Ployes are delicious!! I know you can find a pretty decent bag mix, made in Maine, ont he shelves of Hannaford and Shaw's.
Never had them made with bananas though- sounds tasty.

I wish I had seen this site years ago. So many wonderful things you can not get down here. The one thing that I miss the most is hotdog rolls. The kind that you get in Maine cut down the middle from the top. They look like tiny sub rolls down here and do steam like the ones in Maine.

Wink Ployes

Happy Day to all. Our favorite ploye recipes is as follows.
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk

Mix all together, and put in a hot fry pan. You are not suppose to turn these but i do. Serve with butter, syrup, brown sugar, or even mollasses. I have to be different. I love them with whipped cream and strawberries.

I'm no authority, but I think Ployes are an Acadian food. That's one reason you will find them on plenty of breakfast tables in Northern Aroostook. There is a farmer in Fort Kent that mills buckwheat and packages it into a Ploye mix that's sold in Hannifords and probably Shaw's as well.

There was an article in the New York Times about the Bouchard family. Google "acadian farmers rediscover a staple" and you'll learn all there is to know about ployes.

I agree...the hotdog rolls in Maine ROCK. It makes so much more sense to cut them from the top. Also, the Ployes sound delicious. I have seen the mix in Hannaford's, and I think I'll have to try these out.

Most people use water but i have always used buttermilk. They seem to come out fluffier. Let them set for 5 minutes after mixing. We love them.

Exclamation The real Brayon Ploye!

If you know where ployes come from, the Madawaska region, aka Edmundston and upper Maine, or if you've ever been to the Brayon Festival La Foire Brayonne, you would probably agree that they have the best ployes, hence the best tasting ployes ever.

Here is my truly brayonne ploye recipe! Enjoy!!!

This makes about 8-9 medium size ployes, double it if you need more.

Heat a pan to medium-high heat, you know it's ready when you drizzle water in your pan and it evaporates right away.

Also boil some water you'll need it later

1 cup of Buckwheat Flour ( I do buy it at Hannaford's in Madawaska)
1/2 cup of white flour
1 tea spoon of baking powder ( add more if you want it thicker, i find this to be enough )
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of cold water.

Wisk in together, it'll make a thick paste.

Once you have boiling water;
in a measuring cup, put a kidney been size of baking soda, then fill 1/2 cup of boiling water. The boiling water will activate the soda ( which makes the ploye have holes!!)

Mix all together.

Stirring your ploye mix between each ploye is what makes it perfect! and don't forget... you never flip a ploye.

Enjoy with real butter, and cretons!

you mean crutons?? or creton, the pork spread??
i was up in the county a couple weeks ago and someone gave me a sample of thier home-made creton,,, i thought it was good,,,i didnt grow up with it, but its rich in french tradition, in certain parts of the state, it sells very well (french areas) but not so, in other areas.
