  • 2 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar* super fine
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or raisins Sneh's recipe calls for raisins
  • 1 tablespoon rum I used a coconut rum
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup chocolate chips optional
  • pinch fo salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Rum Butter Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon run I used coconut rum
  • 2 tablespoon dried cranberries or raisins Sneh's recipe calls for raisins
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup


  • To make the pancakes, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, and whisk with a wire whisk until smooth. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
  • To make the rum butter sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small sauce heavy-bottomed saucepan on low heat. Simmer until the butter has melted and the cranberries (or raisins) are plump. Remove from the heat and leave in the pan to keep warm.
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat. Pour 1/2-1/3 cup pancake batter on the center of the hot pan and gently spread the batter for form a circle. If desired, sprinkle in a few chocolate chips (do it!). Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Using a spatula, gently flip the pancake over and cook the other side for a minute, or until golden. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • Serve pancakes drizzled with the rum butter sauce. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
