Best Pancakes EVER!!! (Mom's whole wheat buttermilk pancakes)

This recipe is yet another of my moms (if she would get on the ball, I wouldn't have to post all of her recipes for her....he,he,he. I am totally kidding) As the title clearly states, these are the best pancakes you will ever have in your life! These are a "temple morning" staple at my parent's house. Everyone loves them.

½ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Stir together the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat the egg, buttermilk and oil together. Add the liquids to the flour mixture and stir just until blended. Pour the batter onto a greased hot griddle. Makes 12 4 inch pancakes.

Syrups: I grew up on homemade maple syrup and so, for me, there is no substitute. Store bought just can't hold it's own. (Thing to note, homemade syrup is much runnier than store-bought)

Maple Syrup:
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons mapeline

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil to create a "simple syrup" add mapeline. Serve.

Buttermilk Syrup: This is a favorite of all of my brother's friends. It has kind of a butter, caramel, marshmallow flavor to it.
1 ½ cups sugar
¾ cup buttermilk
½ cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla

Place all ingredients except vanilla in saucepan. Bring to boil. Boil for 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Makes 2 cups. Store in refrigerator.

Cinnamon Cream Syrup: I can't remember this one, but my mom likes it.
1 cup sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
¼ cup water
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup evaporated milk

In a saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool for 5 minutes. Stir in milk. Serve warm over pancakes, waffles or French toast. Store in refrigerator.
