Do you know about Spelt Flour?
Spelt is a type of wheat. To make whole grain spelt flour, the entire spelt grain is processed, including the bran, endosperm and germ. It has a nutty, slightly tangy flavor, a coarse texture and has visible brown flecks mixed in with the white.
This article from bon appetit magazine, suggests how to bake with spelt flour. It says we can use spelt flour as a direct 1:1 substitute for all-purpose flour in cakes, muffins, and cookies. As well as fruit desserts like crumbles and crisps. In breads, however, you’ll have to play around, balancing it with all-purpose, to get the right rise and texture.
I have tried quiet a few bakes with spelt flour, my favorite is this Spelt flour bread. I baked a loaf this week too, both my kids enjoy it with just butter.
We love this veggies loaded calzone recipe, which has a mix of spelt, whole wheat and all purpose flour. If you are a dessert person you should check this strawberry spelt flour bundt cake or Fruity cinnamon rolls.

- Heat a pan. I have used my cast iron pancake pan. Make sure the heat is medium. Too hot pan, will burn and make the pancakes stick to it and too low heat will not cook the pancake properly.
- To know whether the pan is at correct heat, sprinkle water, it should sizzle and not smoke. If smoke, take it off heat, let it cool down a bit and heat again.
- When the pan is hot, pour a ladle of batter into each of holes. Add butter on top, cover and cook for a minute in medium flame.
- I added chocolate chips for a batch of pancakes. You can also add some apple compote or raisins to your pancakes.
- Remove cover, flip and cook again for a minute in medium flame. Remove and serve it warm with honey and crushed walnuts.
- I got around 12 pancakes for the above batter. You can get around 10-15, depending on the size of it.
