Canadian Maple Walnut Pancakes

This is the first Canadian recipe for this month's "Cook Around the Globe" event. I don't often make a special breakfast treat, but this recipe sounded too good not to be tried out. I really liked the addition of the orange zest in the sauce; and I love the combination of maple syrup and walnuts. HubbyGrouch thought the orange was a bit too overwhelming for his taste. Well, I'll just serve him less sauce next time ;-)


   

Ingredients:
pancakes
3 eggs
200 ml milk
100 ml water
200 g all-purpose flour
1 dash salt
1 tbsp sugar

filling
2 tbsp unsalted butter
80 ml maple sirup
50-75 g chopped walnuts
grated zest from 1 orange

butter or oil for frying

For the pancake batter, mix all ingredients together until smooth. Let rest in the fridge for 1 hour. For the filling, melt butter in a small sauce pan over low heat. Add maple syrup, nuts, and orange zest. Keep warm on very low heat. Heat a little butter or oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in about 100 ml batter for a 25 cm (10") diameter pancake or about 70 ml for a 17.5 cm (7") pancake. Bake for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Place 2 tbsp filling on the pancake, roll up. Serve for breakfast or as dessert with vanilla ice cream. (Makes 6   25 cm pancakes or 8    17.5 cm pancakes.)
