A decadent pancake dessert served with rich orange butter rum sauce.

Ingredients – PANCAKES

  • 2 1/2 cups flour

  • 1 lt water

  • 2 eggs

  • 5 ml salt

  • 5 ml baking powder

  • 100 ml vegetable cooking oil

  • 5 ml vinegar

  • 200 ml fresh orange

  • 100 ml butter

  • 50 ml rum (Spice Gold)

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar.


  • Mix all the ingredients together until a smooth mixture forms.
  • To get the right thickness, heat a pan over moderate heat. Wipe the pan with an oiled kitchen towel. Repeat this between every pancake to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  • Ladle a small amount of mixture in your pan, tilting and moving your pan around to get an even layer. Pour excess batter into a jug. Return your pan to the heat. Cook for about 30 seconds until the pancake forms bubbles in the middle. Flip it over. Cook until it is loose in the pan. Transfer to a plate. Keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • In a saucepan, heat the butter. Add all the other ingredients. Bring to boil.
  • Optional: Add a spoon fresh unsweetened cream.
  • When ready to serve, drizzle the sauce over the pancakes.
