Pancakes for supper

We had a wonderful day at the zoo for Zoe's third birthday. They ran from one exhibit to the next laughing and jumping with excitement. Mostly Zoe talked about snack times, lunches, and what we were going to have for supper that night. Bless her heart, you'd think I never feed the child! When we got home yesterday we let the kids swim in the baby pool on the deck while I made her favorite...whole wheat buttermilk pancakes. AMAZING! They are so light that we usually end up  eating 4 a piece, except my husband. We won't even go into how many disappear off his plate! Here is the recipe for all family and friends.
In large bowl whisk together:
-1 1/2 cup ground whole wheat flour
-3 tbs brown sugar
-1 3/4 tsp baking powder
-3/4 tsp baking soda
-dash of cinnamon
- dash of nutmeg
In separate bowl mix:
-1 1/4 cup cream
-1/4 cup lemon juice
Let this mixture sit for 5 minutes
Then slowly add:
-3tbs extra virgin olive oil
-2 large eggs
-1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix well then add slowly to dry. (Don't over mix)
Butter up your skillet, cook, and enjoy!
