Buckwheat Pancakes

These Buckwheat pancakes are made with yeast, thereby making them
light and fluffy and melt in your mouth tender . They do require an
hour to rise so start the batter at least 1 1/2 hours before you plan
to serve.

1 c buckwheat flour
1/2 c unbleached or wholewheat pastry flour
1/2 pkg active dry yeast ( 1 1/2 teas )
1/2 teas salt ( optional )
1 1/4 c very warm water ( about 100 f )
1/2 teas baking soda
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 c very warm water

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F, then turn it off. In a large bowl, mix
buckwheat and unbleached flours, the yeast, and salt.  Stir in 1 1/4 c
of warm water and beat until smooth. Cover the bowl with a plate and
place in preheated oven to rise until very bubbly, about 1 hour. ( be
sure oven temp is off ! )

Dissolve the soda and molasses in 1/4 c of very warm water and add it
to the buckwheat batter. Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle. Mist
lightly with a vegetable spray. Pour small amounts of batter onto
heated surface and cook until puffed and bubbly. Turn and cook the
other side about 1 minute. Serve immediately with your desired

p.s. - I am a dedicated buckwheat lover ! Such a robust flavor !  I also add
a shake or two of ground ginger and cinnamon to mine.
