Buckwheat & Spelt Loaf
Prep time
Cook/wait time
Total time
A loaf with quite a distinct buckwheat flavour, very nice for hearty sandwiches. This makes a small loaf of two cups of flour, for a medium loaf, just add 1 cup of flour and ⅓ of all other ingredients. Please note total cooking time is without rising time :-)
Prepared by:
Recipe type: bread
Cuisine: vegan
You need
  • 1 cup of wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 cup of buckwheat flour
  • 1¼ tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 3 tsp dry yeast
  • 3 tsp guar gum (or xanthan)
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2.5 tbsp olive oil
To do
  1. add yeast to ½ cup of warm water, let sit for 10 minutes
  2. in your food processor (with dough blade) mix all dry ingredients
  3. with a running motor, slowly add oil, then yeast mixture
  4. carefullly add the rest of water until the dough becomes a ball
  5. transfer to a lined oven tray, sprinkle a bit of flour on top and some pips as well
  6. let it rise in a warmish spot, if possible, covered with a tea towel, for about 1 hour and 15 min.
  7. bake in oven at 200C till it sounds hollow when you tap it with a knife, in about ½ hour.
Let the bread cool down a little before you slice it.

I made the dough for this bread in the kitchen machine, but of course you can use a bread maker, which will probably give you a lighter texture. I just went for the quickest way ;-)
