Cranberry Orange Pancakes

Every Saturday and Sunday, my boyfriend and i feed on pancakes. We have spent many many weekends dressed in our pajamas cooking and trying new things to add to our pancake mixture. These are really delicious, slightly tart, slightly sweet but not too filling. In addition to being yummy, the cranberries add a completely new dimension to this recipe. They are full of antioxidants, tannins and great for the good health of the kidney/urinary tract.
So readers, one of you can make the coffee while the other warms up the syrup and butter to go with this flavorful fresh recipe.


1 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
1 medium egg
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp grated orange rind (avoid bitter white pith)
2 tbsp orange juice
6- 8 Coarsely chopped fresh or frozen cranberries


1. In a bowl, beat together the milk, 1 tbsp metled butter and egg. Set aside
2. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and orange rind and add to wet ingredients. Stir in

3. Grease a skillet lightly with butter and let it heat. Pour in about 1/3 cup pancake mixture.
4. Cook for about 1-2 minutes until bubble start forming on the top of the pancake.
