Spelt (dinkel wheat ) and kamut (khorasan wheat) are heirloom wheat varieties that contain gluten. So they are NOT for celiacs. If you are not diagnosed with gluten sensitivity and can enjoy these two 'ancient grains' with no side effects, then you’ll find that both have a rich buttery, nutty flavour and excellent nutritional profile.
This easy bread recipe comes from 'Brot selbst gebacken' by Kristiane Müller-Urban. You can make this bread using emmer, einkorn or modern common wheat.

  • 20 g Fresh yeast
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 50 ml Water, lukewarm
  • 300 g White spelt flour
  • 200 g Kamut kernels, ground into flour
  • 200 ml Buttermilk, lukewarm
  • 50 g Olive oil
  • 1 Small egg
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • Bean paste, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 Small egg beaten with 2 teaspoons water (egg wash)
  • 1 tbsp Chopped peanuts
  1. Crumble the fresh yeast into the bowl of your stand mixer. Add in sugar, 3 tablespoons of spelt flour, and 50 ml water. Stir until combined. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. In another bowl mix together lukewarm buttermilk, olive oil, egg, honey and salt.
  3. Add the ground kamut, the rest of white spelt into the yeast mixture. Roughly stir together. Add in buttermilk-honey mixture. Stir at low speed until a soft dough forms. Increase the speed and knead until the dough cleans the sides of the bowl.
  4. Cover the bowl with a plastic film and set aside at a warm place for an hour until doubled in volume. Punch down the dough and divide into two portions, one is 480 grams, the other 360 grams (or 600-gram and 240 -gram). Divide the 480-gram-dough into 16 pieces (600-gram-dough into 20 pieces), each 30 grams and 360-gram-dough into 6 pieces (or 240 -gram into 4 pieces), each 60 grams.
  5. Wrap each 30-gram-dough with 15 grams of red bean filling. Shape into balls and place 8 dough balls into the base of a loaf pan and top with another 8 dough balls. Shape each 60-gram-dough into a ball. Place them on a parchment-lined baking tray.
  6. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or just until doubled in volume. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Gently brush the egg wash mixture over the loaf and buns. Sprinkle the top of loaf with chopped peanuts.
  7. Bake the loaf for about 35 minutes and dinner buns for 20 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Remove them to a cooling rack or serve immediately.

Mmm! I'm loving the idea of red bean paste in this wholesome bread :)

Kelly Mulcair Registered Nutritionist. Content © 2011 Trinity Nutrition. 1/2/14 08:42

Kamut and spelt are two of my favourite grains. I especially like the soft, silky texture of spelt in baking. Your loaf is gorgeous Angie -- I just love the variegated colour as well -- I guess that's the bean paste towards the top? So great.

Mijú 1/2/14 16:07

Que bonito corte.

Magda 23/2/14 14:45

I've never tried kamut flour, there are so many flours I need to try.
Your bread looks gorgeous. I will bookmark it and hopefully one day try it when I buy kamut flour.

My Little Space 4/3/14 04:55

Howdy dear ! I'm sure you're doing well since you're working so hard in the kitchen. I love this bread. Will check on kamut after this. Have heard of it before but can't remember what it is ! haha....
Hope you're having a great week ahead.
Blessings, Kristy ((hugs))
