In times gone by buckwheat, fagopyrum esculentum, has been called sarrasin and black wheat due to the black outer casing of the triangular seeds.  

Buckwheat flour makes delicious pancakes, blinis, noodles and specialist pasta.

What this website does not make clear is that Buckwheat is not wheat or a grass like oats or rice, and is, therefore, gluten free. It is a seed and has wheat like properties but is actually related to Sorrel. Believe me, it is truly delicious, makes flavoursome pancakes and also tasty bread, though one might have to experiment a bit to produce a 100% buckwheat loaf. Otherwise blend it with spelt.

I have just used this for the first time in a flan / custard tart, instead of regular flour. My expectations were dubious about the results but the pastry is actually one of the highlights of the dish. The flour seemed to cook better as a pastry than the usual common plain wheat flour. The blind bake produced a lovely 'short' texture. I topped this with egg custard mix and dropped in some frozen strawberries and rebaked. There is something delicious and special about the pastry, it changed while cooking with the filling. It took on the moisture and flavour of the eggs and strawberries and didn't go soggy, more of a stodgy deliciousness. This flour has potential in the baking department!
