How I used my leftover buckwheat

I made those buckwheat crepes a while ago and have never used buckwheat before in anything else so I looked around for a buckwheat pancake. I actually got this off of another person's blog/ website ( and thought it looked really good so I tried it last weekend. I forgot to take a picture of it so I will just use her picture (it is way better than my picture would ever be :)

I thought they were really good- I like buckwheat pancakes! I would definitely make them again (after I eat all the leftover ones in my freezer). I put more apples and cinnamon in them.

Apple-Cardamom Pancakes


3/4 cup of buckwheat flour

3/4 cup of quick oats

1/1/4 tsp of baking powder

3/4 tsp of baking soda

1/4 tsp ground cardamom

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

about 1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 egg white

1 1/2 cups soy or rice milk

2 tablespoons oil

1 tablespoon honey

1 grated apple (I used fuji, they’re naturally pretty sweet)

Combine with a whisk the flour, oats, baking soda and powder, salt and spices into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients to the top of flour mix- milk, egg white, honey, oil and grated apple. Whisk until just incorporated.

Heat a griddle on low to medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup or so of batter on griddle. Let cook until bubbly on top and golden brown on the underside. Flip and repeat. Makes about 6-8 small to medium sized pancakes.


  1. What does buckwheat taste like? How is it different from regular flour?

  2. um... more wheaty with a hint of buck I think.
