This savory pancakes are a wonderful base for the Creamed Oysters and Ham.

Yield: Makes about 24 small pancakes


  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup clarified butter


In a mixing bowl, sift together all of the dry ingredients.  In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs and mix in the buttermilk and then ¼ cup of the butter.  Fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and blend well.  Cook the cakes on a well-buttered griddle.

Pour a little of the remaining clarified butter over each pancake and portion the Creamed Oysters and Ham over the stacks.


As the mixture sets, it thickens. You may want to add additional buttermilk to thin the batter out.
