- Ready In:
- 2 cups buckwheat flour (farine de sarrasin in French)
- 1 cup white flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups cold water
- 1 cup boiling water
- 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.

I live in New Brunswick Canada. My passion is collecting recipes. I love to cook although I do not have much time for it, but looking forward to my retirement so I can do it more often. I love elegant dinners for guests.
