Amazing Pancakes

Sampson

I've been meaning to tell you about these pancakes... but with puppy sitting, my parents visiting, and some more dog sitting, I haven't had much blogging time. Didn't mean to hold out on you ;) And of course I have some more doggie photos for good measure!

So the recipe (found here) is for Kabocha Buckwheat pancakes. I don't know if it was the buckwheat flour, the spices (cardamom), or the combination of the two that put these over the top, but I was floored!!


While I didn't have buckwheat flour on hand, I did have some kasha (roasted buckwheat), which ground to a flour easily in my spice grinder (aka coffee grinder). I also used some kabocha I had already roasted (instead of grated fresh squash). I'm sure any other winter squash or sweet potato would work as well.


I can't wait to try more recipes using buckwheat flour... have you used it before? Or do you have any recommendations??

Love these latest posts on the race and the pancakes! Delicious. The dogs aren't bad either... Hopefully you'll get some time for yourself now! I owe you about a million favors, so feel free to cash in at any point!

I bet that kasha is equally delightful. I love using buckwheat, should experiment with your ground kasha.

Those pancakes are the most beautiful I've ever seen! So tempting, I might even try to make me own. Yums! Thanks for the inspiration :D

Mmm, cardamom! I love that spice. And it's so beautiful in pod form that I like to stop by my spice rack and just admire the jar. Now I need to follow your lead and try it in pancakes--sort of like India meets America in breakfast form?

Happy Sunday, Shannon!

Um yeah so these pancakes are awesome. Kabocha. Score. Major score.

Yay for dog sitting! You are the puppy master!

I've never had REAL buckwheat cakes, but I've heard that they're totally worth it :) And those spices sound amazing in the pancakes!

Hannah said...

Oh those look amazing! Every time I've tried using buckwheat flour previously, I was very disappointed with the results, but perhaps I should try grinding my own- It seems like that makes a big difference!

sophia said...

What a great idea to make your own buckwheat flour...and with kabocha, my favorite! These pancakes look TO DIE FOR!
