These are some tasty pancakes! Buckwheat is NOT wheat, it's not even related to it and is fine for celiacs or others who are sensitive to wheat gluten. So enjoy! The gluten free flour can be my recipe for gluten free flour; http://www.recipezaar.com/110497 Or just use your favorite blend of rice flours, corn starch, tapioca flour or whatever works for you. These are great with fresh blueberries sprinkled on each cake once the first side has started cooking.

I've been making these almost every Sunday for five years so I'm updating my review.<br/>These are really tasty pancakes, even better than wheat flour pancakes. For the non-buckwheat flour I use a blend of brown rice flour, potato starch and tapioca starch and we add blueberries or black currants. Sometimes I have to adjust the thickness of the batter but that's easy to do.<br/>I make four batches of the dry mixture at a time so all that's left is the wet ingredients. It makes it very quick to put together on the day.<br/>Thanks for posting the recipe.
