infused some coarse sea salt with vanilla bean before I salted the glass rims. It’s like a summery Dreamsicle in cocktail form.  Which let’s face it, is just a win all around.
