Buckwheat Pancakes

These gluten-free buckwheat pancakes are a vision of health. Enjoy them with yoghurt, berries or a drizzle of maple syrup for a breakfast treat that makes you feel good. In this recipe we have opted for the sweet version but they work well as a savoury too. Try them with cream cheese and smoked salmon or a pate. Too delicious and vegitarean too.

You can make these vegan by substituting 1 small, ripe banana (about 70g/2½oz), mashed, for the egg. Use plant-based milk. Omit the sugar and add an extra teaspoon of oil to the batter as these have more of a tendency to stick.

Buckwheat Pancakes | Vision of Health

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 rounded tbsp buckwheat flour
  • 4 rounded tbsp gluten-free plain flour
  • 1½ tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 150ml/5fl oz milk
  • 1 tbsp light olive or vegetable oil, plus extra for frying


  1. Sift the flours, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the milk and oil until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until there are no visible traces of flour.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium–high heat.
  5. When it is hot, add a drizzle of oil and carefully wipe it across the pan with a piece of kitchen paper. Use a dessert spoon to spoon the batter into the hot pan.
  6. The batter should bubble quickly.
  7. After about a minute the edges of the pancake should be set with little holes appearing across the surface.
  8. Flip the pancakes over with a spatula and cook for 30 seconds.
  9. Set the pancakes aside on a warm plate or baking tray while you cook the remaining batter in the same way, oiling the base of the pan before each batch.
  10. Serve the pancakes in a stack, drizzled with maple syrup or topped with a spoonful of yoghurt and berries

Wine Matching

Turn breakfast into a celebration. Serve Prosecco. We chose a Sacchetto Col de L’Utia Prosecco Brut 2018. Crisper and creamier than Cava, with a softer fizz than Champagne, this luxury drop has all the melt-in-the-mouth quality you’d expect from a world-famous winemaker. It’s full of fruit and delicate refreshing bubbles. Perfect for parties, weddings, or just making your Friday night fish and chip supper sing. Available from Naked Wines.
