My Yummy Valentine

Today I was jonesin’ for some pancakes. Actually I’ve been wanting pancakes for breakfast for several days now. While at the health food store this weekend I picked up some buckwheat flour; I was inspired by a post I remembered reading a while back on Free to Eat. I contacted Lynn for some advice on making these, consulted with my copy of the Joy of Cooking, and made a few modifications. And today I was rewarded with some scrumptous gfcf buckwheat pancakes. Zoe is not home from school yet to try them, but Ayden has already eaten two of them. Considering that he’s 3, I thought he’d hate them: after all, how many three-year-olds out there like buckwheat? But he really enjoyed them, and told me that I was “a good cooker.”

Gluten Free/Casein Free Buckwheat Pancakes

1 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 cup rice flour

1-1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 Tbs. sugar

1-1/2 cup almond milk

3 Tbs. canola oil

3 Tbs. molasses

2 eggs

1/2 tsp. vanilla
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and whisk until combined–do not overmix. Pour by 1/4 cupfuls onto preheated and greased griddle. Serve hot with maple syrup.

    Molasses and almond…NO wonder he said “GOOD COOKER” the flavors together sound amazing. And the pic should be on the cover of a cookbook.YOU ROCK!

    Thanks Lynn. And I really appreciate your input on this recipe–my son should be calling you a “good cooker” too.

    Yum! I made buckwheat pancakes on Sunday for my blog and they turned out so terrible I had to throw ’em out. I will try your recipe some time and hopefully fare a bit better 😉

    Those look fantastic! I always like to see examples of pancakes made without cake mix. I’ll have to try that recipe!
