Print Recipe


  • 2 cups buckwheat flour (330 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons salt (or to taste--see Recipe Notes)
  • 3 1/3 cups water (750 ml)
  • 1 egg (or substitute)


  • Mix flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add water gradually by adding in 1/4 - 1/2 of the total amount each time, stirring well after each addition.
  • Add the egg or substitute.
  • Cover batter and refrigerate for 1-2 hours (optional. I've, opted not to do this when I am in a hurry. For best nutrition, soak the buckwheat mixture prior to adding the egg).
  • Ladle batter onto a prepared skillet, greased as necessary.
  • Cook until galette starts to brown.
  • Flip galette over and cook on the other side.


You can soak the flour and liquid overnight as well, and the pancakes will turn out quite a bit thicker. See How and Why to Soak Grains.
