I had some trouble with these. I think that the recipe is supposed to be more like a recipe for ployes (Arcadian buckwheat crepes). I thought the batter looked plenty thin for pancakes after adding 1 cup water, but I decided to be true to the recipe and add the 2 called for. This resulted in a thin batter and thin pancakes. I wanted pancakes though, not crepes- I added about 1/2+ cup kamut flour, which worked out fine. If I were to make this recipe again, I would make it with only half the water, because it really makes the pancakes too thin. I love the light flavor the applesauce gives these. I used real eggs instead of egg substitute. Next time I might substitute milk or soymilk for the water too, for a bit of extra richness. I used half cinnamon and half Baking Spice - copy cat Pampered chef Cinnamon Plus (#45672), which was good. After adding the extra flour these turned out well and I served with real maple syrup. Thanks for posting, I think this is a good recipe, but it needs a bit of tinkering to provide good buckwheat pancakes.
