Spelt Banana Bread#BreadBakers

Spelt is a special and ancient grain. Spelt is an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, several vitamins and dietary minerals. Since this flour is high in protein and low in gluten lends a slightly sweet and nutty flavor to the bread. This is a one bowl banana bread, just mix the dry ingredients to the wet  and bake.

3 Very Ripe/Blackened Bananas
175 Grams Brown Sugar
2 Large Eggs
125 Ml Buttermilk
25 Grams Honey
115Grams Salted Butter - melted and cooled
200 Grams Spelt Flour
1 Teaspoon Heaped Baking powder
1 Teaspoon Level Baking soda
Pearl Sugar for the topping/decoration - optional

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line a loaf pan (11.5 x 20cm/8" x 4") with baking parchment or grease it well and keep aside.
In a large bowl, mash your ripe bananas with a fork. 
Add in the brown sugar, eggs, buttermilk, honey and butter. Whisk thoroughly to combine.

In another small bowl, whisk together the spelt flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the wet.
Fold until the dry ingredients are just combined with the wet( do not over mix).  
Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan.   
Sprinkle the top with pearl sugar, if using.
Bake in the preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when you poke the center of the bread. If it starts to brown too much, you can cover the top with foil.
Leave to cool in the bread pan, then turn out 
and slice to serve.
