The flavor of dandelion flowers is very subtle, which makes adding it to your current recipes very easy as they do not interfere with other flavors. The flowers add cheerful specks of yellow and you benefit from their nutritional value. Here, I added dandelion flowers to my favorite cornmeal pancake recipe. A perfect part of a hearty country breakfast.

2/3 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon sugar

1/4 cup cornmeal

1/2 cup dandelion flowers (the yellow part)

3 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1-1/2 cup milk

Put the dry ingredients in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add the oil, eggs, dandelion flowers and milk. Beat well/ Let sit for a few minutes. Then cook on a hot griddle.

Enjoy your breakfast, everyone!
