Down the Beaten Path

Down the Beaten Path

Thursday, November 21, 2013


I love them and always have blueberry, chocolate chip, banana, plain, wheat, buckwheat, white flour, oat flour, sour dough, the list goes on. I love them with maple syrup, honey, butter, agave, peanut butter not so much, but strawberry syrup, elderberry, blueberry...You get the picture.
If you never tried buckwheat then your missing a treat. Since I do love them I like to try different ones and even though I do love them I don't eat them every single day....I know you thought that didn't you?

Buckwheat is a tasty grain that I have come to love, its not wheat like the name suggests and so it your gluten intolerant you can eat it. It makes a thick dough that makes fluffy pancakes I made then plain the first time but I'm thinking blueberrys or something next time.

Try some you will be glad you did.
BuckWheat Pancakes
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter or margarine


Mix dry ingredients together; add egg, milk and butter or margarine, beating well after each addition.Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto hot griddle. Cook 1 to 1½ minutes, turning when edges look cooked and bubbles begin to break on the surface. Continue to cook 1 to 1½ minutes or until golden brown.
