Serves 4
If you use a nonstick skillet for these blueberry buckwheat pancakes, reduce the oil to 1 tablespoon.

  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¾ cup buckwheat flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½  teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1½  cups buttermilk (1 percent fat)
  • ¼ cup minced fresh ginger root or 1 tablespoon ginger powder
  • Blueberry syrup topping
  1. Sift the flours, baking powder, soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add the remaining ingredients in order, using 1 tablespoon of oil. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Heat half of the remaining tablespoon of oil in a heavy skillet (or use a nonstick pan with no oil) over a medium flame. Spoon about 1/8 of the batter into the pan for each pancake. Cook until the bottom is golden.
  3. Flip and cook the opposite side. Remove and place on a warm platter; repeat with the remaining batter.
