Old-Fashioned Sour Buckwheat Pancakes
Fresh out of the skillet, these buckwheat pancakes go great with homemade sausage. This is a forgiving recipe, and each kitchen and cook seems to add a personality to the pancakes. Follow the general process, and after you have learned that, have fun!
After making desired number of pancakes, add enough buckwheat flour and buttermilk to make a batter. Cover and let stand in a draft-free place until more pancakes are to be made. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each batch of pancakes, then make more batter each time following this step. Batter may be kept at room temperature and used repeatedly for 3 weeks. If any batter is left after 3 weeks, discard it.
Substitute 1 1/2 packets active dry yeast in 1 cup warm water if preferred.
