The nutritious and gluten-free Buckwheat Flour is widely available from supermarket stores these days. It’s a little tricky to make bread using only Buckwheat Flour which has no gluten, but this recipe is super easy and you can make rather moist Buckwheat Bread. The dough is very soft and runny. You may wish to add extra ingredients such as seeds and nuts.
*Note: Please note that this bread has quite dense texture and it is not a fluffy bread. You may wish to add some Baking Powder. Replacing a portion of Buckwheat Flour with regular Bread Flour is an option to make softer bread.
