Seeded Kamut & Spelt Sourdough

My Sourdough Journey

I love making sourdough with ancient grains because they add much characters to the bread. And this Seeded Spelt & Kamut Sourdough is definitely one of my recent favorite sourdough recipes. I even kept making them over and over again as everyone around me seem to love it 😝 It’s perfect for both savoury or sweet toppings or you can just eat this plain.

Seeds, spelt and kamut gave this sourdough bread some nutty flavors which I really like. Feel free to experiment with different ratio of flour and let me know how it goes. I used Shipton Mill Seeded White flour. But you can just use white flour and add seeds by yourself.

Spelt & Kamut – Nutritious Ancient Grains

Spelt (aka dinkel wheat) is an ancient grain that is not only more nutritious than modern grains, but also has a unique nutty flavor. This characteristic makes spelt a perfect ingredient for wholegrain bread. What’s more, spelt is rich in iron, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc and vitamin B-3.

Similar to Spelt, Kamut (aka Khorasan wheat)  is also an ancient grain and a close variation of wheat. Kamut contains a higher percentage of zinc, magnesium and selenium than modern wheat. Selenium is very important for vegans and is responsible for our immune system, thyroid function and reproduction.

    Place the flour and water in a large mixing bowl and stir to incorporate.  Let it mingle for 40 minutes.

    Hi, I am still somewhat of a beginner but would love to try this recipe. I can’t figure out how percentages work, could you provide actual grams for all ingredients in this recipe?

      Hi1 The percentage is based on total grams of flour you are using. For example, if you use 300g of flour, then it will be 30g of spelt and 30g of kamut flour respectively 🙂
