Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes


Summer officially ended this week. However, the weather suddenly turned warmer as the seasons changed.

Right now it's about 80 degrees and a bit humid. I'm not complaining. Not at all. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to drop down to the low 60's. Although I'll be on my way to San Francisco, where it's supposed to be a bit warmer.

Last week the weather felt like fall. The leaves are changing colors. Mornings have been brisk. A serious chill permeates the night and early morning air. I took out a wool blanket and even put on the heat one night.

Plus I made pancakes one morning. Nothing says pancakes like a cold morning. I've found that I'm generally not a huge fan of buckwheat flour. The taste is a bit severe to me. But I think I found a way to play with it. I used a bit less than normally called for and added brown sugar. These pancakes were great!

I thought that I'd never buy buckwheat flour again, but I think I changed my mind. These pancakes will go into the regular cold morning breakfast rotation.

Well, I didn't leave my heart in San Francisco, but I'm looking forward to my return visit. There are so many activities lined up for BlogHer Food '09. I'm going to have to load up on coffee and ignore the jet lag.

Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes
2 eggs
2 cups vanilla rice milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 T brown sugar
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup blueberries (approx)

Combine ingredients in medium bowl. Pour batter on hot griddle. When the top bubbles up, turn over with spatula. Cook other side until browned. Enjoy hot with butter and syrup. Yum!

I just LOVE buckwheat pancake (yes, singular--I can barely manage one!), but I cannot believe how impossible it is to find a restaurant that serves that variety! Seems silly, doesn't it? I think the texture and taste is wonderful.

Your pancakes look delicious. I've gone totally wheat free lately and have been working with buckwheat flour trying to poduce delicious and heart-warming foods to reflect my eating preferences. Your recipe comes so close!! I'll remember about the brown sugar tip. Thanks!
Have fun at the BlogHer Food Conference.

Fall must be in the air-I made pancakes and put oats and cottage cheese along with raspberries into the batter this morning.

Jennifer said...

I like the inclusion of vanilla rice milk---must add a secret sweetness. Have a grand time at the conference!

Cynthia said...

I've never had anything with buckwheat flour, don't think we get it here.

About the cow's milk, no I did not try making yogurt with it. Should be really good though.

This is delicious, Anali--perfect for weekend fun-feasting--thanks for sharing! Hope the trip went week--look forward to news. :o)

nance - Some enterprising restaurants need to add buckwheat pancakes to their menus! Maybe a few different flours. I guess it's cheaper to use one type, but the variety could bring in more customers.

christine - Welcome! I hope you get to try the pancakes soon! There are so many different types of flours and it's really fun to experiment with them. Enjoy!

esme - Those sound so good! I almost bought cottage cheese last week, but then wondered what I'd actually use it for. Now you've given me another idea!

jennifer - Yes, it does add a secret sweetness! The conference was great and I'll be writing posts over the next few days. Maybe even weeks!

Anali said...

cynthia - I guess buckwheat is so heavy. I think of it more as something to use during really cold weather, so I can see why you wouldn't have it. I'm going to try the yogurt again in a few weeks I hope.

k - I think you would love to experiment with these!

parisbreakfasts - I had a great time Carol! Thanks!

tracy - Thank you! The trip did go well. I'll be be busy posting about it for at least a couple of weeks I'm sure. ; )
