  • A group Toppings
How to make it:
  1. Place Buckwheat (husked) in a blender or food processor and gradually add water until of a creamy consistency (if you like thick pancakes make the consistency thick - the thinner consistency goes a little crunchy on the edges which is quite nice).
  2. Please note, the consistency will not look like normal pancake mixture. It looks like it is - buckwheat and water blended.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet (or heavy based pan) and pour the buckwheat into the center and spread (as if making flour pancakes).
  4. Brown both sides. Top with maple syrup, tahini, jam or lemon juice.
  5. Very different but very very delicious!
