Flaxseed Honey Cakes

Sweeter than regular pancakes, these will need less syrup than "regular" pancakes. They pack added nutrition from the flax seed and whole wheat flour too!

yield: 4 servings

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp flax seed
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp honey

1. In medium bowl combine flours through salt; stir with a whisk. Add egg, buttermilk, oil, and honey, stirring until combined well.
2. Pour batter in 3-inch circles on a griddle over medium heat. Cook until small bubbles form near the center of the pancakes; flip. Cook until pancakes are rising and poofy. Remove from griddle and repeat with remaining batter. Top with syrup and enjoy!

The honey in the pancakes make them burn more easily than regular pancake batter. Have patience and turn the burner to a lower temperature than you usually would when making pancakes. With regular pancakes I usually set mine to "7" or "8"...with these even at "5" I had a difficult time not burning them.
