Weights and measures


A spelt cake is a cake made from the grain far, traditionally used as an offering given agricultural deities such as Ceres or Tellus. Note that the word "spelt" is a mistranslation of the Latin word "far", which in fact is the grain which in English is called emmer.

C. Minucius Hadrianus' Recipe for Spelt Cake

Here's how I do it, it's pretty simple - spelt flour and water! Just mix enough water into the flour to get a nice doughy consistency, take a nice pinch of dough, roll it into a ball and then roll it out into a little pancake. Heat up a pan with some olive oil, and brown up the cake. I make them fairly small (1-2") and thin so they will burn reasonably well in my turibulum, which is small.
