Happy Wednesday everyone! Halfway through the week and time for yet another delicious recipe from one of the awesome chefs here at Cedar Fort. Today’s recipe comes from Carlene Duda’s Beyond Oatmeal: 101 Breakfast Recipes.

If you are sick of having the same two or three things for breakfast every morning, this is definitely the book for you. You’ll learn how to make streusels, crumb cakes, sweet breads, and even some amazing twists to the standard waffles, muffins, french toast and pancakes. Just check out this delicious version of pancakes. As usual with the recipes I choose, its easy and doesn’t have too many ingredients, which definitely helps out when you are rushing through your morning.
