Tasty Gluten Free Buckwheat Bread

Hands up those who still think gluten free bread is tasteless and boring? Or was I the only one? The newly enforced trial diet for my partner has meant me venturing in to the world of gluten free baking, and I must admit I have learnt a lot during the past few weeks!

This simple bread recipe was my first bread baking experiment after trying a couple of delicious flourless cake recipes. I had thought the end result would be, as I suggested, boring and tasteless, but turned out I couldn't have been more wrong.

I have always loved baking bread, and I am so glad to know there are delicious gluten free bread recipes out there. This is a must try for everyone!

Tasty Gluten Free Buckwheat Bread
(Recipe by

1 1/2 cups gluten free plain flour
1/2 cup organic buckwheat flour
3 tsp gluten free baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbs caster sugar
2 egg whites
1 cup reduced fat milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3-4 tbs seed mix (pepitas, sunflower seeds, pine nuts)

Preheat oven to 180C and grease a 6cm deep, 9cm x 19cm loaf pan. Sift together the gluten free flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder and salt and stir in the sugar. Beat the egg whites until just frothy, and stir in the milk and the vegetable oil. Pour the egg white mixture into the flour mixture and beat for 2 minutes or until smooth. Pour the batter into the pan, and press the seed mix lightly into the batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean.

Stir the egg white mixture in to the flour

Pour the batter in to the pan and sprinkle with the seed mix

Et voilĂ ! Tasty gluten free bread!
