Breakfast or Dessert?

I made it for breakfast, but I think it would be totally satisfying as a dessert. I made the pancakes using one of my convenience mixes I already had made up. Then I made strawberry syrup. With it being strawberry harvest time around here I was looking for a few new recipes to try and this was definately a winner. I used strawberries that I had frozen unsweetened last week in the correct measurement for this recipe. I marked my freezer bag that it was 1 1/2 cup unsweetened chopped strawberries for Strawberry Syrup so that I would know exactly which bag to get out.

Strawberry Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water, divided
1 1/2 cups mashed unsweetened stawberries
2 tsp. cornstarch
1. In a saucepan, bring sugar and 3/4 cup water to a boil. Gradually add strawberries, return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Mix cornstarch and remaining water and add to strawberries during last minute or so of cooking time.
Serve over pancakes, waffles or ice cream.
I found this recipe here but modified it by adding the cornstarch.
