- In a large bowl stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl use a fork to combine egg, buttermilk, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). If desired, stir in desired Fruit Options.
- For standard-size pancakes, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet, spreading batter if necessary. For dollar-size pancakes, use about 1 tablespoon batter. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning over when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Serve warm. If desired, top with syrup and/or Topping Options.
