Embark on a culinary adventure to the Alpine regions with our Ribel recipe. This traditional dish, hailing from Switzerland, promises to bring a taste of the mountains to your table with its simple yet satisfying ingredients.


2 cups buckwheat flour (lb: 0.88, kg: 0.4)

1 cup milk

Water, as needed for consistency

Salt to taste

Butter for serving

Sugar, cinnamon, or fruit compote for garnish

Grated cheese for a savory twist (optional)

Nuts or berries for added texture (optional)


In a bowl, mix buckwheat flour with milk and a pinch of salt. Gradually add water to create a smooth, pourable batter. Heat a non-stick pan and ladle the batter onto it, spreading it thin like a pancake. Cook until the edges lift, then flip and cook the other side until golden. Repeat the process until all the batter is used. Serve Ribel hot, drizzled with melted butter and your choice of sweet or savory toppings.


Ribel is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed sweet or savory. Pair it with sugar, cinnamon, and fruit compote for a delightful dessert, or experiment with grated cheese, nuts, and berries for a savory twist.

Ribel is more than a recipe it's a connection to the Alpine landscape, bringing the wholesome flavors of Switzerland to your home.
