In this article, I share my favourite recipes that I love baking with buckwheat flour. I have been baking with buckwheat for over 15 years. I first started baking with buckwheat flour after a decade of being gluten-free, it has a distinct nutty flavour and works well with fruit, nuts and buckwheat flour in pancakes.
What is Buckwheat flour?
Even though buckwheat has the word wheat in its name, it is not wheat flour. Buckwheat seed is part of the rhubarb and sorrel family, the buckwheat kernel is actually the seed of a flowering fruit.
Buckwheat is one of the healthiest, nuttiest, and most versatile whole grains. It is a wheat-free and grain-free flour so it is naturally gluten-free. It looks a little greyish greenish. Most brands mill their flour so it is okay for baking. Meaning it is good and texturally pleasing.
