June 28th Newsletter – Spelt Picnic Potluck Loaf

Dear Spelties,
This weeks Spelt recipe – Spelt Picnic Potluck Loaf

This is one of my favourite dishes to make for potlucks and picnics. I will be making this loaf for my Canada Day Party! It is very versatile, instead of the pepper, feta and pesto, you can put in ham and swiss cheese with mustard instead, or smoked slamon and asaparagus. Experiment with the recipe and e-mail to tell us what you made. Choose a variety of cheeses, meats and vegetables to make it your own.


3/4 cup melted unsalted butter
1/2 cup milk
5 large eggs

1 cup chopped red pepper
160 grams feta (I used Little Qualicum Cheeseworks sunshine feta)


1 tablespoon pesto

2 1/2 cups white spelt flour
1 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast


Mix butter, milk and eggs in large mixing bowl,

Whisk until well blended,
Fold in the cheese and vegetables

Add yeast and flour together in a seperate bowl and add to liquid mixture.

Mix until smooth with a rubber spatula and when the mixture is well blended, drizzle the pesto on top and swirl it into the mixture without fully blending.

Scrape mixture into a loaf pan that is well oiled.

Bake at 350?for 45 to 55 minutes until cake tester or toothpick comes out clean, let cool on a plate or rack.

Slice and serve on a plate. Excellent served with all types of sauces. Great for taking to a party or picnic.

I was at the Trout Lake Farmer’s Market a couple of weeks ago and saw this beautiful loaf of Spelt Bread and decided to try it. Very reminiscent of the Omega Protein bread that I use to make, it is a white Spelt bread with flax seeds in it. nice in texture. They will be a Trout Lake this weekend if you want to check it out.
