For this first day of the year, I tried something new. Yesterday, I bought some new flours at a wonderful store here in Quincy called Good Health Natural Foods. They have every type of flour you can think of, but I restrained myself and just bought two: soy and buckwheat.
They also had a bunch of nut butters and I bought sunflower seed nut butter. CapCity said it was good, so I thought I'd try it. This store has so many different cool things. You can find just about any type of natural foods or beauty products that exist. I was originally just going to buy avocado oil, but left with a big bag of goodies!
I ended up noticing the flour section, because the day before I was paging through my cookbook Pancakes From Morning to Midnight, by Dorie Greenspan. I noticed a nice recipe for Winter Buckwheat Pancakes, but did not have buckwheat flour. Suddenly the flour was right in front of me! How could I resist?
I've had an extremely lazy couple of days welcoming in 2008. I watched these two movies and highly recommend them both. I didn't bring in the year with a bang, but pancakes will do for now.
Adapted from Pancakes From Morning to Midnight
Winter Buckwheat Pancakes
3/4 cup buckwheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups vanilla rice milk
1/2 stick butter melted = 4 T
3 T honey
Combine ingredients in medium bowl with wooden spoon. I use spray oil to coat the pan, but you can use butter or oil. Heat pan and then pour batter onto heated pan to form pancakes the size that you like. When the pancakes start to bubble, turn them over with a spatula, then cook until browned.
