The Perfect Pancake

I know I said, forget pancakes, but we do, occasionally eat pancakes.In fact, we've found an oatmeal pancake recipe, we really enjoy from The Mennonite Country-Style Recipes & Kitchen Secrets.

When I first came across the cookbook, I chuckled. Many of the recipes are things I'd never dream of cooking, but I've discovered that there are many others that are simple and with a few tweaks make amazingly great food.

This recipe for maple oatmeal pancakes is one of those recipes. Simple and hearty, these pancakes cook up beautifully every time. I often mix it up by adding shredded apple or whole wheat flour and, of course, when the recipe calls for sugar - I substitute pure granulated maple sugar.
