The most common pancakes are cinnamon pancakes and the buckwheat pancakes. Buckwheat pancakes are the healthiest, vegan and gluten-free one among the most other alternatives of it. Buckwheat gives you fluffy and highly customizable pancakes. You can have it for your brunch, breakfast, snacks or any time of the day with maple syrup poured over it.
You will find a number of pancake mixes in the market. But, they aren’t as healthy and filling as the buckwheat pancakes. These taste quite different from the other pancakes as they are prepared from the buckwheat flour. You can also have them by pouring some vegan custard over it or some Bechamel sauce, both of which enhance the taste of the buckwheat pancakes.
How to Prepare the Buckwheat Pancakes
For the ones who haven’t heard about the term, must be wondering what is buckwheat and how are the pancakes made of it. Here, I will solve all your queries. Buckwheat is a gluten-free seed which as a whole is called buckwheat groats while you can also get them as flour. This buckwheat flour is very healthy as it is high in fiber, requires low amount of sugar to be blended in and have very low amount of carbs in it. This makes our pancakes healthy yet, they are very tasty. Now, Let’s have a look at the recipe of it.
- 1 & ½ Cups of Buckwheat flour
- 1 Tsp of Baking powder
- ¼ Tsp of Baking Soda
- 1 & ½ Cups of Cruelty-free milk (I have used Almond milk here)
- 1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil
- 2 Tsp of Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
- 2 Tbsp of Maple syrup
Step 1: Take a medium-sized bowl, add almond milk, oil, vanilla extract and maple syrup and keep it aside for some time
Step 2: Now, take another bowl (larger than the previous one), add buckwheat flour, baking powder and baking soda and blend it well
Step 3: Once all the dry ingredients are mixed in the large bowl, make a well in the center of the bowl and pour in the mixture prepared in the step 1.
Step 4: Stir and mix all the ingredients together and make sure there are no lumps in the mixture. This will form a slightly thick batter
Step 5: Now, take a pancake griddle and let it warm for a minute with oil under medium flame
Step 6: Now, pour around 1/4th Cup of the prepared pancake mix over the oil and make a round shape of it using your spoon
Step 7: Let it cook on the griddle till the bubbles are formed and then change the side by moving it upside down (in the initial stage it will take around a minute or 2 to heat and when turned upside down, it takes around half a minute)
Step 8: Same form you can prepare pancakes with the rest of the batter and pour in some buttercream over it for kids
You will get around 8-11 pancakes with the above mentioned ingredients. If some of you would like to have something more sweet than you can try out the vegan date pudding or if you want to try out a healthy dessert than you can go for the rhubarb cake.
