I also used whole wheat flour in place of the buckwheat. They were very flat. What would improve this recipe is adding 1/2 tsp baking soda.

The proportion of buckwheat flour to normal flour (admittedly I used whole wheat pastry flour) is perfect. These did turn out rather flat, but the flavor was great. I couldn't resist and used half milk and half water and my sugar substitute of choice was Sucanat, which isn't a no-calorie sweetener, but rather dehydrated cane juice- in essence, sugar with all its nutrients still intact. I was worried about the thinness of this when I first mixed it up, but it was much thicker after the 10 minute sitting period. Very tasty, very healthy pancakes! Thanks for a nice breakfast.
