Apple cake made with buckwheat flour

From the cookbook Strak Plan 2

A healthy version of cake: buckwheat is gluten free and therefore suitable for people with coeliac disease (a gluten intolerance) or people with a sensitivity to gluten. Gluten is a certain type of protein that is found in some grains: wheat, rye, barley (groats), spelt and khorasan wheat. You don’t need to worry about gluten, it’s just that some people have a reaction to it and so need to avoid it. TAKE NOTE! There are some grains that do not naturally contain gluten. However, it is advisable to only buy products with a gluten-free logo if you are sensitive to gluten. This is because of the potential for cross contamination during manufacturing.
