Sunday Brunch: Orange Butter and Buckwheat Pancakes

Ever since I started writing about brunch here, I've been searching for a buckwheat pancake recipe to fall in love with. Since this has everything to do with Almanzo Wilder (of the Little House on the Prairie series) and nothing to do with a specific taste memory from my own life, perhaps it's unsurprising that the goal has proven elusive. I think the time has come to admit that maybe I just like regular pancakes (and even some whole wheat versions) better than buckwheat.

This recipe from King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking has been the tastiest of the lot so far, and I loved the orange butter they suggested as an accompaniment. Do you have any secrets for buckwheat pancakes? I'll try another recipe if it gives me an excuse to make orange butter again.
