Now No3 was here when I started to make this and we had a laugh as she said to me "That stuff was used by the Pharaohs in Egypt you know" To which I made some sarcastic remark of "oooh get you....your education not totally wasted then daughter dear" and I got a "No I can read - its written here on the packet"
So what is Kamut Flour? According to All About grains
Kamut® is a Brand of khorasan wheat. Kamut® is a close relative to wheat whose kernel. Its about the same shape as a wheat seed but a Kamut® kernel is more than twice as big. Even though Kamut® is very closely related to wheat, many people who are wheat intolerant can eat Kamut® with no problems. Kamut® also has some pretty amazing nutritional strengths. And as an amazingly versatile grain, Kamut® can be used in place of all the different wheats; the hard and soft varieties and also durum wheat.
The fact that many people who are allergic to wheat and can tolerate Kamut® is probably the biggest reason Kamut® has made real inroads into the health food markets.
So being the lazy human being I am I popped the ingredients into my bread maker. The back of the packet says
|the cheese melted in the middle|
1 teaspoon quick yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
375ml warm water
2 tbsp oil
into which I out 3oz of the grated "cheese"
Once the machine had done its job, I knocked the mix back and split it into two, one lot I made into a loaf and the other into six rolls. Left them to double in size and put into a preheated oven, the rolls took approx 12 mins and the bread 25 mins.
|in the breadmaker|
|cheese topped rolls.|

It rose well, it cooked up very normally, and it tasted light, and very flavoursome.
Bob loved it, as I say did not realise was not gluten free but he seemed ok with it, no abdominal pains or things. Will need to try him again with it as it so far the nicest bread I have made for him.
