Cranberry Apple Ginger Pancakes

Cranberry Apple Ginger Pancakes for a holiday breakfast or a simple brunch. Easy to follow recipe!
 Cranberry Crush week is winding down. I’m sad to see how quickly that time went. I thought I’d never want to see a cranberry recipe again, after cooking so many samples, but the truth is, I still love cranberries just as much! In fact, you’ll probably see more over the next few weeks!

     Today I’m sharing with you a simple recipe that I love. It’s “in season” from early fall until Christmas. The cranberry apple compote is simple to make with your existing cranberry sauce. They top a classic pancake that has a ginger twist. Pretty enough for a holiday breakfast, but simple enough for a lazy day brunch. If your a cranberry fan, you will fall head over heals for these Cranberry Apple Ginger Pancakes.

Ginger pancakes with cranberries and apples

I love apple slices that have been cooked down and caramelized. Adding the cranberries seemed like a natural fit.

The ginger pancakes added onto the holiday flavor. It really kicks up the taste of plain pancakes.
