Beat together the egg and buttermilk, then mix in flour, baking powder, and salt. Add honey, mix until just blended, then stir in oil.
Prepare on medium hot griddle until bubbles are well-formed around edges and pancakes are golden; turn and cook other side 2 minutes. Serve with your favorite topping.
Makes 8 pancakes.
Variation: Whole Wheat Crepes; add more liquid to make a thinner batter (the thinner the batter, the lighter the crepe), testing as you go for the texture you prefer. Cook crepes as you do pancakes. You may use any filling.
