Buttermilk Pancakes with Orange Zest

Winter weekend mornings are the perfect time to cozy up to a pancake breakfast. I can eat them without all the side fixings of eggs and {halal} sausages, as long as the pancakes are flavorful.

I love biting into something I can hear crunch, maybe because it then actually feels like the sound of food. I’m not sure what it is, but I enjoy it.
