So we bit thew bullet and made some spelt bread from it. And boy, am I ever glad that we did? Whilst it contains gluten, it does have a lot more health benefits than regular flour. It is a little pricier (of course) but it really turned out very nicely. It has a nutty, flavourful taste too. Everything we used was from our cupboard and is part of our current using everything up week.
So, how did we make it? It was very easy.
500g of spelt flour
Tbs of baking soda
Tbs of sugar
Pinch of salt
2 Tbs of olive oil
Tbs of lemon juice
550 ml of water
Optional are the seeds
*Throw the whole lot in a bowl together and mix until well combined.
*When combined spatulate (my word I know) the whole lot into a buttered/well-oiled loaf tin.
* Cook on 160 degrees Celsius for one hour or until the skewer you might own comes out cleanly.
*Demolish. I enjoyed peanut butter and honey as my topping! Marvellous.
