Another unusual combination of flavours Hemulen. When I read the title I imagined the shallots would be caramelised - to make a sort of onion marmalade with orange zest to top the pancakes. However, you surprised me by adding them raw to the pancake mix - and what is more, this is a sweet pancake. I'm trying to imagine how the shallot tastes in the final pancake... the jury's out at the moment! You certainly test my culinary imagination.

Do the shallots give a slightly spicy tang?

Yes, of course the taste is a bit sharp but grated shallot cooks fast. The taste was very pleasing and mild - like a combination of all ingredients/servings of a hotel breakfast buffet :roflmao:. I could have added a crumbled piece of bacon and a teaspoon of instant coffee to complete the combo.
