Buckwheat Apple Pancakes

These apple-studded pancakes get full, rich flavor from buckwheat flour, warm spices, sour cream and a good dose of vanilla. We liked them made with tart Granny Smith apples, but if you prefer a combination of tart and sweet, use a mix of Granny Smiths and Golden Delicious. Serve warm with brandy-soaked dried cherries or honey-apple compote.




Don’t prep the apples in advance; the fruit will discolor if left to stand for too long. After draining the sugared apples, dry them well; removing excess moisture keeps the pancakes from becoming soggy. Don't press too firmly on the apple pieces after scattering them onto the pancakes; you want to embed them in the batter without deflating the pancakes.
