"Everything can have drama if it's done right. Even a pancake." -Julia Child

The refrigerator light goes on...

Pancakes are a great weekend breakfast but can be perfect for weekdays as well. This Oat Pancake recipe takes all of about 20 minutes to whisk together and make fantastic tasting pancakes. The whole wheat flour and oats bring more fiber to the party, and when you combine that with some fresh fruit and some fruit sauce you have a great start to the day.

Soaking the oats in the buttermilk is key to a smooth batter. It is worth the extra ten minutes.
