    Buckwheat flour

    Shop Now
    Has anyone ever used buckwheat flour; I'm trying to bake something with it but I don't know how to work with it in terms of ratios and how it behaves with other ingredients.

    I made pancakes with it. It's pretty gross. I say bake with regular flour but only once a year

    Really? Just the pancakes that tasted bad and have you tried something else with it, cause I've tried buckwheat toast and soba noodles and they tasted great.

    Chris Kresser has a post about a recipe for buckwheat pancakes:
    Sourdough buckwheat pancakes – now they’re even fluffier!

    I found buckwheat pancakes to be horrendous too. And I LOVE soba noodles.

    Hi Solstice! I'd be happy to get that GF mix recipe if you don't mind.

    Ditto. I adore soba noodles (ate them daily when in Japan for 3 weeks... so much tastier than udon!) but have always disliked buckwheat flour.

    Coconut and almond flour, people. Seriously -- awesome flavor, fun textures, no one will complain. And I'm a damn picky eater.
