- Mix together the egg, milk, buckwheat flour and baking powder until smooth and lump-free. The mixture should be thick, but you should still be able to pour it.
- Pour the oil into a good quality, non-stick frying pan on and heat on a medium flame.
- When the fat is hot, add about a quarter of the mixture at a time. Flatten it out by tilting the pan and using a spatula if necessary. Wait about 2-3 minutes before flipping it over. Let it cook on the other side for about 1-2 minutes before moving it to a plate and repeating for the next pancake.
Chose any of these delicious fillings
- Tomato and Mushroom – simply fry mushrooms in oil until they are tender, before adding small pieces of tomato, chopped up fresh basil and chives.
- Ham and Cheese – top your prepared pancake with a few slices of ham and some grated Emmenthal cheese. Sprinkle on a teaspoon of chopped, fresh chives and roll the pancake up.
- Blueberries and Bananas – this combination is both naturally sweet and healthy at the same time. The blueberries can be chopped up and blended into your uncooked pancake mix, perhaps with a little vanilla extract. Otherwise, you can simply eat them as a topping, where they go very well with chopped slices of banana.
- Blueberries and Maple Syrup – either mix the blueberries with the other pancake ingredients, which may be the best option if they are from frozen, or you can serve them sprinkled on top of the cooked pancake. Add maple syrup if you fancy a bit of added sweetness.
- Brazil Nuts, Bananas and Maple Syrup – another delicious combination involves cutting up Brazil nuts into tiny fragments and sprinkling them on top of your pancakes, along with slices of banana and a tablespoon of maple syrup. This sweet and healthy combination will make you wonder why you ever used to add sugar to your pancakes.
