Dove Farm's organic wholemeal spelt flour makes fabulous bread. So far I've been combining it with 50% strong white bread flour (makes utterly delicious loaves, especially with a teaspoon of caraway seeds added) but now I'm hooked I'm planning on becoming more experimental.... I'll never to back to using ordinary wheat flour.

Brilliant, love spelt. So nitty and gives such soft and squishy fluffy rolls. I have also used it for making the traditional Vollkornbrot and am going to try a home recipe for fruit malt loaf ( like soreen) so excited to see this flour available. Highly recommended.

This flour makes the most delectable, slightly nutty loaf. It's lovely on its own or when mixed with malthouse and white flour. I have just bought a 25kg bag of it (hooray!) so am going to enjoy experimenting with it.

Having run out of ‘normal flour’ I used this along with white spelt flour to make some scones, both cheese and fruit ones, suffice to say I will never go back to using any other flour, everyone agreed they were the best scones I’d ever made (and I’ve made a lot over the years).

I have switched to this bread as it isn't fortified with calcium carbonate and iron (in my mind, calcium carbonate and iron are very bad additions, health wise). It makes delicious bread, I add seeds to it, the bread is moist and lasts a long time in fridge, and freezes well!
The recipe I use is 1/2 bag of flour, 11gm quick yeast, 1 and a 1/2 tsp of himalayan pink salt, about 90gm of assorted seeds and 500ml of water, chuck it all in a bowl, mix thoroughly, put in greased loaf tin and in gas oven mark 5 for 1 hour. That's it, no kneading, no mess just a lovely loaf!

Is this flour fortified? Which ones of your flours are fortified, and which ones aren't? (The Bread and Flour Regulations 1998)
Hi Chris. No, this flour is not fortified - none of our wholemeal flours are - wholemeal flours are exempt from UK mandatory fortification. Only our Plain white, Self Raising White and Strong White flours are fortified.

Hi there - just wondering whether this product is made of sprouted spelt flour? Or just spelt flour? Apologies if I'm asking this in ignorance. I'm not very familiar with the bread making process.
Hi, the answer is no as it is milled from un-sprouted grain. Many thanks, Doves Farm

I am new to Spelt and was rather surprised by it's sweetness but it made delicious bread and my daughter now wants nothing else, I prefer a more savoury taste but shall definitely buy more Spelt as I imagine it is just perfect for baking cookies and cakes (and loaves for my daughter)

I have used this flour to make bread, pita bread and pasta. All have been excellent, light, tasty and easily digested. I wish I had found Spelt flour years ago!!

This makes excellent bread but for anyone who is allergic to wheat protein, this flour has been milled on equipment that has dealt with wheat. It is therefore contaminated with wheat and can cause symptoms.
Thank you for your comment. You are quite right to note this flour is milled using equipment which mills other wheat and gluten containing grains. However, it is not contaminated with wheat, it is a variety of wheat itself. Therefore anyone with gluten allergies should not use this flour, and some wheat intolerances may still react to this flour. ~ Doves Farm

Love the Wholegrain Spelt flour, even my son who refuses to eat 'brown bread' loves this as bread. Have yet to use in other recipes, but when the bread is this good..!

I seem to have converted my whole family to spelt flour. I use it in my favourite wholemeal honey cake, to make gorgeous chocolate chip cookies and when I have to time, bread! It's a really good all rounder when I've replaced any standard recipe with doves farm spelt. Fully recommended!

I have made Roman bread many times and in large quantities, its is delicious, keeps very well and works in many other dishes, Spelt, cheese and honey balls are particularly good.

Very pleased with the Roman bread made from recipe on back of pack. Very easy and quick. Lovely close texture and slighty sweet. Be interesting to experiment with different types of honey. Lovely toasted.
