Cranberry Orange Pancakes

Can there ever be too many pancake recipes?  I personally don’t believe so.  There is a rule at my house that plain pancakes are no longer allowed; the kids always want fruit, chocolate chips, raisins or even just food coloring to keep things interesting.  The bonus of this particular recipe is the smell of oranges and cranberry will make your house smell like fall.

  • 1 cups cranberries
  • 0.25 cups sugar
  • 1.5 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 medium egg
  • 0.75 cups orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cups milk
  • nonstick cooking spray


In a bowl, mix together cranberries and sugar.  Set aside for 5 minutes.  Heat a skillet over medium high heat; spray with nonstick cooking spray.  In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, and baking powder.  In another bowl, combine eggs, orange juice, oil, and milk.  Stir well.  Slowly pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir to combine.  Add water if consistency is too thick.  Fold in cranberry/sugar mixture.  Pour 1/4 cup of batter on skillet and cook until bubbles begin to form in batter.  Flip pancake and cook another 2-3 minutes, until golden brown on both sides.  Repeat until all batter is cooked.

Prepare pancakes as directed above.  After cooking, place pancakes on a baking sheet and flash freeze.  After pancakes are frozen, place in gallon freezer bags, label and freeze.  To serve: reheat in microwave for 1 minute.

    These were so good and easy! On the second batch already. I better make a bigger batch this time while fresh cranberries are still easy to find.
