Made with fresh or frozen cranberries, these pancakes have a hint of orange that makes for a tasty breakfast! Original recipe is from The Joy of Cranberries: The Tangy Red Treat, with a small tweak from yours truly! Various syrups do well with these, but when they're topped with a cranberry syrup like Cranberry Syrup, well . . .
