Gluten-free buckwheat bread recipe:
I am a bread lover, almost obsessed with it. So when bread was taken away from me because of my gluten intolerance i knew that very moment that i had to first get the bread back into my life. I started experimenting and haven’t stopped since.
Most gluten-free #breads have a lot of starch content, i don’t really have any problem with that and infact sometimes the starchy white breads really taste good, but then i also wanted to make breads that could give me nutrition. #buckwheat is great for health, and plz don’t get confused, buckwheat is not related to wheat atall. Buckwheat is nutrient-packed and gluten-free and has been abundantly consumed in Asian countries for centuries. The buckwheat flour that we get in India is slightly darker in colour, and very bland in taste. So whenever you use this flour, make sure you add the seasoning properly.

- When you have baked the bread close to 60 minutes, take the bread off the container and now place it back in the oven and let it bake for 10-15 minutes. This will help brown the bread evenly.
