So easy to make and deliciously nutty


• 350 grams Buckwheat flour
• 1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
• 1/2 tsp Salt
• 282 ml Buttermilk (1 carton)
• A handful of seeds, linseed, sesame, poppy, sunflower, etc. or a mixture of (optional)


Set the oven to 200°C
Mix all the dry ingredients together
Add the buttermilk in 2 or 3 goes mixing well in between
If the mixture is too dry add a little water, milk or more buttermilk. A tablespoon at a time, it can easily become too wet, which would mean adding more flour !
Knead the dough into a ball, (at this stage you could roll it in the seeds) press gently down to make a domed shape. With a large knife cut a cross on the top, cutting down almost to the bottom of the loaf.
Bake in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes.
Should sound hollow when you tap the bottom !
