Buckwheat Cakes - A healthy alternative to grain pancakes and gluten free.
At night – Dissolve a pkg of yeast, in a 1/2 cup warm water, add 1 cup buckwheat flour. Let stand overnight. Next morning – add 1/2 cup buttermilk, about 1/2 cup buckwheat flour, (enough for desired thickness, more if feeding several people) 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Let stand about ten minutes (until batter begins to work). Best fried in bacon grease, but whatever shortening will do on a hot griddle.
Leave about a cup of the batter for the next day’s starter. Cover and put in refrigerator if not using next day. Repeat soda, salt, buttermilk and flour the next time.
