Orange-Cranberry Pancakes and A Giveaway

Growing up, my dad didn’t do too much of the cooking aside from the manly task of managing the outdoor grill. However, every once and a while, he would wake up early and make us the most incredible breakfasts.

In my opinion, he is the world’s best sausage patty cooker…ever!

Although most of the men I know don’t cook much, they all love to get their grill on, so when I was putting together a holiday gift guide, I knew I had to include a gift idea for the guys! I am a HUGE fan of everything Le Creuset, so I figured their fantastic reversible grill/griddle  would be the perfect addition to my gift guide.

I love my reversible grill/griddle for everything from grilling a steak indoors to preparing a big batch of fluffy pancakes on Sunday mornings. In fact, this morning I used some leftover cranberry sauce to make a delectable stack of Cranberry-Pancakes. Topped with maple syrup, these Cranberry-Orange pancakes definitely hit the spot, plus what better way can you think of to use up Thanksgiving leftovers?

If you have never used a grill/griddle pan before, it is an extremely versatile addition to anyone’s kitchen. The pan fits over two burners to allow a large cooking surface, so it’s perfect for grilling up a batch of burgers or making French toast for a small army! Its enameled cast iron construction holds up to some serious temperatures and disperses heat like a dream. Plus, its slim profile tucks away perfectly into my cookie sheet cabinet.

In the spirit of the season, we are giving away one of these fantastic Le Creuset Reversible Grill/Griddle to one lucky My Baking Addiction reader.

Orange-Cranberry Pancakes

November 28th, 2010

Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients:

3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Zest on 1/2 orange
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup Orange-Cranberry Sauce (or any type of cranberry sauce)

Directions:

1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".

2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg, butter, vanilla and orange zest into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.

3. Heat a large griddle or skillet over medium heat, and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the skillet, and scatter cranberries around the pancake and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

Notes:

Notes: If you don’t have leftover cranberry sauce, you can substitute in fresh or frozen blueberries or simply make the pancakes without any fruit.

The 15 quart Goose Pot would have to be my top pick. Can you imagine the size Chicken and Sausage Gumbo (no okra please) that I could prepare in that?
