Buckwheat pancakes?
[Return to Topics]

As a single ol'timer, I like to treat myself to flappers on Sunday morn. Ran outta buttermilk pancake mix so decided to get some buckwheat mix for a change.

Man, went to 4 major grocery chain stores before found 2 lb pkg for $4 at a "gourmet" speciality grocery store. Since I only cooks fer myself, thats ok. But it didn't taste like what I remembers from years ago.

Has buckwheat lost its popularity? Or is it just my little corner of the world?

I also "splurged" for some Vermont maple syrup innna that ol'house shaped tincan, $10 fer pint. ouch.......Dell

Well, I for one happen to like flapjacks made with a small amount of buckwheat flour mixed in. Wanted some buckwheat seed to grow a "green manure" to plow down, a few years back, and local farm supply couldn't even find any seed. Guess it's not a very popular product anymore.

Hi Dell,
Down in my part of the country, we had corn cakes with home made cane syrup. The syrup is still available from local produce markets. I have about a half of bottle left that I just may do a little work on tonight. The corn cakes were better when my mother was alive to cook them on the wood stove in the mornings. A little home made butter and fig preserves or syrup. Yum Yum.
