Ingredients

  • SYRUP:
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • PANCAKES:
  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, bring the cranberries, orange juice and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Cool slightly. With a slotted spoon, remove 1/4 cup cranberries; set aside.
  • 2. In a blender, process cranberry mixture until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in maple syrup and reserved cranberries. Keep warm.
