This occupies a place of choice in our community. The Ploye looks like a pancake but is prepared with buckweat flour. It is used in place of bread. If you come from Northern New Brunswick and you are a BRAYON, it is a common thing to eat and is delicious. I posted it here so I would'nt loose it. After they are cooked, we spread butter on, roll them up and eat them that way. Some people like to finish a meal with one of these ploye drizzled with molasses as a dessert.
- Mix dry ingredients.
- Add 2 cups cold water to the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Let stand 5 minutes.
- Add 1 cup boiling water and mix vigorously.
- If batter looks too thick, add a little bit of cold water.
- Pour batter as you would a pancake in cast iron skillet (the best) or I have used a breakfast plate to cook mine (you can make more than one at a time) and they came out very good. Let the ploye cook, you will see little holes come up everywhere, the more holes, the better your ploye is.
- When you see that the mixture is not liquid anymore, your ploye is ready. Only cook on one side, a ploye is NOT to be turned to cook.
- To really have good Ployes you have to mix your batter between each ploye.
