Buckwheat Pancakes

I love Saturdays.

Every beautiful Saturday morning, I wake up, ready for a completely empty day. For some of you, this isn’t the case. You might have to go to work, get ready for a party, go to a friend’s house for dinner. I, for sure, have had plenty of full and exhilarating Saturdays. I make an effort though, to make time to chill out on Saturdays, to watch a movie in the afternoon, and maybe take a nap. If I’m lucky.

My family’s Saturday morning tradition is pancakes.

Whatever your Saturday morning brings you, it never hurts to start off with a pancake. My dad is the Ultimate Pancake Master in our house, and he is always experimenting with recipes. As time went on, I got interested in cooking, and always wanted to flip the pancakes on the griddle. Dad taught me how to make the perfect pancake, and soon I was able to make them all by myself.

(That cute butter knife? Get it here.)

Then, my brother and sister tried it out, too, and soon all of us were able to make them. My dad pretty much retired from the pancake business and left it to us. There are plenty of arguments between the three of us to see who will make the pancakes and who will flip them. I usually lose, but when I do make them, I know that my pancakes are much better than my brother’s. 🙂

Gluten Free Pancakes

These Buckwheat Pancakes are a variation on our original recipe and include half wheat flour and half buckwheat flour. If you have a gluten allergy, you can easily substitute all buckwheat flour.

My family puts in some wheat flour because we love the texture and nutty flavor that wheat flour gives to pancakes.

Fluffy Pancakes

This Buckwheat Pancakes recipe produces the perfect fluffy pancake. Add a little butter and maple syrup and these will melt in your mouth.  And they’ll be a perfect start to your morning.

Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients
 

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup oil

Instructions
 

  • Mix all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. 
  • Prepare a hot griddle by melting butter on it or spraying it with cooking spray so the pancakes won't stick to the pan. 
  • Scoop the pancake batter with a ladle onto the hot griddle. When you see bubbles form on the top of the pancake, it is time to flip it. 
  • After flipping the pancake, let it cook for another minute or two, then move it to a plate.

They were great! I used two tbsp. Oil and the rest applesauce, since my husband is on a low-fat diet.

I make pancakes every Sunday and at least once a month I try a new recipe. I used the white Whole wheat flour with the buckwheat flour and like the flavor. I substituted the sugar with coconut sugar and malted milk powder which worked well. Just wanted a confirmation on the liquids. Very runny, and made 27 pancakes ! Is your serving 1 pancake ? Your photo looks like thicker pancakes. Your comments appreciated and thanks for sharing.

Made these this morning. Delicious. I used olive oil; 1/4 c. stevia in the raw for baking; 1/2 c. almond flour and 1/2 c. flax seed for 1 cup whole wheat flour and snuck in some tumeric (1 tsp….nobody noticed!). Will likely add another egg next time to fluff mine up a bit. Really tasty slathered in warmed berries without butter.

I made these this morning with fresh cherries added to the batter. They were delicious but a little thin. I may try cutting back the amount of milk and adding a little more baking powder.

Pancakes turned out really flat, but tender and the flavor was very good. Will make it with less milk next time.

Has anyone tried saving this batter in the fridge and making again the next day? I love the recipe but I’m just one person!

These pancakes are delicious! I followed the recipe exactly – used Bragg Organic apple cider vinegar and walnut oil. They are thinner than what I’ve made previously but still fluffy and great texture. I simply made a stack for hubby with more pancakes than usual and he really loved them. Thank you for sharing.

My wife and I love this recipe. Once you have buckwheat and whole wheat pancakes, other pancake recipes are only second best. We find to let the batter sit for 15 or 20 minutes. This lets the baking powder and soda do their thing and the pancakes are fluffier. Great recipe…
