Spelt Banoffee Flapjacks with Dark Chocolate

It was my mother’s birthday last week and one of the home baked treats we had was a lovely chocolate flapjack. I came away with the recipe (it was one from her head) and decided to give it a makeover. I was toying with adding apple but on seeing a very ripe small banana in …

Spelt and Chia Fishtail Plait Loaf

I first made this loaf about 2 years ago when my daughter insisted that I learn how to do a fishtail plait. After a few views of a YouTube video I managed to do my daughter’s hair with great success. This then got me thinking, why not transfer this technique to bread. I made a …

Vegan Banana Cake

Seeing a drawer full of over-ripe frozen bananas in the freezer the other day I decided that it was high time that I put them to use. As we’re trying to have a “healthier” January I decided against any of my usual Banana Cakes and set about searching for something suitable. After a quick flick …

Apple & Chocolate Spelt Swiss Roll

I’m not having a dry January like a lot of people because I don’t really drink but I am making a concerted effort to eat more healthily after the excesses of Christmas! However, spying a few Bramley apples in my fridge the other day, my mind wandered back to a cake that I’d promised myself …

Christmas Soda Bread

December is such a busy time and what with my birthday, a wedding, my daughter’s numerous school performances and my son’s various exams and his trip to the Cologne Christmas markets, I’m afraid my Christmas recipe offerings have had to stay as ideas in my head until now. (Note to self, start making Christmas recipes …

Slow Cooked Beef & Vegetable Casserole

I don’t know about you but I really couldn’t live without a bottle of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce in my cupboard as it seems to have so many culinary uses. Whether it’s pepping up a Marie Rose Sauce or adding to a dish such as my Minced Beef and Onions. I remember my dad …

Apple & Pear Cider Spelt Soda Bread

With the fabulous abundance of British apples right now I was sent a voucher by Sainsbury’s to buy myself some. My personal favourites are Coxes with their intensely sweet flavour so these are the ones I plumped for. I ummed and aahed as to what I should make with my apples and after a rummage …

Quick Spelt Butternut Squash Cake

Autumn, alternative to Carrot Cake, Wholegrain Spelt, Easy, Quick

I often make Butternut Squash Soup and don’t like to tamper with the quantity of ingredients in it, so I found myself with a hunk of spare Butternut the other day and my husband suggested I made a cake with it. I had actually been toying with this idea myself (he won’t believe me) as …

Spelt Danish Apple Ring

I was flicking through my mother’s old recipe folder the other day when a recipe I’d never made had caught my eye (it translated to White Cake with Apple). I realised the only reason I’d never made it was because it had a type of flour in it called “Grahams Mel” which is Danish and …

Spelt & Wholemeal No-knead Loaf

National Bread Week runs between 16 – 22 April so in its honour I have conjured up this loaf with inspiration coming from a bag of White Spelt Flour from Sharpham Park, Strong Wholemeal Flour and the idea of a no-knead loaf which I read about in my copy of “The Cranks Recipe Book” (1993). …
