For the Cranberry Orange Pancakes:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; whisk well to combine. Add in the chopped cranberries and, using a rubber spatula, mix until they're coated in the dry ingredients. Set aside until needed.
  2. In a separate large mixing bowl, add the eggs and lightly beat them with a whisk until the yolks and whites are evenly combined. Add in the milk, ricotta cheese, and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just until everything is combined. Quickly fold in the orange juice and zest, stirring until evenly combined. Be careful not to over mix the batter.
  4. Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a greased hot pan or griddle, adding only a few at a time so that they do not blend together. Cook for about 2 minutes before flipping them over, or until small bubbles form on top. Cook on the second side until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Repeat with all pancake batter. Serve pancakes warm, with cranberry maple syrup, plain maple syrup, or whipped cream.

For the Cranberry Maple Syrup:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the cranberries, orange juice and sugar to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until they cranberries have softened and can easily be smashed with the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the maple syrup and butter. Spoon the mixture on top of the pancakes and serve at once.


To freeze: place cooled pancakes between layers of waxed paper, then place them in a freezer-safe plastic bag, squeezing out any excess air before sealing the bag and placing it in the freezer. Pancakes will keep in the freezer for 2 months.

To reheat: heat your oven to 375 degrees (F). Place the pancakes in a single layer on a large baking pan; cover with tinfoil and heat in a preheated oven for 6-8 minutes, or until warm. You may also microwave 3-4 pancakes at a time for about 40 seconds, or until heated through.
