1 cup of buckwheat flour
1 ˝ cups of white flour
2 ˝ cups (appx.) of boiling water
2 teaspoons baking powder
˝ teaspoon of salt
If batter is not rising (bubbles don’t appear) add a little bit of baking soda (˝ teaspoon).

Mix together dry ingredients with cold water until there are no lumps.

Add boiling water and mix well, incorporating as much air as possible (that will help with the bubbles!)

Batter should be thick, but the consistency of the batter should not be too thick, so add water if necessary until it has the consistency of pancake batter. Spoon batter onto a hot skillet. Cook until the bottom is a little crispy and the top is dotted with bubbles and dry to the touch, you shouldn’t flip the ployes. Serve warm with butter or anything else you’d like to try them with!

Serving ideas:
Spread with butter and brown sugar and roll
Spread with butter and maple syrup
