May 19, 2021 Michał Pelc

Buckwheat pancakes are an instant recipe for delicious buckwheat pancakes. They are neutral in taste, so you can prepare them the way you like, sweet, dry or spicy. They are gluten free pancakes, but nonetheless they do not break and are bouncy and can be rolled up.

How to prepare buckwheat pancakes?

  • Pour a glass of buckwheat (170g) into a bowl, pour lukewarm water and leave for at least 8 hours.
  • After soaking, rinse the groats in a strainer and pour them back into the bowl.
  • Add a glass of lukewarm water, a pinch of salt and blend the groats
  • Add another portion of water - 1/4 cup and blend again
  • The dough will come out watery and lumpy. It's supposed to be like that, don't worry
  • Preheat the pan well and brush the minimum amount of fat with a brush, e.g. unscented coconut oil or clarified butter
  • Pour enough dough to cover the entire pan
  • Fry until practically all of the dough is solid and turn the side of the pancake around
  • Serve with your favorite toppings


If you want to make pancakes for breakfast, pour water on the porridge the day before going to bed, and for dinner, in the morning before going to work.

To prevent the pancakes from sticking to the pan, heat it up strongly. After a few pancakes, you can reduce the power of the burner as the pan may get too hot.

You can add fat every 2 pancakes, just brush the pan with a brush with a minimum amount of fat.
