These are terrific pancakes! Loved the taste and texture from the 4 different "flours" and the honey and nuts were a perfect addition. I just topped mine with maple syrup and loved every bite - thanks for sharing the recipe!
These were great - a different pancake from what I'm used to! We tried them with apple, and some with maple syrup and Bright, Light Buttermilk Syrup but our favourite way was just with a little butter spread on top so we could taste all the great ingredients. Made one small change - ran out of honey so I used corn syrup. Made for PAC Spring '12
These are a nice change from regular pancakes and somewhat similar to a spiced pancake I've made for years. I cut the recipe down to two servings, using sugar in place of honey, and whole wheat pastry flour for lighter cakes. I also added a little cinnamon and some vanilla and extra nutmeg. They flipped quite easily. Cold sliced apple on pancakes does nothing for me so I sprinked a tiny bit of cinnamon sugar on them and cooked them in the microwave for a few minutes and added a dollop of whipped cream.
