- Drain the can of Princes Mandarin Segments, reserving the juice. Set aside.
- Beat together the flour, salt, eggs and milk with a wire whisk or stick blender to make a smooth batter.
- Heat a large non-stick frying pan and add a few drops of oil. Pour in a quarter of the batter, tilting the pan so that the batter flows over the surface. Cook over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes until set, then flip over to cook the other side. Make 4 pancakes in total. Fold into quarters and keep them in a warm place.
- Put the reserved orange juice into the frying pan with the sugar and butter. Heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes, until reduced and syrupy. Add the Cointreau or brandy (if using) and heat for a few moments.
- Put the folded pancakes into the frying pan and spoon over the sauce. Add the mandarins and cook over a low heat for 1-2 minutes to gently warm though.
