Buckwheat Cinnamon Raisin Bread

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!

Cinnamon Swirl


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Pour into the flour mixture along with the remaining soy milk and second half of the raisins and mix well.
  • Pour into a silicone bread pan or parchment lined bread pan.
  • Add cinnamon topping ingredients to a blender and blend until it turns into a consistent paste.
  • Pour mixture onto the top of the bread in two lines.
  • Using a chopstick or butter knife poke down into the batter, starting at one end, drag the chopstick or knife back and forth through the batter in a S motion across the entire pan to make a marbled pattern.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    1. 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.

  3. 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. ?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

      1. Thank you! I left it out and it’s marvellous!! Added a tiny bit of a vanilla stevia to the bread batter too.
        Wondering, if I could add some carob to the cinnamon swirl, have you tried?

    1. Some buckwheat flour, they grind with the hulls on which makes it a darker color. It works just the same though.

    1. low sodium soy sauce or 1/2 tsp of regular salt. Medjool dates are about twice the size of deglet dates and a little bit sweeter.

  6. Just discovered your fabulous recipe 2024 outrageously good my rasins sank to the bottom but who cares THANK YOU
