My friend Linda came to Esalen Institute when I taught 2 hands organic farm to table vegetarian cooking classes. She had a revelation after eating my buckwheat pancakes. The quick and easy gluten-free buckwheat pancakes I taught in my breakfast class were deliciously light unlike the heavy ones from her childhood memories.
Linda went home inspired. Since she is gluten-free, she subbed buckwheat flour for wheat flour in her corn bread.
Then, I got inspired to try some organic corn flour in my buckwheat pancake recipe and loved the natural sweetness corn added to the buckwheat flour.
Linda suggested that I share this information and my recipe for buckwheat pancakes because other people may want to try it
