Buckwheat Cakes

  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 1/2 cake yeast, dissolved
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • Buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
The general idea is that you have to mix buckwheat with white flour to make good cakes but they are excellent made with buckwheat alone.

Pour the warm milk into a mixing bowl. Add the dissolved yeast. Stir in as much buckwheat flour as will make a medium batter. Add salt and molasses. Set the batter aside to stand overnight.

When you awake the next day, when ready to bake, dissolve the baking soda in boiling water. Stir it into the batter and beat for a few minutes (be patient, you rascal).

Bake the cakes, turning them just once.
