I feel a little guilty for flaking on this weeks' Seven-Day Spotlight, so to make up for it I give you Aunt May's recipe for wheatcakes — so good, you'd sell your soul for a stack!

Click to super-size!

Aunt May's old-lady scratchings are a little hard to read, so here's the lowdown in case you're having trouble:

Mix together:

1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup sifted whole wheat flour
2 tsps double-acting baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups buttermilk and 2 tsps molasses, then set aside.

Add to the flour mix:

2 beaten egg yolks
1/4 melted butter
the buttermilk/molasses mixture

Whip 2 egg whites until stiff (but not dry!), then fold them into the batter gently until blended. Don't overmix!

Cook on a greased hot griddle or frying pan, until small bubbles appear on top. Then turn pancakes over and cook until bottom is lightly browned. Serve hot, with butter and maple syrup.

Peter's favorite!
