  • Why do I like it?

This recipe makes big, fluffy pancakes and it is so easy to make.  There is no need to stand by a hot pan and fry these like conventional pancakes.  You don't need to use much syrup if any! Fresh seasonal fruits do the job.  

I kept some of the leftovers in the fridge.  They were great the following day, I had them for dessert and they tasted great cold as well!

  • Any recipe notes or tweaks?

The first time I made it I followed the directions including the oil.  The following times, I omitted the oil and it turned out fine without any oil.  I have also played around with the amount of cinnamon as my kids wanted a stronger cinnamon flavor.  

I loved serving it with fresh fruit, I used whatever I had in the house that morning!

There is also a note on the original recipe showing the difference when you grind your own buckwheat flour - the pancakes have a different color.  So if you prefer the lighter color you can grind your own flour.
