  • 1 1/4 cups  buttermilk or sour milk*
  • 3 tablespoons  butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup  buckwheat flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt

1. Whisk buttermilk, butter, and egg together in bowl until blended. Combine flours, soda, and salt in another bowl. Whisk buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients until just blended.

2. Heat large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Grease lightly with vegetable cooking spray. For each pancake, spoon scant 1/4 cup of the batter into skillet, spreading batter lightly with back of spoon. Cook until bubbles form on surface of pancakes, about 2 minutes.
