My favorite pancakes and syrup

I've been wanting to share these recipes with you for some time now. Breakfast dishes can be enjoyed at any meal time, and this oatmeal pancake recipe is one of those! It comes from Camp Ironwood's cookbook called, Come and Dine. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Pancakes
*serves 6-8

2 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 cup oil
4 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 cups flour (I like to use 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour.)
1 cups oats
2 teaspoons vanilla

Beat eggs. Stir in milk and oil. Add all dry ingredients except flour and blend. Blend in flour until all but very fine lumps remain. Add milk if thinner pancakes are desired. Cook on a greased surface over medium high heat. Turn pancake when edges become dry and most of top is bubbly.

**Note: If you have leftover pancakes, these freeze really well. I sometimes make a bunch at a time just for this reason.

I found this pancake syrup recipe from Taste of Home. There are lots of variations out there, but this one is very simple and inexpensive. I don't think we'll go back to store-bought syrup, because we can save so much money making our own!

Pancake Syrup

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 teaspoon maple flavoring

In a small saucepan, combine the sugars and water. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for two minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in maple flavoring. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 cups

I have been wanting to try to make homemade syrup, this looks delish! Thank you! I think I'll try this as soon as we run out of syrup, which will be very soon!

Since we can't get syrup here, I do make my own, but this recipe looks a lot simpler than one of the last ones I tried. I am not sure what I did wrong, but I had rock candy instead of syrup! This will be the next syrup recipe that I try.

Oh, I'm so glad you posted this pancake recipe. I've been planning on looking for an oatmeal pancake recipe. I've never had them before but wanted to give them a try. I'll definitely be trying these. Thanks!!
