Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes

I tweaked an old recipe this morning and came up with these fluffy, delicious, Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes.

Growing up, my family made pancakes often and we topped them with real maple syrup from my cousins’ sugar bush. It doesn’t get much better than that! Sometimes my Dad would go all out and make sourdough buckwheat pancakes like his mom made when he was a kid. I usually make buckwheat pancakes with this recipe.

Yesterday I scored a half quart of buttermilk marked down to 50¢ and decided to make buttermilk pancakes this morning. I have a bag of buckwheat flour that should be used up soon, so this recipe was born…and brought to you hot off the griddle!

This recipe is easy to make and you can sift together the dry ingredients ahead of time.

Don’t have buttermilk? Use regular milk and add a little vinegar to make it curdle…easy! You can also use regular milk and replace a few tablespoons of flour with buttermilk powder.

Try making your own buttermilk!

Save Some Dough & Make Breakfast From Scratch!

It might seem like pancakes would be a bit higher priced breakfast food because buying a mix isn’t cheap. If you make them from scratch, they aren’t expensive at all.  Top them with homemade jam or applesauce to save even more on your hot breakfast. You can even make an extra-large batch of pancakes to have leftovers before heading off to work or school. Compared to the cost of most cold breakfast cereal, this is a thrifty way to start your day.
