Recipe: Ginny's Spelt Cake

1 March 2011

Ingredients

 

6oz Margarine

6oz Caster Sugar

6oz Maple Farm White Spelt Flour

3 tsp Baking Powder

3 Maple Farm Eggs

 

Method

 

Cream the margarine and sugar until light and creamy in texture.

 

Sieve the flour and baking powder together. For best results sieve at least twice to make sure baking powder is well incorporated into the flour.

 

Beat in the eggs one at a time with a little of the flour. Gently fold in the rest of the flour.

 

Place the mixture into two greased 8 inch sandwich cake tins.

 

Bake in a moderate oven (160-180 degrees centigrade depending on oven) for 25-30 minuets.

 

When cool fill with jam and cream.

 

Spelt flour can be used in any cake recipe. For every 2oz of spelt flour use 1 tsp of baking powder. Sieving the two together well gives the best results resulting in an even cake.
