Cranberry Orange Maple Syrup

Posted by on Thursday, December 9th, 2010


Special people and special times call for a special breakfast.  Here’s  a “special” recipe for Cranberry Orange Maple Syrup.  This syrup can be whipped up in about 5 minutes and is best served warm over you favorite pancake or waffle recipe. Dear Hubby loves for me to toss a few pecans on his pancakes while they cook for a toasty flavor, which is a nice compliment to the cranberry and orange flavor.  I created this recipe for Christmas this year.  Enjoy!

  • 1 can whole cranberry sauce
  • 2 cups maple syrup
  • zest of one orange
  • 4 Tablespoons real butter

In a medium size sauce pan, add the cranberry sauce, maple syrup, orange zest, and butter.  Bring mixture to a low boil, whisking constantly to blend ingredients.  Continue to stir and let syrup bubble for about 5 minutes.  Reduce heat to low and keep syrup warm until pancakes or waffles are ready to be served.  Pour warm syrup over pancakes or waffles and garnish with pecans, more orange zest, and fresh whipping cream.
