Savoury or sweet pancake day (depending on the filling you choose)

Buckwheat batter pancakes recipeOh, and happy Pancakes Day once again! This day is never to be missed! Last year I have made unconventional Lithuanian pancakes and they were delicious (almost made a proper meal!) . This year however I decided to keep it simple. I went with the recipe that I often make. Whenever I have some buckwheat flour in the house I would throw some in to otherwise very basic pancake batter. The cool think about these pancakes is that you can eat them savoury or sweet depending on the filling you choose.Buckwheat batter pancakes recipeBUCKWHEAT PANCAKES

  • 80g buckwheat flour
  • 120g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil + more for frying
  • about 350ml water or milk

1. Place the flour into the bowl together with eggs, sugar, salt and oil. Whisk everything together into the dry mass. While whisking begin pouring the water gradually into the flour mass (not all in one go because you might not need it all). You are aiming for a batter consistency that easily drips down the whisk when held up but still leave temporary traces when whisked. making the pancake batter2. You need to fry pancakes in well heated pan with oil (although to fry without oil is quite possible after much practicing). Pour one spoonful to the pan and immediately start swirling round the pan to get nice even layer.Buckwheat batter pancakes recipePancakes then can be eaten savoury. I like it with ham or bacon with cheese. I usually serve it with cream fresh and dill (this is such a Lithuanian thing to do!)Buckwheat batter pancakes recipeOr if you prefer it sweet then blueberries, banana, and maple syrup ticks my boxes ;-).Buckwheat batter pancakes recipeBuckwheat batter pancakes recipeHappy Pancake Day!
