I have a question about the recipe "Black Sesame Banana Cake with Peanut Butter" from Sarah Jampel. Hi. A good Substitute to buckwheat flour? Normal Wheat Flour? Whole wheat flour? Corn Flour? I cant find buckwheat nowhere in Portugal.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
I have used rye flour in its place before.
Thanks. I'm going to do that too.

It's a forgiving recipe! I used more all-purpose flour in place of the buckwheat (and the almond actually) and it was great.
Thank you. I think I will use the Rye Flour instead of the Buckwheat.
I don't think buckwheat is used much in Portugal. I'm rather certain, however, that you can find rye flour (farinha de centeio) in most supermarkets there, especially in the North because pão de centeio is popular there.
I'm Portuguese and I never heard of Buckwheat. But Rye Flour we use a lot and I even have it in my house so I don't need to go buy it. Thank you.
