  • Meanwhile peel and section orange over a small bowl. Squeeze any remaining juice from the membranes over the segments (about 2 tablespoons). Stir in honey, mint and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of orange peel. Set aside.

  • Spray a griddle or heavy skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Using the back of a spoon, spread batter into 3 to 4-inch pancakes. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown. Turn over when surfaces are bubbly and edges are slightly dry. To serve, top with orange mixture.
