1/2 Photos of Buckwheat Pancakes (Yeast Method)
this is one of my adopted recipes. Based on the reviews, I have not made any changes. The original submitter said this was her mother's recipe for buckwheat pancakes. You have to start the night before, but the result is well worth it. You even have the possibility of using a starter like with sourdough. (Prep time does not include overnight period.)

- 1Combine flours and salt.
- 2Soften yeast in warm water; stir in 1 tablespoon brown sugar.
- 3Stir this liquid into the dry ingredients and mix well.
- 4Be sure to use a large enough bowl so that your bowl is no more than half full at the beginning to allow plenty of room for rising.
- 5Cover and let stand overnight at room temperature.
- 6Next morning, stir batter, then add remaining sugar, the baking soda and oil and mix well.
- 7If you want to try using a starter next time, reserve 1 cup of batter (it will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator).
- 8Fry the remaining batter in a lightly greased frying pan or griddle (I prefer cast iron) as you would for regular pancakes, turning once.
- 9To use starter:.
- 10When you are ready to prepare the recipe again, place starter (all of it) in a large bowl (see warning, step 4 above).
- 11Add 2 1/4 cups warm water, 2 1/4 cups flour, and 1 1/4 cups buckwheat flour and stir until smooth.
- 12Cover; let stand overnight as before.
- 13Next morning stir batter, then add 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoons soda and 2 tablespoons oil.
- 14Repeat steps 7 and 8 above.
