Cranberry Chocolate Pancakes with Cranberry Syrup

I am so behind on all of my holiday recipes I wanted to blog about. The holiday's are in full swing and I am loving spending my extra time with my family. For all of our best recipes, make sure and login to Deals to Meals for the menu planners each week. You will find all of our favorite holiday recipes in there ;)

I do want to share a holiday recipe though for these delicious Cranberry Chocolate Pancakes. I love the combination of cranberry and chocolate. It makes for such a rich, dark pancake that is super moist and spongy. The sweet cranberry syrup is a perfect compliment for these pancakes, a little sweet and tart. These pancakes are a fun, holiday recipe to serve for a holiday brunch, Christmas morning or a quick, weeknight meal.  Hope you enjoy!

Cranberry Chocolate Pancakes

4 cups milk
1 can cranberry sauce (12-14 oz.)
4 eggs
4 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 1/2 cup flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder

Cranberry Syrup:
1 stick butter
1 can cranberry sauce (12-14 oz.)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Dash of salt
1/4 cup evaporated milk (or more if needed)

In a mixing bowl, with a whisk, whisk together the milk, canned cranberry sauce, and eggs until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients to the pancakes and continue to mix until well combined.  For the sauce, put the ingredients together into a sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Once the sugar is dissolved and the sauce has thickened, remove from the stove and set aside while you make the pancakes. If the syrup is too thick, you can add more evaporated milk if needed to thin out the syrup.

Heat a griddle to medium heat and spray with cooking spray or a little bit of butter. Once the griddle is hot, pour a 1/3-1/2 cup of the pancake batter onto the surface and cook until the under side of the pancake is golden brown. Once it is, flip the pancake and cook on the other side. Continue to do this for all of the pancake batter (you can freeze extras of the pancakes for later). Serve the pancakes with the cranberry syrup.

Not only your recipe but also the way you present the pancake is awesome. Particularly this one is articulating the sense of the taste buds. Your word power is awesome. Keep it up.
