Spelt Red Wheat Bread with Brazilian Nuts

Labels: { , , } | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

This sepelt, red wheat and Brazilian nuts bread is nutty, light yet very flavourful, with a hint of sweetness from coconut sugar. Enjoy it as it is or toasted with a slather of butter sprinkled with a bit of black salt.

  • 190 ml Buttermilk, room-temperature
  • 60 g Rendered beef fat or lard
  • 20 g Fresh yeast, crumbled
  • 2 tbsp Coconut sugar or raw sugar
  • 100 g Red wheat, milled into flour
  • 250 g Spelt flour
  • 60 g Brazilian nuts, ground
  • 1 tsp Black salt or regular sea salt
  1. Heat the buttermilk to a simmer, and pour it over the beef fat in the mixing bowl of your stand mixer. Let the mixture cool to lukewarm, then add the yeast and sugar.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir on low speed until the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl. Increase the speed and knead the dough until it begins to become smooth and elastic. Add a bit of additional buttermilk or flour if needed. The dough should be soft, but not sticky.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover, and allow it to rise until puffy and about doubled in bulk, about an hour.
  4. Turn out the dough onto a lightly oiled work surface, and shape it into a log that fits a standard-size loaf pan. Cover loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the bread to rise for about an hour until it's domed about 1" above the edge of the pan.
  5. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Brush the top of the dough with water and sprinkle some ground Brazilian nuts over. Bake the bread for 30 to 35 minutes, until it's light golden brown. Remove the bread from the oven, and cool it on rack before slicing. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

As always, a gorgeous loaf of bread! I love the ingredients, so different from most bread especially with the buttermilk and lard. Have never used lard in a bread before. Bet it helps aid moisture. It certainly has a lovely crumb.

I like the idea of adding nuts to bread. Usually I add some seeds, but I think nuts can be ever more yummy.

I don't think that bread could look any tastier, but if it can I would devour it. Also, if it couldn't I would still devour it =p

What is black salt? I know it in Indian food but I don't think that is what you mean.

Angie's Recipes 18/2/19 16:06

@kitblu It's a type of rock salt (Kala namak).

mary anderson 14/3/19 23:36
