Baked Pancake with Orange Custard and Giveaway


This post may contain affiliate links.

Today’s spring breakfast recipe features another fresh citrus flavor. This time it’s orange. Sweet Florida orange juice is incorporated in the baked pancake with orange custard. It is similar to a Dutch Baby. Then you top the pancake with a homemade orange custard.  There is no need for syrup on these pancakes.  The custard is sweet enough for this pancake.

The custard itself is delicious on it’s own.  It would be divine to stuff into a cream puff. The custard also includes Florida orange juice along with orange zest. It is so good and well worth the extra effort to make it.

It’s so easy to brighten up an ordinary recipe just by adding one ingredient, like 100 percent Florida orange juice, for a simple fix that will delight your taste buds.

Get more out of the ingredients in your refrigerator by thinking outside of the carton and adding nutrient-rich orange juice to everyday dishes for a unique burst of flavor just like in this recipe and the recent recipe I shared for Pork Carnitas.

Florida orange juice wants to help two lucky RMK readers think out side the carton by providing a prize pack including: a $20 Williams-Sonoma gift card, Claire Robinson’s “5 Ingredient Fix” cookbook, and a measuring cup.

Units Scale
  • Orange Custard:
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Florida orange juice
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Zest of 1/2 Florida orange
  • 1 tsp butter

  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  6. Place butter in the skillet and heat in oven while it preheats until melted. Set aside.
  7. In a bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together.
  8. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, orange juice, and vanilla together until frothy.
  9. Whisk egg mixture into flour mixture, just until combined.
  10. Pour pancake into skillet and cook for 20 minutes until puffy and golden brown.
  11. Remove from oven. Cut into wedges and serve topped with prepared orange custard. Serves 4.
