Blackberry buckwheat pancakes, or breakfast of the under-employed, part 2
Ah, it's the Monday after March break and I guess all those teachers are feeling sufficiently rested to go to work today! So, no calls for me, but I did get a good sleep, at least until the garbage truck came by. After a cup of tea I decided to have pancakes, and I wanted to use the buckwheat flour I picked up in Montreal. So, I went searching, and found this recipe on A Whisk and a Spoon. The only changes I made were to use yogurt instead of buttermilk, omit the honey, and add a pint of blackberries. Why? Well, I didn't have any buttermilk, I usually don't put sweeteners in my pancakes because I drown them in maple syrup, and blackberries are good (and threatening to go moldy in my fridge). These were delicious--hearty and sweet and tart with the fruit and syrup. The batter was super sticky, and got stickier the longer I let it sit. The buckwheat flavour was mild, and next time I'll use more buckwheat than flour. Happy Monday!
