For all the talk about buckwheat pancakes I've been hearing of late, I've found relatively few recipes for them. Do you have a favorite recipe?

  1. There's a buckwheat buzz? Old-fashioned breakfast variety or hors d'oeurves blini?
    Or something in between?

      1. re: RosePearl

        Do you use the same malt powder one would use if making malted milk?

      2. And never, never use that corn syrup crap. Real maple syrup or sugar or honey or just butter or jam or whatever, but Mrs. Butterworth and her minions are evil.
