Blueberry Buckwheat Pancake Recipe

Blueberry Buckwheat pancake

What do we do when we move in to a new home? We decorate it isn’t it. It took five months for us to finally set things right. Our home feels complete after we installed the natural shades and put some wall hangings. We printed few of my good scenic pictures and put them in a photo frame to create our own pocket friendly wall hangings. After all these cosmetic changes I can now call it a home sweet home.

We have only 3 choices for our weekday breakfast and it is limited to wholegrain bagels, bread or Oatmeal.  Sometimes it feels boring to eat the same thing again and again. And Recipes like this are of real help to manage the crazy weekdays. I prepare the batter a day before and make warm pancakes in the morning. To make it more nutritious I add vitamin and antioxidants rich fresh fruits like blueberry, strawberry or blackberry. Also you can refrigerate this batter for couple of days and prepare pancakes with different fruits of your choice.

How it tasted?

If you think buckwheat and wholewheat pastry flour will yield heavy pancakes then you are totally wrong. These pancakes were soft and fluffy.  Though it doesn’t sound like a conventional recipe, these pancakes are to die for.

I don’t know if you like those bursted blueberries in the pancake. To me it is the best way to eat blueberries.
