Many think that buckwheat is a grain. However, it does not grow like typical grassy grain plants (think wheat). It is more like a fruit, and in fact is related to the rhubarb plant. Buckwheat plants produce seeds which are eaten or ground into a dark, grainy-like flour.
Traditionally, buckwheat pancake yeast mix had to raise overnight. But Stanton’s hearty, dark-grain pancakes are special, as they may have been the first mix created in the late 1800s (according to our lore) that was self-rising — to which you only had to add water. No yeast, buttermilk, eggs, or oil.
