Easy Buckwheat Pancakes


Buckwheat Pancakes

My Grandmother made the best sourdough buckwheat pancakes and my Dad has carried on the tradition. But the recipe requires starting the batter the day before and, let’s face it, I’m not always that organized.

So I decided to try adapting my everyday pancake recipe using buckwheat flour. They are just as easy to make as regular pancakes, the flavor is hearty and delicious, and I can decide at the last minute that I want buckwheat pancakes.

I hope you like these as much as my family does!
