Cooking Instructions: Makes 4 large pancakes
• In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl beat the egg and mix in the Glucerna liquid.
• Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. The batter may have some small to medium lumps.
• Preheat the pan over medium-low heat and brush with 1 teaspoon of butter. Give the batter a light swirl with a spoon in case the buckwheat is starting to separate from the liquid. Scoop ¼ of the batter into the warm pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and flip. Cook on the opposite sides for 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
• Transfer the cooked pancake to a plate and top with fresh fruit and yoghurt.
