Looking for inspiration? Top Bananas! the Mumsnet cookbook is packed with great recipes your family will love.
I have any number of recipes but I'd rather have one off someone who says it actually works than putter about on the internet& would you use a breadmaker or do it in a kenwood - I have sore hands so I won't be kneading much
I make bread with spelt flour in the breadmaker but it involves no more work than any other flour, I'm not sure how it works if you're a proper baker!
I have a recipe I make by hand for a loaf which is half and half regular bread flour and spelt. It's yummy. I have no idea how to convert things for a bread maker though.
Oh Driveway could I have your recipe? (what breadmaker do you use?)HermioneWeasley I'm cutting out normal flour - but thanks
It's a panasonic, I just use the recipe that came in the booklet, I'll copy it out later for you.
Thank you - that is kind
Is it page 10 of this?
My spelt bread is whirring round in the breadmaker right now.I use: 1 1/4 tsp dried yeast375g spelt flour125g white bread flour1 tsp salt1 tbsp olive oil400ml waterI tried various proportions of spelt to white flour - more than this and I find it's very solid, less and you don't taste the speltyness.
I'm supposed to be giving up white flour
My neighbour has baked an all spelt loaf, and it was edible....until it went cold! Then it went rock hard. Can it be mixed with something other than white flour?
Maybe I need to buy Gluten free flour
I made pancakes with spelt flour the other week, delish!

I make spelt bread in my machine and use it in place of normal flour in other recipes (with baking powder if SR is required)1tsp yeast (buy the stuff for breadmakers)1 1//2 tsp salt1tsp sugar400g white spelt5g butter (I use olive oil)260mls waterThis is for a medium loaf, my machine has a spelt setting, through cycle is 4.5 hours.
Apparently it's low gluten......maybe?
It is lower in gluten, I avoid wheat but can tolerate spelt ok.
I have a lovely recipe for spelt fairycakes should you want anything sweeter than bread!
I will want fairy cakes Who knows if it will help or if I'll have to go completely gluten free
There is a delicious chocolate cake recipe on here somewhere. I'll try to link.
Looks lovely but I keep forgetting no egg either
Oh that's harder then!
No dairy, egg, coconut, almond, onions/garic, green veg (except green beans - bizarrely), pulses & now gluten<sigh>
