Basic Buckwheat Pancake (galette)

This is a very simple way to make both gluten free and wholemeal pancakes.


  • 100 grams of plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 300 ml of milk
  • a dash of oil (I use blob of butter) for frying


Saive the buckwheat plain flour into a large bowl and make a small hole in the center and crack the eggs into the middle. Pour in the milk and whisk it together until it becomes a smooth batter. Don’t worry if there are bubbles – simply leave in the fridge for a few hours to let it settle.

Heat a grease proof pan on a low-medium heat and cover the surface with butter or oil. Use a ladle to pour a portion of batter into the centre or the pan. Use a spatula to help spread the batter evenly, making a thin layer in the pan. Cook for 3-5 minutes before flipping and cooking for 3 minutes on the other side.

And there you have it, a basic recipe for a basic buckwheat pancake. Enjoy.
