This recipe produces a very rich, fluffy and delicious result, almost cake-like. I think this recipe might just be one of my favorites yet.. The texture is 👌💯 you gotta try it and see for urself.


The ingredients used are gluten-free and vegetarian friendly. I honestly make my bread with buckwheat flour, I dont know why but I just prefer it that way, you can definitely switch your flour and milk and use regular sugar if you want.
I added Golden Raisins and Chocolate chips 😍🤤 of cos! You can use whatever topping your heart desires

Its really easy, quick and fun to make. You can refrigerate for a week or freeze for months. My go to snack..Dont judge.
