Breton shortbread biscuits

Galette bretonne

Je vous le donne en mille, aujourd’hui c’estc’est la Chandeleur, et qui dit Chandeleur dit crêpes. Mais attention pas n’importe quelle crêpe, pour commencer voici la galette bretonne ou galette de blé noir ou galette de sarrasin mais ça c’est à vous de voir le petit nom que vous lui donnez ! Avec Monsieur, on est du genre à ne pas attendre l’occasion de la Chandeleur pour nous faire des crêpes, oui chez nous c’est un peu quand on veut les repas galette bretonne. The buckwheat pancakes are Mr.'s favorite pancakes and he loves above all to heat them in a pan with a lot of butter so that they crisp (I see two or three who recognize themselves there !). So today I share my recipe with you and I hope that tonight they will be on your table.

For the Breton pancakes, there is the debate with or without eggs, personally I have already tried without and the result was that the patties did not stick together and broke. Now I do with, but you are free to choose your side !

  • Louise

    There's nothing to say, the buckwheat pancakes are still really great ! They are very beautiful 🙂

  • Marilyn

    Thanks for the egg tip ! In my recipe there was none, the result was disappointing, the dough was too fragile…so I gave up on the idea of ​​pancakes ( thinking that you had to be Breton to succeed). It makes me want to try again !

    • Emilie

      Oh cool, I'm not the only one who had problems with this eggless dough !!! Tell me about it, Marilyne !

        Dough without eggs requires fermentation otherwise it does not hold together. Eggs, it's for people in a hurry! In my creperie, I make the dough the night before and let it come to room temperature overnight.. You can help it with a touch of baking soda. So my recipe is the same as yours., but without the eggs + 1 tbsp organic sunflower oil and a pinch of baking soda. It's lighter and more fragrant. So to make a real buckwheat pancake, no need to be breton, You just have to be patient…

    Bonjour, I have never made homemade buckwheat pancakes… It is better to only eat them salty ? or this is also done with sweet ?? Merci ! The photos are always so beautiful !

    • Emilie

      No, it also works with sweets, I love buckwheat for dessert, it’s very good !
