Method Prep:15min › Cook:35min › Ready in:50min
Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease a 22x12cm (9x5 in) loaf tin.
Mix flour, buckwheat flour, xanthan gum, sugar, and salt together in a bowl.
Beat eggs, vegetable oil, agave nectar, and apple cider vinegar together in a separate large bowl; add flour mixture and beat with an electric mixer until you get a smooth batter. Stir beer and yeast into the mixture, increase mixer speed to High, and beat for 4 minutes; pour into prepared loaf tin. Brush the top of the loaf with milk and sprinkle poppy seeds evenly over the surface. Cover the loaf with oiled greaseproof paper and let rise until doubled in volume, 30 to 60 minutes.
Bake in preheated oven until set in the middle and the internal temperature of the loaf reaches 99 degrees C, 35 to 45 minutes.
