Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Mix the milk and cider vinegar together and leave for a couple minutes to curdle, creating buttermilk.


Mix together the buckwheat flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a bowl. Then slowly pour in the buttermilk, whilst mixing, to form a dough.


Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for a couple minutes. Shape the dough into a large ball, place onto a baking tray and flatten slightly. Score a large cross in the centre of the dough and place in the oven to bake for roughly 40-50 minutes. To test if the bread is cooked tap the bottom, it should sound hollow.
