I thought that this was wonderful and was exactly what I was looking for. I live overseas where it isn't possible to get pancake syrup (or the common ingredients for making your own). I have been trying to find something yummy to put on pancakes using local ingredients. I used apple juice rather than orange juice. Also, I found that the topping wasn't as thick as I wanted so I added 1 tbsp of cornstarch (mixed with 1 tbsp of cold water) after the apples were softened and continued to cook the mixture uncovered until it thickened. Absolutely delicious!
This is exactly what I was looking for, to accompany my oatmeal pancakes. Truly a fantastic recipe, thank you so much! I had to tweak it because I didn't have any OJ, so I just used the juice from a can of peaches, but I'm sure the OJ is even better.
This was good, but very 'orangy' from the orange juice. I think I would try next time with apple juice? I also used half splenda and half sugar and it was still plenty sweet. I also did not have a need to add extra liquid, I actually had to turn the burner up higher to get some of the juice to evaporate.
It was good, but too liquidy. Needs less orange juice so it cooks down into a syrup.
