Buckwheat Bread

by Jill Dalton

Buckwheat Bread is a delicious way to enjoy a super healthy gluten-free bread. Even though buckwheat has the name wheat in it , it is actually not in the wheat family. Buckwheat is full of fiber, vitamins and minerals which makes it even more robust than wheat bread and has a slightly nutty flavor. The texture of the bead is soft and spongy and individual slices hold together well which makes it great for sandwiches.

I wonder if you could buy the whole buckwheat kernal unhulled and grind it yourself so it is fresher..not sure if the bullet would grind the hulls enough?

This bread looks great and easy! But I can’t have braggs – any fermented anything – especially tamari. soy etc…..is the braggs necessary? May I ask if it is needed to rise or anything or is it simply a flavour enhancer? I’ve seen it in a number of your recipes. I know it’s very healthy for many…just not me 🙂 thanks

Jill, can I use white wine vinegar insead of the apple cider or just skip it?

Yes, you can use the white wine vinegar.

Failure. The loaf came out about 1.5” tall. It sunk in the middle. I live high in the Rockies…maybe a high altitude problem. I ground hulled buckwheat groats in my flour mill and then took 2 c of the flour; maybe I should have ground 2 c of groats and used all the flour. In any case, at least the end of the loaf is tasty.

Made the version with the bought flour – fabulous bread! And so easy to make without waiting a few hours until it grows which is the case with rhe yeast based bread. Thank you so much for this recipe Jill!
