A ploye, made with buckweat flour, is part of history and tradition for the Madawaska Valley and surrounding area. The ploye had a place of honour at the table for numerous families and would often replace the bread. A real ploye is not turned while cooking; it can be eaten with butter, molasses, sugar and maple syrup.
Mix it all and add 2 cups (500 mL) of boiling water, and 2 tsp. (10 mL) of baking powder. Cook in a hot pan on one side only.
