  • Scald the milk before adding it to the sponge.
  • Make sure to use warm water when adding it to the sponge.

  • Substitute oat flour for buckwheat flour: This substitution will make the pancakes more nutrient-dense, as oat flour is higher in fiber and protein than buckwheat flour. It will also give the pancakes a slightly nuttier flavor.
  • Substitute honey for molasses: This substitution will give the pancakes a sweeter flavor and a more subtle molasses taste. Honey is also a more nutrient-rich sweetener than molasses, providing antioxidants and other beneficial compounds.

Coconut Buckwheat Pancakes Replace the milk with coconut milk and add 1/4 cup shredded coconut to the batter.
