I found this recipe in an old cookbook given to me by my mother-in-law. The light, delicate pancakes have a nice citrus flavor that the tangy orange sauce complements.

"Everyone loved these. They tasted great the way the recipe is written. I also tried using sugar free orange drink to decrease the amount of sugar for my diabetic mom, and they tasted great with the orange drink as well."
