Cranberry Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

I might have gone a little crazy a few weeks ago when cranberries went on sale.  I knew I wanted to make a batch of cranberry relish to enjoy on turkey sandwiches, so I tried a recipe I found in the Ball Blue Book that called for cranberries, apples, sugar, lemon juice, and walnuts.  Even though I halved the sugar, it was still plenty sweet.  And delicious.  I might have made a ton of it.

I decided to try it in pancakes, to see if the kids liked it, too.  When I found myself making them a second time in as many days, I knew I’d found a keeper.  This recipe makes about 30 pancakes, so I freeze them to have on hand for crazy mornings.  It’s just a matter of popping them in the toaster to defrost and heat, and breakfast (or, heck… dinner!) is done.
