Warm Cinnamon Pancakes with Cranberry Syrup

Fall Pancakes.  Noted in Nashville.Big D’s Warm Cinnamon Pancakes with Sweet Cranberry Syrup

You probably have your Thanksgiving meal all planned.  I’ll bet you’ve had it planned for weeks.  Your bird is basted, your stuffing is stuffed, your rolls are rising, and your pies are pumpkin-y.  You’ve taken care of everything.  Dinner is going to be terrific.

But what are you going to have for breakfast?!?

This is my mom’s pancake recipe with a couple of tweaks from Big D.  This recipe makes the fluffiest, softest pancakes I’ve ever had, using ingredients you’re sure to have in your kitchen – especially this week.

We don’t usually eat cranberries.  Big D’s palate is sensitive to bitter and tart flavors.  He has discovered the secrets to a sweet and pleasing syrup with lots of cranberry flavor.  But it won’t leave you with the shivers.

Cranberry Syrup:

  • 1 Cup Fresh Cranberries
  • 2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup Water
  • 1/8 tsp. Lemon Extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar

  1. I’m not a cranberry fan, but the pancakes themselves look delicious. I’ve copied and pasted the recipe for future use. It’s been a while since I’ve made pancakes. Definitely time for some flapjacks!

    • Ha, it’s something my hubby just felt like trying out . . . and it’s really good. Smooth, sweet, not at all tart.

      Thank you so much for the comment about my header picture. I am definitely not a photographer, but I am learning a lot as I go. Thanks for stopping by!
