Buckwheat flour has a very distinct flavour (think of buckwheat honey) which pairs well with the cinnamon and apples that this recipe calls for. We've had it for both dessert or breakfast.
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups buckwheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
6 medium apples peeled and roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 325°F. Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon and buckwheat flour until well mixed. Finally, fold in the apples. Pour batter into a greased cake or loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
