When I began this gluten free journey, one of the first sites I discovered was Buckwheat Pete's. I bought his e-cookbook and set about to learn the breadmaking technique he believed in. Well, I enjoyed it but started other cooking and baking attempts and got to buying gluten free products so I must have lost the site and the print out of the process after that.
The other day I decided to get in contact again and ordered another e-cookbook from Buckwheat Pete since I am concentrating on buckwheat and not grains now that I know it is helping me with my automimmune disease, Hashimoto's. The book does include recipes with rice flour but I am trying to stay away from grains and buckwheat is not a grain.
I made a loaf of buckwheat bread by Pete's process this afternoon and was so pleased. It was a lot of fun for me too. I won't share the recipe and process but if you are interested hop on down to buckwheatpete.com and check it out. Enjoy the pics.
PS I used buckwheat flour and tapioca starch flour, salt, and the baking powder per ingredient list, but substituted olive oil for the sunflower oil and Agave syrup for the honey.
