Reviews forButtermilk Buckwheat Pancakes
"Great pancakes. Something everyone can eat, both those who can eat wheat and those who are gluten free. To make it easier I just add pumpkin pie spice instead of the separate spices. I also used homemade kefir instead of buttermilk (just because that is what I had) They turned out fluffy and light."
"love all the flavors. I can use 1/2 buckwheat, 1/2 whole wheat and family loves them. Also coconut oil instead of butter lets you use less sugar. Really great taste - a hit with fruit and ham - thanks"
"Hubby who is gluten free loves these for breakfast. Serve with warm syrup and fresh fruit. Have even put blueberries in them."
"top score with a slight alteration ;)"
"I didn't like the brown sugar and spices in this. I like to taste the buckwheat. I use a little molasses to sweeten and like it best with yeast."
