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.

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?

So on Friday morning, I started Googling “what to do with leftover fondue.”  I found plenty of suggestions: truffles, rocky road, chocolate sauce for ice cream.  But nothing was truly inspiring, until I read someone’s suggestion to fold it into the batter for baked goods. I decided I needed to mix some leftover chocolate fondue into pancake batter.
