This recipe for orange drizzle spelt loaf cake first appeared on The Culinary Jumble. Images have been updated and the original recipe slightly amended.

This cake isn’t healthy. Nope, sorry. It has 100g white, refined sugar. Can’t disguise that. However, it is made withspeltflour and it only has 30g of butter. That’s not too bad, right?

The original recipe for my orange drizzle spelt loaf cake was made with half wholemeal and half white regular flour. My first inclination when recreating the recipe for The Spelt Kitchen was to still use wholemeal spelt. Thing is, wholemeal spelt seems a lot denser than regular wholemeal flour and as it’s a cake, I didn’t want it too heavy.

As I’ve said many times, you can substitute the spelt flour in my recipes with regular flour. All you need to do is add a touch more flour than my recipe.

  1. If you'd like to use regular flour, use 220g instead of the 200g mentioned
  2. I use grams in my recipes as weighing ingredients is the most accurate method. However, if cups are your thing, you can convert my measurements atCook it Simply.
