1 1/4 teaspoons
dry mustard powder
ground black pepper
distilled white vinegar
Because buckwheat is a very strong flavor, it needs strong spices. The flavor of this cake grows on you; at first I didn't care for it, but then I couldn't resist it! I ran out of cornstarch, so made up the difference with flour, and it turned out fine! Thanks for the recipe!
I didn't exactly have all the ingredients for this recipe, but even with substitution of maple syrup for molasses, 1/2 cup of whole cornflour+baking powder, five spice in place of all spice, and the additon of orange peel this recipe was forgiving enough to work even with the changes
Great cake! The batter seemed very thin to me but it baked up perfectly. Spices were perfect. I also paired it with cream cheese frosting; cutting the cake in half to make two layers. It made a pretty, bar shaped cake. Sweetie loved it!!!
This is amazing...so moist...so yummy..this might become a staple in our house.
very flexible tasty easy fast and inexpensive recipe. I am looking for a cream cheese frosting recipe for it now, and also a vegan frosting. great keeper
I would give this 4 stars, but it earned an extra one for being such a hit with my husband and son! I doubled the recipe in a 9x13 pan and it was moist and had great flavor even though I didn't have any vanilla.
Fantastic recipe! So quick to make, so moist, and so convenient in terms of having ingredients on hand. I didn't have buckwheat flour, but I did have wheat flour, and it turned out to be so yummy. I made this in a tube pan, and it was a great breakfast cake to have with coffee on my husband's birthday.
A definite winner. The cake was so moist and delicious - all without the saturated fat of butter, eggs, and shortening.
