Buckwheat Cinnamon Raisin Bread

by Jill Dalton

One of my favorite things to eat with breakfast is a piece of Buckwheat Cinnamon Raisin Bread toasted with a slather of peanut butter. The sweet cinnamon date swirl compliments the earthy flavor of the buckwheat bread perfectly. Breakfast just got a whole lot better!

I accidentally hit four stars and can’t change it to five! Love your bread recipes and want to see more! Your Irish Soda bread is amazing so I make two loaves at a time. I don’t east sodium and use these substitutions for the same result in all your recipes..
Baking Soda and Potassium Bicarb can be substituted equally.
1 teaspoon baking powder = ¼ tsp Potassium Bicarb + ½ teaspoon Cream of Tartar.

Question about this recipe…in your video you bake the bread for 45 minutes, but the recipe says 1 hour. Which is the correct time? Thank you.

It is 1 hour. The original recipe for just the buckwheat bread is 45 minutes so I always check it at that point but with the added cinnamon date mixture it usually takes that extra time so that it cooks through.

To make your cinnamon swirl in your bread more like you remember it, simply add half the batter to the loaf pan, then half of the cinnamon mixture, swirl. Then add remaining batter and top with remaining cinnamon mixture a swirl again. There! Now you’ll have swirl throughout when you cut into it. 😊

Jill Dalton April 6, 2022 - 5:35 pm

I haven’t tried making it that way so, honestly, I’m not sure.

Can you use whole wheat flour?

I haven’t tried using any other flours with this recipe, sorry

Can you tell me what the texture of this bread should be like after it’s cooked? The bread is in the oven now. My first with buckwheat flour recipe. One difference I see is that my buckwheat flour is darker as is the bread.

The texture is spongy like the texture of quick breads

Made this for Good Friday. It was so delicious. Didn’t feel like a healthy alternative but a special treat.
I have made the buckwheat bread before, and found it a bit sweet, so it is perfect like this.
