These are absolutly the best buckwheat pancakes I've had in years. They are slightly crisp on the outside and spongy and cake-like on the inside. I've been looking for the perfect recipe for years and this is it! My grandmother used to make these for me when I was a little girl and when I asked her for her recipe, she said it was from a "mix" that she could no longer find. FYI - if you're using an electric griddle, I set mine to 325, which worked perfectly. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!

These are excellent and a great hit with the guys I fed. =) The starter idea is great. Will try it next time. Loved the brown sugar in this recipe. It set off the flavor of the nutty buckwheat perfectly. Thanks for posting!

Sorry,but I did not feel it correct to apply stars when I made too many changes,and it would not be fair to the poster,grandmalscooking. Without the buckwheat flour,I decided to use wholewheat.The batter was really stiff,and I added more water so as all the flour would be at least a bit wet.Not sure how much I added but think it would have been about another cup and a half. The finished product was good even though I did add a bit more water to make a bit fluid. Purchased some buckwheat later in the day and put this to work,in the end I did not use as this also was much too stiff for the way I felt it shoud have been,you need to pour this onto the griddle,so it has a chance to spread and cook.Respectfully Don Steele

This recipe is absolutely FABULOUS! This was my first time making and eating buckwheat pancakes and I was very impressed. The best part is that the recipe is Vegan! I had mine with a little vegan butter (Earth Balance) and real maple syrup.
