"Dreamcakes with Buttermilk Syrup

Are you looking for something to make for a special Father's Day breakfast?  The man of our house doesn't really like breakfast, but if yours does, he'll love these.

My mom makes the world's best pancakes. This is not an exaggeration.  Everyone that eats them agrees. She is the queen of all pancake making and I am not even biased b/c she is my mom.  She thinks she also makes the world's best potato salad and the world's best sugar cookies, but she is wrong. (My MIL makes the best sugar cookies and I think potato salad is nasty no matter who makes it).

 My kid's have decided that the term pancakes just doesn't do them justice and have renamed them "Dream Cakes".
We've all tried to make them, but somehow they just aren't the same as when she makes them.  She says it's b/c she cooks with love.  I think maybe stuff always tastes better when you didn't have to cook it. Even better if you escape the dishes too :)
We always at least double this.
In a bowl mix:
3/4 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup white flour
Sprinkle in a few Tb of  wheat germ

1 t bkg pwdr
1/2 t bkg soda
1/2 t salt
1 T sugar

In a separate bowl beat together:
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
4T oil

Mix wet and dry and pour on a greased skillet. Don't flip until tiny bubbles appear on the top of the pancake.Yummy!

My friend Kammy, posted a recipe of pumpkin waffles w/ buttermilk syrup a while ago.  The waffles were met w/ mixed reviews, but we all wanted to eat the syrup with a spoon. One of my kids even tried to pour the leftovers in a cup and drink it.

1 cube butter
1 cup sugar
½ cup buttermilk
1 t. Karo Syrup

Heat on Med. Till it comes to low boil and remove from heat and Add:

1 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla

Use a large pan because once the baking soda is added it grows in the pan. I store any leftovers in the fridge.
