Method

  1. Put the cherries in a bowl with 1 tbsp sugar, stir and set aside.
  2. Mix the remaining sugar, flours, cinnamon and bicarb in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs. Gradually whisk in with the buttermilk to make a smooth batter.
  3. Melt a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan. Add spoonfuls of batter to make pancakes about 8-10cm across. Cook for a couple of mins until set on the bottom and bubbles appear on the surface, then flip and cook the other side. Keep the pancakes warm in a low oven while you finish up the batter. Serve 2-3 piled on each plate, topped with a spoonful of cherries and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Does anyone know if you can make and freeze the batter so I can take it out of the freezer the night before ready for the morning?

I love this recipe. It is the best american pancake I have ever tasted. And in addition to this, it is very easy to make. :)

Incredibly delicious. Changes I made: I added fresh blueberries to the mixture, instead of cherries alongside. The blueberries were perfect at offsetting the slightly earthy taste of the buckwheat. These pancakes were very light and wholesome.

Liked the cinnamon but would use a smaller proportion of buckwheat flour next time as I felt it made the pancake a little on the heavy, slightly grainy side.

I made these pancakes when my in-laws were visiting. Everyone loved them! As fresh cherries were unavailable when I made it, I used canned cherries and they worked well. I reviewed this recipe on my own blog, Recipes That Worked by Mandy Higgins.
