Ingredients

  • ·
    400 g spelt flour
  • ·
    200 g white flour
  • ·
    300 ml water (luke warm)
  • ·
    2 tsp yeast
  • ·
    1 tbsp cane sugar (unrefined)
  • ·
    1 tsp himalayan salt (pink)
  • ·
    1/4 tsp black pepper (freshly ground)

How to Make Tear and share spelt flour buns

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl mix in the two types of flour, sprinkle the salt and form a well in the middle but try and sprinkle no salt in the actual well as yeast and salt don't like each other.
  2. In a cup/mug mix the yeast with the sugar and pour 100 ml lukewarm water. Mix well until both sugar and yeast dissolve. You could leave it in the cup or pour it in the well formed in the flour. I recommend the latter as leaving it in the cup requires that you keep an eye on it as it will overflow so, best is to pour it in and set aside for around 20 minutes.
  3. Once the yeast has become all a big bubble start kneading the bread. Pour the remainder of the water and the buttermilk and the crushed linseed. Mix very well and knead until the dough no longer sticks to your hand. This will probably take 4-5 min or so.
  4. Gradually add the olive oil while still kneading. Feel free with punching, slapping, stretching, whatever you feel like doing with it but as I said the low glutenous flours do not require that much working but maybe half the time (5-6min instead of 10-12 min what would be needed for a higher gluten flour).
  5. When finished, smooth the surface into a big ball and cover. Allow to prove for as many hours as you fancy. I normally leave it between 4-8 hrs.
  6. When finished with proving just put into the baking tray. Allow to prove again for an extra hour or so and then place in the oven. Bake at 190 C for 40-50 min.
  7. When ready, turn oven off and allow a good 20-30 min to cool.
  8. Take out of the oven and cover with a towel for another 20-30 minutes outside the oven. Then, take out from baking tray and serve slightly warm or cold with anything you like, whether that is sweet or savory. Simply divine!
