Cranberry Pancakes with Orange Honey Maple Syrup

The combination of honey and maple syrup may be enough to give some people a toothache, but the tart burst of cranberry cuts through it like a hot knife through butter. The pancake is the perfect  neutral base for this classic flavour combination.

For the syrup;

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup honey

Juice and zest from 1/2 an orange

And warm them in a saucepan with the honey and maple syrup until you’re ready to serve

I use Aunt Jemima pancake mix, I like the fluffy cake texture. Feel free to make yours from scratch.

For the pancakes;

2 cups pancake mix

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries

A pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg – optional
