This Buckwheat Pancake recipe is just a variation of the regular Sourdough Waffles posted on my site. I just substituted one cup of Buckwheat flour that I ground myself instead of cup of all purpose flour. Here is the recipe:

Sourdough Buckwheat Pancakes: Add together in first bowl:

  • 2 cups active sourdough starter
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup milk(or instead, use one cup warm water + 1/2 cup dry milk)
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar or use 2 Tablespoons of malt syrup (malt syrup is preferred)
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • In second bowl mix together:
  • 1 &1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of Buckwheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder

To have the fluffiest pancakes, wait to stir the wet and dry ingredients until just before putting on the griddle (heat your griddle first).

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, add more water if batter is too thick

Cook on a hot griddle (about 350) and eat!

This recipe works with all starters, yet is best with Alaskan Sourdough Starter

    My grandmother made the best sourdough buckwheat pancakes. She would put a cube of yeast in a crock bowl at night, stir in milk and buckwheat and by morning it would fill the bowl. She always used a little “starter” (left over from the day before) and start the process all over again.

    I tried this method and the batter had a pink tinge to it. I do not have any sour dough starter. How do I start my own?

    I just made these pancakes – wow! They were TERRIFIC. The light and fluffy pancakes of my dreams. I might like a slightly stronger “sour” note, so next time might mix the flour with the starter the night before and let it ferment a bit before finishing the job in the morning. Also tempted to up the buckwheat a bit. Oh but why do I always feel compelled to tweak things that already so good? Thanks for this.
