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.
I mixed together the eggs, flour and milk and put it in the oven. The magic is watching the pancake create a giant puff.
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!
