Christmas Morning Sweet Cranberry Pancakes

Christmas Morning Sweet Cranberry Pancakes from the Ladybird Christmas Podcast series. Perfect for making with the kids on Christmas morning.

For how many? Makes 4


  • 200g self raising flour
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • pinch of salt
  • 150g dried sweet cranberries
  • 1 egg
  • 225ml buttermilk (see alternative below)
  • Butter/oil to frying, maple syrup, butter or honey to serve


Simply add all the dry ingredients, mix and then whisk up egg and butter milk, then add to dry ingredients and fold and mix again. 

Add little butter and a dash of oil, wait a few minutes until the pan is hot, then make 4 little pancakes. Leave them to fry for about three minutes on each side. Don’t be tempted to prod and flip them - leave them to it. 

Serve straight away with above suggestion or - serve with crispy rashers.

* if you dont have buttermilk, dont worry - Instead add 1 tablespoon of Lemon Juice or white wine vinegar to 225ml or 1 cup of Full fat milk, wait 5 mins, the acid will sour the milk, which is exactly what you want.  Then whisk it up with the egg.
