Easy Bread and Jam Pancake

Got tired of having bread and jam??? If so let’s make pancakes out of them…

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We are having a nice relaxing weekend. I am so glad that there are two really good beaches in our city. We have been hitting the beaches every Saturday; motorcycle riding to the beach, swimming in the water and enjoying the sunset has been one of the main attractions of this summer.

Unlike other weekends, this weekend I decided to take a break from cereal and was determined enough to make a healthy homemade breakfast. It has been always hard for me to negotiate with my brain in the morning and to drive myself into the kitchen to make breakfast. On Saturday, I overcame this and made breakfast from scratch. Only requirement I had was not to spend too much time in the kitchen.

I had whole wheat bread and strawberry jam, and my lousy brain tried its best to compromise with me to just have that and to go back to bed. But I didn’t give my ear and started making pancake out of it. The pancakes came out really delicious and very less time is needed to make this. You could serve this for breakfast or as an evening snack.
