My Dad just loves Buckwheat Cakes and when he lived in Canada ate them all the time, the problem in New Zealand for a long time you couldn't buy Buckwheat flour, well now you can!! He looked at about five different recipes on Zaar and has come up with this one. He made it for breakfast the other morning and this was so good served with Maple Syrup with a sprinkling of lemon juice. Just supurb, hope everyone else likes them just as much as we did
