These are so easy to make using your favorite pancake mix, substituting eggnog for the milk/water and adding some dried cranberries. Serve them with your favorite syrup or with an easy to make cranberry-maple syrup (recipe included)

  • Servings: 2-3
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes


1 cup Your Favorite Pancake Mix, even gluten-free!
⅔ cup Eggnog, adjust to the amount of milk/water called for with your pancake mix
1 Egg, if called for with your pancake mix
¼ cup Dried Sweetened Cranberries
¼ tsp Nutmeg
Butter/oil, for the griddle
Cranberry-maple Syrup (optional):
1 cup Fresh or Frozen Cranberries, thawed
¼ cup Sugar
¼ cup Orange Juice
½ cup Maple Syrup


1. Mix together the pancake mix, egg nog, egg (if specified on your pancake mix), dried cranberries and nutmeg. Blend well.

2. Heat and butter/oil your pancake griddle. Pour out 4 inch diameter pancakes. Flip the pancakes when the batter has lost its shine and bubbles break.

3. For the syrup: In a small sauce pan over med-high heat, add the whole cranberries, sugar and orange juice. Cook until the cranberries have popped (about 3-5 minutes) stir frequently.

4. Remove from heat and add the maple syrup and then puree the mixture using an immersion blender or regular blender. Serve warm (re-heat in microwave as needed).
