buckwheat-oat waffles

buckwheat-oat waffles

Do you like buckwheat pancakes? Waffles? Me, not so much. But then I had them this way and I liked them.
I don't know, maybe it's the over-grainy taste that's in there? I feel as though buckwheat belongs in a bread: a honey-molasses bread. That sounds good doesn't it? I'll have to work on that one.
I found a good mix for buckwheat waffles. I added in some light brown sugar, butter, oil, cinnamon and buttermilk. Tasted good. But it really was the blueberries that tasted well with the buckwheat.
So the next time I make these, I am using a blueberry sauce, not maple syrup. If you make these, try it with a warm blueberry compote or sauce. I bet it's just fabulous.

There is no recipe. I did not write it down--made it on the fly. Sorry. But you're all smart bakers, so you should be able to figure this out if you taste as you go along and see how the batter comes together as you add in what I did (in the above photo). If you buy this buckwheat mix, remember to:

- this is based on use for 1/2 the bag, about 8-10 giant waffles.
- sub out the liquids it has on the directions with buttermilk and some oil.
- I added in the quick cook oats (about 1/2 cup) to give it a nice crunch, you don't have too.
- it did not say to add in the oil, but I did (about 2-3 TB) as the batter was very dry
- it does say to add in melted butter, I did plus a little extra
- I added in about 2-3 TB of light brown sugar to the batter
- I added in about 1 TB of cinnamon to the batter
- always always always taste- test before cooking to see what it needs.
- this batter is very lumpy and thick, that is good. Watery thin is bad.
- as I said before the maple syrup was OK, a nice warm blueberry compote would be awesome with hot waffles or even warmed up blueberry jam.

  12. I actually don't mind buckwheat...but I'm kind of a sucker for whole grains anyway. Love that nutty flavor.

    Honey molasses buckwheat pancakes/waffles? I think you're onto something.

  16. True confession: I don't like waffles. At all. But my kids do and I sure like the idea of making them something like this instead of Eggo. :)

  21. hearty! i'm not the biggest fan of buckwheat flour, but when it's acceptable to drown the resulting baked good in maple syrup, i don't mind it so much. :)

  22. These look yummy - I do like the taste of buckwheat when it's got some sweet stuff like blueberries and syrup to go with - these sound and look really yummy!

  23. These waffles sounds scrumptious, of course I love very wheaty and grainy foods. And yeah that honey-molasses bread sounds scrumptious! make that too so I can have the recipe.
