Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes - Farm Girl Fresh


Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes

I’ve tried cooking with buckwheat flour on and off over the years. It has a distinct flavor that has become an acquired taste. If you are eating gluten-free, these Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes are a delicious alternative to traditional buttermilk pancakes! (And this recipe makes a lot so we always have leftovers to freeze for a quick meal another day.) Serve them with our Rhubarb Blueberry Sauce, Applesauce or Apple Butter (pg. 32), Blueberry Sauce (pg. 61), Rhubarb Sauce (pg. 209) or Strawberry Sauce (pg. 235). And for an added treat we top it with a tablespoon of yogurt (pg. 236)!


2 eggs, beaten
2-1/2 cups buttermilk, (or milk with 2-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice added to make buttermilk)
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups buckwheat flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat pancake griddle. In a medium bowl, mix together first four ingredients.
