We're doing our annual patriotic breakfast of buckwheat pancakes with strawberries, blueberries and bananas.

This is my approximate recipe for the waffles.

2 cups buckwheat flour. We grind our own from raw buckwheat. I think it can be ground up in a blender, but I've never tried it.

1 tsp baking powder

Salt if desired. I don't bother, so I won't guess at the amount.

2 or 3 eggs, separated

1 1/2 cups milk, or more if needed. I use almond milk since we have dairy allergies

1 tbsp oil or applesauce

Strawberries, sliced

Blueberries

Bananas, sliced

Real maple syrup

You can stir some plain yogurt into the fruit mix too. I did that before we knew of our allergies


Mix together the flour and BP, set aside. Mix the egg yokes, milk, and oil and stir into the flour mix. Beat the egg whites until light and fluffy and gently fold them into the batter and cook and enjoy. Sorry I didn't get this on here yesterday.

Never have ground any flour. You really do start from scratch!!!Sound good with all the fruit, and good for you too.
Thanks for posting it.

You're welcome. It's just a simple, easy to digest meal.

I've been grinding my own grain for close to 30 years now, hard to believe. When my hubby and I met, we both had grain grinders and the same kind of waffle iron, which wasn't commonly available. It worked out very well!

Fresh ground corn is the best. I ran out of corn one time and had to buy corn flour and it was so stale tasting and bland. Now I'm having a hard time finding dried corn.

Wow!! waffle iron and grinder.

When I first married I didn't know (JUST barely) how to boil water. I had a 'joy of cooking' cookbook and try recipes from there.

I bet you could find corn on internet. Just "google" it. I might like to try some too. I know I couldn't find it around town.

I like to see the corn I buy, since the quality can vary a lot.

The couple of times our grinder has broken down, I've really missed it. I just don't realize how much I use it. I think we grind buckwheat and spelt more than anything else.

We both had done a lot of cooking before we met, both of us using whole grains and lots of fruits and vegies. My dh had never had fresh corn before he met me, so he didn't think he liked it until I gave him some out of my garden the first time. That converted him fast!
