1 cup buckwheat flour   130 g
1/2 tsp salt   2 g
1/2 tsp baking soda   1 g
1 1/2 cup water, cold   375 mL
4 tsp canola oil   20 mL

4 eggs size large    
4 cups milk, lactose-free   1 L
8 clementines   480 g

Before you start

Preheat the oven to its lowest temperature to keep the initial pancakes warm while you are cooking some more.


  1. Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and water in a bowl. Mix well, using a whip, until the texture is smooth. Let stand in the refrigerator about 1-2 h to obtain a lighter texture.
  2. Grease a non-stick frying pan, then put it over medium heat. Pour about ¼ to ⅓ cup of the batter onto the center of the pan. Spread it rapidly, either by whirling the pan or using a spatula. After about 2 min, when the pancake turns golden-brown, flip it and cook about 1 more minute. Keep the cooked pancakes in the oven while preparing the rest.
  3. Repeat the operation with the remaing batter.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the margarine in another pan over medium-low heat and cook the eggs. Place one egg on top of each pancake then serve with a glass of milk and clementines, or other seasonal fruit.
