Make the batter, then let it sit...20 minutes up to 2 hours (I can never wait that long). The buttermilk does something when you wait and makes them super-fluffy! Made the recipe as is, waited before cooking, and my GOODNESS were they good. Thanks for the great recipe!

My family loves this recipe, we make these at least once a week. We are gluten and dairy free, and substitute rice milk for the buttermilk. They can be a bit dry but are amazing and moist with a grated apple added!

Delicious, light and fluffy. We substituted date sugar for the brown sugar and 1 TBS vinegar and 1 Cup Hemp milk. I ate them without any toppings because they were so tasty. Would be great with fruit, though.

used a similar recipe from Bob's Red Mill... used milk instead of buttermilk, so did not need baking soda... now I know buckwheat flour is best used in pancakes... easy, healthy and delicious with tahini carob molasses or nutella on top...

I do not eat gluten-free, but try to cut down on gluten when I can, and these were pretty good, without having a lot of things in them I don't usually have around, like xanthan gum and soy or rice flours. Made as written, but flavor was a bit lacking so would double spices next time.

These were good, and the recipe is refreshingly simple. I have tried other gluten-free pancake recipes and this one is the best both for taste and number of ingredients. I served with warmed cinnamon spiced peaches on top, which was a nice complement to the spices in the pancakes. Thanks for posting!

Very good. Excellent recipe and very forgiving when using substitutes. I omitted the sugar and added 2 extra eggs, used regular milk or yogurt instead of buttermilk, and used melted coconut oil instead of butter. Added shredded carrots, walnuts, vanilla, and coconuts for a yummy treat for me and my picky-eater preschooler! (Who loved them!) Have made them several times now, this recipe is a keeper.

Yesterday was my first gluten free day - so I obviously don't have much experience cooking gluten free, but I made these pancakes today and they were surprisingly tasty! I did double the spices because I like extra spice and added an extra tablespoon of brown sugar. Since we can't have dairy either, I had to use almond milk instead of buttermilk. Yummy with peaches and sliced almonds!!!

These were very light and tasty. Due to budgetary constraints, I used half buckwheat flour and half rice flour. They still had a wonderful buckwheat flavor. We used strawberry preserves to top them. WHAT A TREAT!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It will be a staple in our house from now on.

Tasted alright, but I might make changes if I made it again, the pancakes didn't really have much flavor. Maybe I'll try doubling the spices...
