I did have fun with the leftovers. I added another cup of flour, regular old wheat flour, another egg and some more buttermilk and then proceeded to make myself a breakfast fit for a
This isn't a one bowl recipe, sorry, but you do need to do it this way, trust me on this.
Recipe: Buckwheat Pancakes
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup whole wheat or regular flour
2 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
Mix together the dry ingredients and set aside. In a separate bowl whip up the egg whites until just stiff, and set aside. Whisk together the egg yolks and buttermilk, add to the dry ingredients. Stir til just combined, then add the butter, and finally, fold in the egg whites, gently. You'll end up with some streaks and chunks of egg whites, but that's ok. Do not overmix.
Grease a pan, and heat it then, spoon in a 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on top of pancake, then flip for another minute or so.
Serve with some syrup, I like golden corn syrup, but that's my Canadian side talking, we always had golden corn syrup with our pancakes.
So good, and one recipe I will make again and again. I need to, I still have a lot of buckwheat flour left.
