Making these has become our Saturday morning breakfast tradition. Excellent recipe. Thank you!
You’re welcome Stephen, I’m so glad you like them!
Amazing, you have to try them!
I was so nervous about making these. I’ve never used buckwheat flour, but being on a new diet plan, I thought I’d give it a try. I did 3/4 buckwheat to 1/4th regular flour as that’s all the regular flour I had. I also didn’t have buttermilk so I used yogurt! My husband and I both thought they were delicious! I will be making these again for sure!
Glad you liked these, Terri! We also have a buckwheat waffles recipe if you’re looking for new ways to use buckwheat.
Very good pancakes! I will be making again!
Just delicious used yogurt
I did the full buckwheat recipe with egg and the result was nice. I never keep buttermilk in the house, but I always keep yogurt – it’s a nice substitute: just whisk in water to the texture of buttermilk. Is anyone else piqued by the strange texture of buckwheat in the batter? Kind of ‘sticky’.Nice recipe!
Very tasty. I did the half and half flours version with the egg. I beat the egg, melted butter and 1 1/2 c of buttermilk together before adding to the dry ingredients, and then had to add the other 1/2 c of milk to get the batter thin enough to spread. Thanks for doing the work to create this recipe.
A little prep but totally worth it— I made mine with 1/2 regular flour. Delicious!
I followed the recipe, except, only used 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar & a pinch of kosher salt, and also added 1/4 tsp of baking powder.
These are wonderful. My 6 year old daughter loves them. I use all buckwheat flour and use honey instead of sugar and add fresh blueberries. Yummy! Thank you!
Elise, my husbandis a diabetic and has never had buckwheat before. These were delicious! The only modification I made was I used Coconut Palm Sugar instead of White Sugar. Absolutely worth making from scratch. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I am now a fan!
Wonderful Julie! I’m so glad you liked the pancakes and were able to make them work for your husband’s diet!
Very good thank you…
These are so good! I used all buckwheat flour, 2tbsp flax seed, 2tbsp coconut palm sugar instead of 3tbsp of sugar and the 1.5c yogurt/.5 milk instead of buttermilk. Butter and maple syrup, and they were perfect. Literally never seen my son devour something like that!
Also worth noting for the ladies, these are a great nutrient dense breakfast option during that time of the month.
Thanks for the recipe, Elise. Although I had to get creative with the buttermilk (I thinned down Greek yogurt with water), my kids loved it.
Wonderful Kim, I’m so glad you and your kids liked the pancakes!
I made these for breakfast and they turned out so light and fluffy. I only used 1 1/4c of buttermilk. I also added a little vanilla. Plate up with oleo and a little syrup or preserves and ooh what a yummy breakfast. Thanks for the recipe I will definitely make again
Yum-mee! I substituted avocado oil for the butter and yogurt for the buttermilk. I also skipped the sugar and instead added canned pumpkin & cinnamon. This recipe is a keeper!
I used almond milk, added the white vinegar, 1/2 and 1/2 on the flours, everything else the same, included egg. Enough for six 5” pancakes. Delicious!!
I used all buckwheat flour and substituted yogurt and milk instead of buttermilk. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla. They were delicious and I’ll definitely make them again.
Good! I added whole wheat pastry flour instead of white flour. Also, added 3 Tablespoons of black strap molasses. It was a bit think, so I thinned with a smidge more buttermilk. I cooked the entire batch and kept warm in my oven on200 degrees. Served immediately when finished cooking with eggs and soy bacon. My family really loved this breakfast! Healthy and very tasty.
Been searching for the pefect buckwheat pancake. This is it!!! The addition of AP flour and butter made these decadent. All buckwheat is just too heavy. Used high quality buttermilk, which took them over the top. Made homemade blueberry syrup to go on top. There were none left!!!
