  1. Recipe: Honey & Wholemeal Spelt Loaf

    May 15, 2011 by Editor

    This recipe is really VERY simple, but the result is quite something. For such a basic loaf the flavour and the texture are great and even someone with the most basic exposure to baking could attempt to bake it. Sorry for the delay in getting it up.


    : Honey & Wholegrain Spelt Loaf

    An easy to make, but tasty, alternative loaf


    1. 500gr Wholegrain Spelt Flour
    2. 1 Tablespoon of Honey
    3. 1 package of Fast-Acting Yeast
    4. 400ml Warm Water
    5. 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
    6. 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil

    Set the oven to 200 C  (180C For Fan Ovens)

    1. Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl
    2. Dissolve the honey in the arm water and mix it into the dry ingredients
    3. While the dough is still rough, add the oil and then mix well
    4. Knead the dough for a few minutes and then divide it between two 500gr bread tins
    5. Cover them and leave then for around 25 minutes to prove
    6. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 40-45 minutes

    Preparation time: 15 minute(s)

    A few pics of my latest effort, a rather tasty (if I do say so myself) Honey and Wholemeal Spelt Flour Loaf. I’m making a fresh loaf tomorrow so I’ll add the recipe then. Enjoy.

  3. Soda Bread Links!

    Tasty, I should think! A polenta soda bread!

    This one is a rather cake-y looking soda, but nice!

    It’s odd how many people start posts about soda bread by saying, ‘I’m not Irish, but …’ Here’s one for instance, with a slight variation.

    Don’t like raisins? Don’t have raisins, have cranberries!

    And, if you just want a solid, plain and honest soda, try this post that also shows you how to make a decent Minestrone (which I’ve actually been doing some work on meself!),
