Emmer Quick Bread with Molasses

Labels: { , }

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

This is a delightful quick bread that is fast and easy to prepare, healthy and delicious. The molasses, which is a good source of calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium, adds a hint of sweetness and nicely compliments the nutty flavour of the emmer flour. It tastes great plain or with a little butter.
Emmer, also known as farro, is a low gluten, nutrient dense grain with a sweet, nutty flavour. If you cannot find emmer in your local stores, simply replace it with kamut or modern whole wheat flour.

  • 300 g Emmer berries, ground into flour
  • 100 g Oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 400 ml Buttermilk, well-shaken
  • 1 Extra large egg
  • 160 g Molasses
  • 15 g Rolled oats for topping
  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/325F. Line a standard-size loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the ground emmer, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add in buttermilk, egg and molasses. Whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with rolled oats. Bake in the middle of hot oven for about an hour until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack. Cool completely.
