Can you eat spelt flour or some other grain? I mostly use spelt and just add baking powder and baking soda to it, there's bound to be something on the net to say how much to add!

Spelt contains gluten, I believe, as my DD doesn't use it; GS is on Gluten-free, Casein-free diet.

SR flour = self-rising flour, and yes, it has leavening in it.

Thank goodness for Google!

castor sugar: very finely granulated sugar that was formerly sprinkled from a castor.

Maybe it's the same as confectioner's/powdered sugar? Probably not, it's likely closer to superfine sugar. I just noticed the word granulated in the def.

If you can weigh in grams it should transfer to other countries easily. Just measure what you'd use in Aus. and then weigh it for us. Also what is S.R. Flour and Caster Sugar?

GG's correct, spelt does contain gluten. My mum, one of my maternal Great Aunts and a paternal cousin are all coeliac and my sister has a wheat intorrerance.

Jan, if you can't eat spelt, can you obtain a good gluten free flour and subsitue that. GF flours can be a bit 'dry' compared to wheat flours but if you add a bit more liquid you should be ok.


Regard the sugar: Caster sugar is finer than granulated sugar, but not as fine as icing sugar (the one that is like really fine dust). If you don't have caster sugar you can put some granulated in a blender and wizz it up for a few seconds to make it finer.

According to a couple of recipe book I've just looked in the American term for Caster Sugar is Superfine Sugar and Icing Sugar translates to Confectioners Sugar.

Yep, caster sugar is fine sugar, I mentioned that on the last post on the first page, lol!

Icing sugar = confectioners sugar

1 cup = 250 mls
caster sugar = super fine sugar (not icing sugar)
S.R. flour has rising agents in it: baking soda/baking powder
Almond meal = ground almonds

I do wish the English speaking world would speak the same language!

For what it's worth I never measure exactly - I prefer the Nigella Lawson approach ... in fact, if the Tangelos are particularly ripe and have more moisture, I'll increase the S.R. Flour.

GG-Aren't you a west-coaster? Here in Northern California I see tangelos at the market every summer. They are nice and juicy! Meyer lemons are nice, too.

David, looks and sounds fabulous! I'll have to try it for our next potluck at work. 'Potluck'-do you aussies and yanks call it that? Where everybody attending brings a certain dish of food and everybody shares it all?
