Spelt and buckwheat pancakes

For 4 persons :

  • 2 cups buttermilk*
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour

Mix these 3 ingredients well in a bowl, cover with a dishcloth, and allow to sit on the counter overnight.

In the morning : add 1 egg and mix well.  Dissolve 2 tsp. baking soda in ½ cup boiling water and incorporate into the pancake mixture.

Cook the individual pancakes in a cast iron frying pan set on medium heat (avoid teflon type frying pans).

*Buttermilk can be found with the dairy products in grocery stores. It is made up of milk to which a culture has been added, a bit like for yogurt, and which makes milk more easily digestible.
