Buttermilk Buckwheat Pancakes

I tweaked an old recipe this morning and came up with these 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!

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 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.
