Cranberry and Cinnamon Eggless Pancakes

In about a week's time, my in-laws will be here for about 3 weeks. While my Mum-in-law passed away way back in 2000, my Father-in-law will be accompanying my husband's Grand mum on her first International holiday. My FIL is quite a no-fuss person when it comes to food but the same cannot be said about my husband's grand mum. She is a widow and follows a strict no onion, no garlic vegetarian diet which is freaking me out. Although she is quite active and manages her own cooking, but when you have guests at home it does not quite look good to let them do all the cooking. So as a preparation for their arrival, today's recipe is an eggless pancake with dried cranberries and served with honey for breakfast. Easy and quick and good to eat!

Ingredients (Makes 10 Pancakes)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp olive oil (you can replace this with 1 tbsp butter if you want a more buttery flavor)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp cinnamon powder
Fistful of dried cranberries or anything of your choice 
3/4 - 1 cup milk 

In a bowl, mix all the wet ingredients except the milk. Now add the flour, cinnamon powder, and the baking powder and mix. Add milk little at a time to form a smooth cakey batter. It should not be too runny or too thick. Lastly, add the dried cranberries and mix. Cover and keep aside for 5-10 minutes.
Now heat a non-stick girdle and add a bit of oil. Add spoonfuls of the batter on medium heat and cook till golden on one side and little holes appear on the top. Flip and cook on the other side as well. Remove from heat and serve hot with some honey or maple syrup or any syrup of your choice.
