Dates Pancake – Eggless and Healthy

A healthy breakfast to kick start your day…

I’ve turned into a pancakeaholic, and have been making pancakes by adding different ingredients each time. So far, this dates pancake is my favorite, maybe because I love dates and is such a healthy dried fruit. I’ve said a million times that my most favorite cake is made with dates, dates cake in caramel sauce. Honestly, I haven’t come across a better tasting cake than this and I am sure whoever has tried it wouldn’t debate with me at least on this.

It’s been one of those weeks when I’d been phewing a lot, done with all the phews. After all the hard work I am feeling so relieved and content. I really enjoyed preparing the poster which summarizes all the research that I had done for the past two years. Now, can’t wait to pack my bags and board the flight to Vancouver. Even though I’ve to be at the conference next week during day time, my like minded friends and I are planning to roam around a lot in the evening and for the whole day on Thursday as well. It’s definitely going to be a good break for me from researching, cooking, blogging, gardening and literally everything. Well, I keep forgetting that I am going for a conference.

So guys have a fun weekend and a week ahead as well. I’ll make sure not to check this page until I return…
