Buckwheat Pancakes

Story location: Home / food_and_drink /
08/Nov/2015

When we were on holiday in France this summer, we ate a lot of the buckwheat pancakes, both in restaurants and from the supermarket. We brought a couple of bags of buckwheat flour home with us and I meant to have a go at making when we got back.

buckwheat pancake

I made a thin batter from

  • 250 g buckwheat
  • 3 small eggs
  • about 500ml of 50:50 milk and water
  • 60g melted butter
  • pinch of salt

I'm not sure exactly how much liquid I added - I kept adding it until the mixture looked right and gave a decent thickness of pancake.

My pancakes weren't quite as flexible as the ones we had on holiday - it was hard to get them as thin and not break them while getting them out of the pan, so I made them a bit thicker. They tasted similar enough to the genuine french ones.

We have just come back from a holiday, camping in Brittany. Highlights include the standing stones at Carnac, the old town at Concarneau, sampling the local ciders and, of course, the food. We had assorted crepes from several different cafés and restaurants and an enormous pan of moules for lunch one day.
