12 6-inch panckes
Serving Size
2 pancakes

¾ cup buckwheat flour

¾ cup whole white wheat flour

3 tablespoons sugar

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 egg, beaten

2 cups non-fat buttermilk, divided

vegetable oil


  1. Heat a large griddle pan over medium heat.  Prepare batter while pan is heating.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients (flours, sugar, salt, baking soda) in a large bowl.
  3.  In a medium bowl, stir egg and 1 cup of the buttermilk until combined, then slowly add in melted butter until incorporated.
  4. Add the buttermilk/egg mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring to blend.  Add in the remaining buttermilk to batter.  Stir only until everything is combined, batter may be slightly lumpy. Do not over mix.
  5. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the pan with vegetable oil. Ladle ¼ cup batter onto the hot pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Allow the pancake to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles come the surface. Flip the pancake and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve with butter and maple syrup.

How'd it Taste?

After mixing, I waited about 5 minutes to let the soda react with the buttermilk. These cakes almost floated off the griddle. Light, fluffy and very tasty...
Great recipe have made pancakes and waffles out of it.
