It's school vacation week, and I was in an exceptionally good mood on Saturday morning. I asked my husband if he'd like some homemade pancakes - ah, such a silly question! Of course the answer was "yes" LOL!!!
What I like about the cranberries is the extra texture they bring to the pancakes. The orange flavor is subtle, and the buttermilk seems to make the pancakes melt in your mouth moist.
My husband said that "these are cookbook delicious!" Wow, now that's a compliment! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 1/4 cup of butter milk plus 2 tablespoons
1/2 cup of dried cranberries (or more if you like)
1 tsp. of orange rind (or more if you like)
Maple syrup (warm)
Mix flour, baking powder and salt, add buttermilk and egg, then mix ingredients together until nice and smooth, add cranberries and orange rind, and mix again.
In a hot skillet add your favorite oil or butter. I used butter flavored olive oil (that's another post). Using a 1/4 measuring cup, drop batter in and cook on one side until bubbles start to appear, flip and cook on the other side.
Serve with warm maple syrup and enjoy!
These pancakes are on the thick side (which I like), if you like thinner pancakes add more buttermilk.
