I’ve been having so much fun with the new WonderMill! Last weekend I milled some buckwheat and spelt flour and tried out this recipe for breakfast. The pancakes were quite flavorful, especially when served with homemade wild berry jams and jellies. The sausage in the picture below is hormone free, organic bison sausage from a local farm.
Buckwheat & Spelt Pancakes
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup spelt flour (or whole wheat or all-purpose)
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons butter
In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter.
In another bowl, mix together the spelt flour, buckwheat flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. Pour the dry ingredients into the egg-mixture. Stir until the two mixtures are just incorporated. (Add a bit more of the flour if you find that your batter is too runny.)
Heat a griddle or large frying pan to medium heat and place 1 tablespoon of butter or oil into it. Let the butter melt before spooning the batter into the frying pan. Once bubbles appear on the top of the pancakes, flip them over, and cook them on the other side for about 3 minutes. Continue with this process until all of the batter has been made into pancakes. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
