140 calories per serving 


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

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 then serve.
