I hope your Christmas was wonderful. Mine was spent with family. Christmas morning is always at my brothers with my niece and nephews. I love seeing Christmas through their eyes. This week I have been reflecting on the past year and looking ahead. Have you heard of one word 2012? Last year I chose a word, it was fearless and became my theme for the year. I am pondering what this year’s will be.
I made this Cranberry Oven Pancake this week. I had a bag of cranberries in my refrigerator. I saw this picture and had the idea to somehow incorporate it into an oven pancake.
The sugar glazed cranberries have to soak in the maple syrup overnight so there is a little pre planning required. That can be a struggle for me sometimes.
Drain them and roll the cranberries into sugar and onto a baking sheet. Refrigerate for 1hour.
When it came out I topped it with the berries and sprinkled with powdered sugar. You can serve with maple syrup on the side.
I have been working on fun new project healthifying recipes. Can’t wait to share more in the New Year!

Rinse cranberries and place in a medium bowl. Heat syrup in a small sauce pan just until warm.
Pour over cranberries when syrup is warm, not hot, or cranberries may pop. Cool, cover, and let soak in the refrigerator overnight.
Drain cranberries in a colander. Place sugar in a large bowl or baking dish. Add cranberries in 2 batches and roll around until lightly coated in sugar. Place on a baking sheet until dry, about 1 hour.
