saturday practice

eating a big breakfast at home.

buckwheat banana bread. no wheat recipe. yay! I think buckwheat (which is apparently a fruit seed) is my favorite alternative flour to wheat. I also like how it turns dark when baked, makes me think of chocolate.

recipe taken from here. A good not so sweet tasting quickbread.

I forgot to add salt last night when I made this, but it didn't seem to affect it at all. Plus the dough was well behaved and not a sticky gooey mess as with my first spelt challah attempt. Nothing like winter blahs and apartment hunting stress to make me want to bake.


  1. I love buckwheat, we use to cook it as rice at home but I had no idea there is buckwheat flour until very recently. You gave me a great idea! :)

  2. wow. never thought of buckwheat as a grain to cook. i will look for that! thanks.
