I made these buckwheat groats with both water and yogurt. Both are as sweet.
If you soak your buckwheat for a short time, there will be no need to add extra water before blending. In long soaking, the groats absorb the water.
Depending on your serving spoon, you might get more or less the number of pancakes.
Your level of heat will determine the time of cooking, and again the source of heat matters too.
Buckwheat pancakes are soft when warm, they dry out after, fold the remaining with a kitchen cloth or in an airtight container. 
You can store the buckwheat pancakes in the fridge for 4-5 days.
