Whole Wheat Pancakes and Heavenly Caramel Syrup

I have two recipes that I love for whole wheat pancakes. Today I made the recipe that uses just the ground wheat flour. However, I am posting the blender pancake recipe as well. The already ground flour recipe is probably my favorite of the two, but if you are too lazy to grind your flour for breakfast, its really nice to have the option of just putting the whole wheat kernel right into your blender. And honestly, both recipes are great!

I'm also putting all of our favorite syrup recipes in here. I tried a new one today that I got from Sister Wood, the lady we home teach. It's for vanilla syrup. It's really good. Reminds me of the caramel syrup our family loves. However, a staple is also the homemade maple syrup. So, here is the recipe for all three!
Whole Wheat Pancakes:
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup oil
1 TBSP. baking powder
1 TBSP. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups freshly ground whole wheat flour

Mix all together and pour onto griddle. Don't re-stir the batter!

Whole Wheat Blender Pancake Recipe:
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/4 cups whole wheat kernels
2 eggs
2 TBSP. oil
1 TBSP. honey
1/2 tsp. salt

Blend the buttermilk and the wheat kernels until smooth. Add the eggs, oil, honey and salt. Blend again until smooth. Then add the baking soda and baking powder and blend just for a few seconds. Don't ever stir again. Pour onto hot griddle.

1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder

Caramel Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cube butter, real butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 TBSP. karo syrup

Bring to a boil. As soon as it boils, remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Vanilla Syrup
1 cube butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Bring to a boil, remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla.

Maple Syrup
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. mapelline flavoring

Bring water and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat, add vanilla and mapeline.
