Kasha is a type of cereal made with buckwheat groats which have first been roasted, then soaked and finally simmered till it becomes soft. Kasha bread is healthy, and tastes almost like a cake. Buttermilk, cream and nuts all come together to give it a beautiful texture.

Recipe Notes

 Don't beat the ingredients. Since it is gluten free we don't want to beat the flour too much.
The mixture will be a little stiff, but don't worry. Just smoothen it out before baking.
