Gluten-free bread: for those with celiac disease, here is the recipe for making good bread at home in a simple, economical way and without the use of a mixer.
Bread is one of the most popular and consumed foods in the world and alas the first to be eliminated in the gluten free diet. Fortunately, thanks to the flours available on the market, you don't necessarily have to give up the pleasure of a slice of bread. We can make tasty and gluten-free bread at home with our oven.
Gluten-free bread: why buckwheat?
The web offers many gluten-free bread recipes in different variations. However, most of these recipes include ingredients that are expensive and difficult to find or that require complex processing. Those who are unfamiliar with doughs can prepare their own bread with buckwheat flour; just a few ingredients and the procedure is very simple. We can prepare it with a blender without having to resort to using your hands or an ad hoc mixer to knead. Attention, however, to leavening; the success of the product depends on this.
Don't be fooled by the name, buckwheat has nothing to do with wheat! Furthermore, buckwheat flour is among the best alternatives to white flour; it does not contain gluten and therefore can also be consumed by celiacs.
Useful recommendation: at the time of purchase, to be sure that it is a gluten-free product, make sure you buy pure buckwheat flour. To make the flavor of buckwheat flour more palatable, many companies add blends that may contain wheat or grass flours (therefore with gluten)

- After the necessary time, check that the inside of the bread is cooked using a knife. If the knife is clean, then the bread is ready.
