Buckwheat Sourdough Pancakes, 70’ Cereal 

Buchwheat Sourdough Pancakes are made with buckwheat flour. A relatively new to me flour. I went on a quest to find more information on buckwheat and was pleasantly surprised. Buckwheat grouts and buckwheat in general, is not only good for you, it is packed full of delicious flavor.

Bulk Foods Store

I recently went to The Bulk-Priced Food Shoppe located in Greenville WI. While there, I bought some Buckwheat Flour. I have never used Buckwheat Flour before so I was anxious to make something using Light Buckwheat Flour. The first thing that came to my mind was pancakes. I’m not really sure why. It might be because when I was growing up, I had buckwheat pancakes for the first time at a friends house or maybe it was because my favorite cereal was growing up was called “Buc Wheats”

Pancakes It Is

I decided to make Sourdough Buckwheat Pancakes
with the light buckwheat flour I picked up. I have to admit, they were really delicious. Actually sourdough buckwheat pancakes far exceeded my expectations. We really liked the buckwheat and sourdough flavor combination that the pancakes had. We enjoyed the pancakes with sliced banana’s, maple syrup and whipped cream. Delicious!!

BucWheats Cereal

Buc Wheats was a cereal made by General Mills in the ’70’s. I’m not sure how much “Buckwheat Flour” or “Buckwheat” was in Buc Wheats Cereal but loved I loved them. On the box of Buc Wheats cereal is claims that they’re made “With a Snap of Maple Flavor”  I sure loved that cereal and was so sad to see it go.

Do you Remember?

Do You Remember Buc Wheats Cereal? What was your favorite kind of cereal when you were growing up? Was it: Clackers, Sugar Jets, Kaboom, Cookie Crisp, Waffelos, Quisp, Ice Cream Cone Cereal, Donutz Cereal, Sir Grapefellow, or Crispy Critters Cereal!

What is Buckwheat Flour?

Buckwheat Flour is flour ground from Fagopyrum esculentum, more commonly known as Buckwheat.
It has a rich, nutty flavor and a very high nutritional value, making it popular everywhere, especially in Asia. In addition, it’s gluten free. People with gluten intolerance seek it out as a flour alternative.

Buckwheat is Actually a Fruit?

Although Buckwheat is treated as a grain, Buckwheat is not a cereal or grass but actually a fruit, closely related to wild rhubarb. The grain-like fruit of Buckwheat is what is harvested and eaten after the hard outer husk has been pulled away.
The plant thrives in poor growing conditions and matures quickly, two things which make it a popular choice of crop around the world. The name “Buckwheat” comes from a Dutch word that means “Beech Wheat”

In Addition

In addition to making flour, people crack it into grouts and steam or boil them in puddings and porridge. Buckwheat is planted as a cover crop for beekeeping, since it produces a high volume of flavorful nectar. Next time you see Buckwheat Flour in your area pick up a bag and give it a try.
