About this recipe: These are delicious buckwheat pancakes that taste great with some butter and honey or jam.
If you'd like to make gluten free pancakes, simply substitute the plain flour for a gluten free flour mix or additional buckwheat flour. Buckwheat flour is naturally gluten free.
I had bought a bag of buckwheat flour on a recent trip to a mill. I wanted to try buckwheat pancakes because I'd never eaten them. My husband and I both loved the taste. However, they didn't rise like the regular pancakes I'm used to. I've since learned that the batter needs to sit for a while before using it. So, I'm anxious to try again. Next time, I'll make the batter the night before and keep in the refrigerator. - 11 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are really good. My whole family loved them. Best if you let the mix sit for a bit to make lighter, fluffier pancakes. - 08 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Regular or 'heart-healthy' kind are really GOOD! Heart-healthy even lighter in texture which helps with initial (They're too heavy!) reactions from new eaters of Buckwheat. If the batter sits and works about 1-2 hours, the lighter they get! Our tasters could not tell the difference between 'heart-stoppers' & 'heart-healthy' batches. - 26 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
