Kamut Spelt Bread with Dried Plums, Hazelnuts and Sesame

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2013 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

This is a dense nutty bread made with organic wholemeal spelt flour, kamut flour, hazelnut, sesame seeds, dried plums and thyme. Kamut (ancient khorsasan wheat) has a buttery, sweet, rich flavour and a nutritious alternative to conventional wheat flour. Kamut is very versatile, just like spelt, and can be used to make bread, cookies or cakes.

Kamut Spelt Bread with Dried Plums, Hazelnuts and Sesame

adapted from lecker
  • 50 g Sesame seeds
  • 130 g Dried plums
  • 1/2 bunch Thyme
  • 250 g Wholemeal spelt flour
  • 250 g Wholemeal kamut flour
  • 2 tsp Sea salt
  • 100 g Whole hazelnuts
  • 500 ml Water, lukewarm
  • 42 g Fresh yeast
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  1. Dry roast the sesame seeds in a pan on medium heat until lightly browned, shaking the pan occasionally. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Cut the dried plums into four pieces. Roughly chop the thyme leaves. Whisk together wholemeal spelt flour, wholemeal kamut flour, and salt. Add in dried plums, thyme leaves, 75 grams of whole hazelnuts, and 40 grams of toasted sesame seeds.
  3. Stir together the water and fresh yeast in a large bowl. Pour the yeast water into the flour mixture, then add in balsamic vinegar. Stir all the ingredients until mixed. The dough will be rather sticky.
  4. Scrape the dough into a parchment-lined loaf pan. Smooth the top and scatter the remaining hazelnuts and sesame seeds over. Place it on the lower rack of cold oven.
  5. Bake the bread at 225C/440F for about 90 minutes, tenting it with a piece of aluminum foil after 45 minutes. Leave the bread in the pan for 10 minutes after baking. Turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Whenever I wonder what new will Angie add to her bread, you drop in a pleasant surprise! OMG, two slices from this bread with butter, is a complete breakfast. What I admire is the combination between a soft texture of the bread and a crunchy one from the hazelnuts :)

I had a chance to try some organic spelt bread recently. Honestly, I've never heard of spelt bread before that. Those toppings & dried plums are sure great additions to the bread :)

So flavorful and creative!

Kari Lindsay 13/6/13 17:20

I've only baked with wheat flours simply because I never know what to do with all these new alternatives on the market. I do love a dense bread though, and I'm digging the plums and nuts!

great-secret-of-life 13/6/13 18:27

I am so tempted to bake breads.. Nice pic.. Love the texture of the bread

Anonymous 13/6/13 19:24

Another one of your most awesome creations! It sounds grand. Is your middle name Spelt? Just teasing ;)

Hema 13/6/13 19:28

Wish I could get these different varieties of flours here, bread looks too good..

Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies 13/6/13 21:10

Thyme and plums sound like they'd be delicious together in a bread. Beautiful!

What a scrumptious looking loaf!

KAMUT® Brand khorasan is an organic, non-genetically modified, ancient wheat variety similar to durum. In 1990, “KAMUT” was registered as a trademark by the Quinn family in order to support organic farming and preserve the ancient khorsasan wheat variety. Under the KAMUT® Brand name, khorasan wheat must always be grown organically, never be hybridized or modified, and contain high levels of purity and nutrition. Today, Kamut International owns and has registered the KAMUT® trademark in over 40 countries, and is responsible for protection and marketing of all KAMUT® Brand khorasan wheat throughout the world.

KAMUT® wheat is grown on dryland certified organic farms primarily in Montana, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. The grain is prized by consumers who appreciate the grain for its high energy nutrition, easy digestibility, nutty/buttery taste, and firm texture. KAMUT® khorasan wheat is higher in protein, selenium, amino acids, and Vitamin E than most modern wheat and contains essential minerals such as magnesium and zinc. It is used as whole grain berries, whole grain flour, white flour, flakes, and puffs to make a variety of products. Some specific benefits of using KAMUT® khorasan are receiving more nutrients, protein, and taste than most commonly consumed whole wheat - plus supporting organic agriculture and helping to preserve an ancient grain.

KAMUT® khorasan is a variety of wheat thus has gluten content. A lot of people who are not able to tolerate wheat tell us that they are able to tolerate KAMUT® khorasan wheat. KI has ongoing research to understand why – it is our theory that because KAMUT® khorasan is an ancient grain, it retains the qualities that made it desirable so many years ago.

My kind regards - Jamie
