I find the taste of pure buckwheat pancakes too strong so I am using half all-purpose and half buckwheat flour. The pancakes can be served with syrup for breakfast, or like blinis with savory toppings such as smoked salmon and sour cream.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir all-purpose flour, buckwheat flour, sourdough starter, and milk together in a 1-quart container with a tight-fitting lid until evenly combined. Cover with lid and let sit on the counter, 8 hours to overnight.

  • Stir in eggs, butter, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt the next morning. Whisk until smooth.

  • Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Pour about 2 tablespoons of batter into the skillet for each pancake and cook until bubbles form and the tops look dry, about 2 minutes. Flip pancakes over and cook for 1 more minute.

Cook's Note:

If you don't use up all the batter, cook pancakes and reheat them later. If you let the batter sit, it will become too sour.
