You tasted it here first— Carmen’s famous Orange Pecan Pancakes, topped with fresh-made from scratch Orange Butter.
Open today till 2, and Saturday & Sunday from 9-4. Start the New Year right!
We are always fascinated making butter– going from heavy cream (with a little salt and plenty of orange zest and juice) to whipped cream, to very heavy whipped cream, to grainy whipped cream, to a suddenly splashy mess as the whey separates and you have rich, golden butter.
You pack the butter into a ball and drain off the whey, and there you have it: fresh, sweet, orangey butter, rich with flavor. I can’t help but taste a pat or two, as eating what you’ve just made seems as natural as tasting whipped cream. Same difference, really, except for the whey.
