Buckwheat pancakes

Meet my new preferred pancakes, buckwheat pancakes. I’ll admit they aren’t the sexiest pancakes all around, but they make up for their humble appearance with wonderful flavor and texture. Buckwheat, a gluten-free of charge relative of rhubarb, has a delicate, practically nutty taste all its own.

Thanks to the buckwheat flour, these pancakes possess a light and airy consistency that quietly surrenders to the stress of a fork and soaks up maple syrup like a sponge. The pancakes pair properly with roasted strawberries, as shown right here, or with a healthy swipe of peanut butter or almond butter.

This recipe was adapted from a exciting new cookbook named Pancakes, by fellow food blogger Adrianna Adarme of A Cozy Kitchen. I go to Adrianna’s weblog any time I need to have some inventive recipe inspiration or a laugh, which is frequently.

Adrianna’s new (and very first!) cookbook is bursting with 72 brilliant pancake recipes, half sweet (honey and oat, ginger pear, cinnamon-sugar popovers) and half savory (jalapeo corn cakes, goat cheese quinoa cakes, sour cream and chive latkes). If sky-high, fluffy pancakes are your jam, she gives a ton of alternatives based on her buttermilk pancakes recipe. This guide would be the perfect present for the pancake/latke lover in your life. Congrats, Adrianna!

Buckwheat offers these pancakes incredible taste. This buckwheat pancake recipe yields deliciously light and thin pancakes. For pancakes that are even lighter in texture and flavor, use half all function (Adrianna’s suggestion) or complete wheat pastry flour (my default). Recipe yields eight pancakes (a lot for two men and women).


  • one cup buckwheat flour (or buckwheat and flour of choice)
  • one tablespoon sugar
  • one teaspoon baking powder
  • one teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup s buttermilk, shaken*
  • one huge egg
  • teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Butter, for the skillet
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced into bite-sized quarters or halves
  • one teaspoon sugar
  • one tablespoon maple syrup or honey


  1. Roast the strawberries: preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, gently toss berries with the sugar and maple syrup/honey. Arrange the strawberries in a single layer on the baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway, or prolonged enough for the berry juices to thicken but not burn up (observe the edges in particular).
  2. Make the pancakes: in a medium mixing bowl, combine together the flour(s), sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a liquid measuring cup, measure out the buttermilk. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

  4. Preheat your skillet more than medium-reduced heat and brush with 1 teaspoons of butter. Give the batter a light swirl with a spoon in case the buckwheat is starting to separate from the liquid. Using a -cup measure, scoop the batter onto the warm skillet. Cook for 2 to three minutes till little bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes (you’ll know it’s ready to flip when about one inch of the perimeter is matte alternatively of glossy), and flip. Cook on the opposite sides for 1 to two minutes, or till golden brown.
  5. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a baking sheet and place in a preheated 200 degree Fahrenheit oven to maintain warm. Repeat the approach with the remaining batter, adding more butter when necessary. Serve quickly.

If you love these pancakes: you’ll also appreciate my buckwheat crepes recipe and my other pancake recipes!
A note on fluffiness: I attempted forcing some further height into these pancakes by utilizing half complete wheat pastry flour and even folded in whipped egg whites, but neither produced a considerable distinction. Then I took an additional bite and wondered why I was attempting to make these marvelous pancakes some thing they’re not. They’re best just the way they are.
