Spelt is such a healthy grain, and those buns look so delicious. I wish I didn't have the 'curse of yeast' hanging over me - anything I make with yeast NEVER works!

Yumm numm numm. These look good. They sound good. I get they will taste good. I've never tried spelt flour before, but there's always a first time. Thanks for posting these. I can never resist bread. I'm eating Pumpernickle with butter on it now.

Christine 26/10/10 03:11

Hello! I'm dying to make these but am wondering if you can help to give any more information on the flours. I believe I can get a hold of the whole spelt flour, but I'm wondering what that other one is - #360 spelt? Can you give me any clues about what to look for here in the U.S. - is it more finely ground, or more of a "white" spelt (like whole wheat flour vs. whole wheat pastry flour)?

[Reply]
Evan @swEEts 26/10/10 04:04

These look absolutely delicious.. I need to buy some spelt flour the next time I'm at Whole Foods! I wish I could put my hand through the screen and bite into one of these.

[Reply]
Dee 26/10/10 04:20

Biren @ Roti n Rice 26/10/10 04:47

I like those rolls. They look like they have a very tender crumb...yummy!

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 26/10/10 07:19

@Christine
Spelt #630 has 11% (more or less) protein content, so something like "white" spelt, if you could find spelt pastry flour, would be great too.

Ellie (Almost Bourdain) 26/10/10 07:57
