Traditional French Buckwheat Flour Pancakes – Incredibly Light & Flavorful!

Here’s a buckwheat crêpe batter that’s absolutely marvelous for savory crêpes. This batter yields super-light crêpes, but the buckwheat makes the thin pancakes extra-flavorful and a bit different than what you’re used to. In fact, crêpes made with buckwheat go by a different name in France: galettes bretonnes. And they work amazingly well with savory flavors!

A simple and delicious way to eat them is to sprinkle them with grated cheese (an aged Gruyère or Fontina is always sublime!), warm them in a pan until the cheese melts, and then fold or roll them up. Served with a green salad, they’re perfect for a snack or a light lunch.

But you can also use this batter to make a more sophisticated main course, like buckwheat crêpes with mushrooms en persillade and goat cheese fonduta (click here for the recipe and video: )… so, so delicious!
