Spelt Bread and Spelt Pancakes

These are some recipes that my mother in law uses.  She is almost 90 and her and my father in law still make their own bread. We have had both at her house and since we got a supple of spelt thought I would make some.
•    16 cups ground spelt flour or what ever you end up with after grinding
•    7 cups water
•    2 tablespoons salt
•    2 tablespoons lecithin
•    4 tablespoons lemon or grapefruit juice
•    4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
•    1/2 cup honey
•    4 tablespoon yeast (rapid rise)

This makes six loaves bread
Put all the ingredients in mixer bowl except flour and yeast, Put ½ cup flour on top of wet
Ingredients and sprinkle yeast on top mix for 30 seconds, continue adding flour until it
starts pulling away from sides of bowl. Then mix for 6 minutes more.  Divide into 6  loaves and bake at 375 for 10 minutes then lower heat to 325 for 25 minutes.  Wash with egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds or what ever you like and bake the last 10 minutes.

Spelt pancakes

•    2 cups spelt flour
•    1 teaspoon baking soda
•    1 teaspoon baking powder
•    ½ teaspoon salt
•    2 eggs
•    2-2 ½ cups buttermilk
•    4 tablespoons olive oil or canola

Put flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in bowl, mix well. Put egg, in bowl with buttermilk and oil, mix together and then make well in flour mixture and pour in the
middle, mix well and cook.

Sprinkle with sesame seed when you put them on the griddle.  They take longer to cook
than white flour pancakes but have patience the wait is worth while.
