      Very good! Made them with 6TB Brown Rice flour as I am gluten free. Came out perfect. Can't remember how long ago it was that I had a buckwheat pancake, but this brought back memories, good ones! I didn't know what I was missing using the boxed pancake mixes. I love the taste of these buckwheat ones!

      Excellent. However, 1500mg is the recommended daily intake for sodium and this one serving is that and more, yikes! Will be playing with the ingredients to try and shave that number down.

      These are very good! I was a little concerned about the difference between Japanese buckwheat and that available in Canada and the US, because I have had some trouble with buckwheat recipes. For this reason, I didn't follow the recipe as to combining all the liquid ingredients and then adding them to the dry ones. Instead I added the egg, butter and only part of the buttermilk to the dry ingredients. As I had expected, 1 cup would have been too much liquid. I needed only about 1/2 cup. I do think this is an ingredient-related, rather than recipe-related problem. The pancakes tasted fine and disappeared quickly. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.
