Fruity Pancake Deliciousness!

Cranberry Orange Pancakes!

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute for fewer calories)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • zest of small orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed (dried cranberries are acceptable, but will be much chewier in the pancakes- rehydrate them in enough hot water to cover and let sit for 30 minutes)
  1. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk together buttermilk, egg, butter, orange zest , and vanilla in a medium bowl.
  3. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture, and stir until just blended.
  4. Stir in cranberries.
  5. Pour 1/3 cup batter for each pancake onto a lightly greased hot griddle or nonstick skillet.
  6. Cook 2 to 4 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look dry and cooked; turn, and cook 1 minute or until lightly browned.
  7. Keep warm. Garnish with cranberries. Serve with warm maple syrup.

  1. Sounds delicious. Probably would be best if served as tiny little pancakes like Gram used to serve when you were just a kid : )
