Hi there: I supply a local health foods store with spelt breads and cookies. I currently make about 5 different types of bread and maybe 8 kinds of cookies. There doesnt seem to be an abundance of good bread recipes online or in cookbooks,and I want to start making some different varieties. Currently I make these type : Raisin Molasses,Honey Flax,Mixed Seed,Plain honey white,Molasses with flax and rolled oats. I am also interested in new cookie recipes especially those utilizing tofu. Id appreciate any suggestions.Thank you!

Just substitute spelt flour into any recipe calling for wheat flour. I am allergic to wheat and that's what I do. It really behaves pretty much exactly the same.

Hi Mollygoat: Thanks,but I've tried this and it has about a 50% failure/success rate. Baking is too exact a science for such an easy substitution. Example: most of my cookie recipes were originally for wheat flour,when substituting spelt the rule of thumb is: 4 cups wheat=5 cups spelt,this doesnt translate the same for bread recipes unfortunately.

Well, I do it all the time for bread recipes with no problem. Strange.

Would a possible difference in altitude have anything to do with the different behaviour for the flours you're experiencing?
