Happy Shrove Tuesday! Since I was 5 years old I’ve made pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. Mostly because of my grandma Dodo. I still love to flip the pancakes like I did then, aiming to hit the ceiling and to do a double spin. But now I experiment with my ingredients and try out new recipes. This recipe is a take on a galette de sarrasin – a buckwheat galette made from scratch in my blender Vitamix Ascent A2500.
With a high powered blender like a Vitamix, making your own flour is very easy. Importantly it is also a very nutritious way to eat. Blended immediately before making your batter the kernels maintain maximum nutrition and flavour! This galette recipe isn’t just for today, it is a nutritious and tasty dish to serve as a brunch, lunch or dinner with your chosen topping any day. But whilst it is Shrove Tuesday why not indulge.
