Oatmeal Pancake with Maple-Strawberry Syrup

Healthy and delicious breakfast…

You guessed it right, I got tired of my usual cereal breakfast. Just as a coincidence, I came across an easy breakfast dish. This is absolutely not my recipe. Ever since I’ve started going to grad school, I’ve been a regular reader of Western Gazette, this is the student newspaper of my University. With the advent of internet, I seldom buy newspapers, as a matter of fact I had not read newspapers for a long time. However, after reading western gazette, I was relived to learn that I still enjoy reading newspapers. Lying on my couch, sipping a cup of coffee with my eyes travelling through every nook and corner of the paper, this is how I love to read. As I read, I get a relaxed feeling which the internet fails to offer me.

Another reason for me to grab this paper is they have a column for recipes. Last week they had the the recipe for Oatmeal pancake. I brought the paper home and placed it on my kitchen counter. Every morning when I entered the kitchen I made sure to take a look at the recipe hoping to try it. Then, I would easily fall for the cereal box in my pantry. But yesterday, I did hold on to my  decision of trying this recipe. This easy recipe didn’t take up much of my time, in less than 20 minutes I was seen enjoying this.

Sharing with my readers, try a new breakfast dish and you’ll get a feeling that your day is going to be a good one. I topped the pancake with homemade Maple Strawberry Syrup.
