After I tasted these pancakes on a camping trip with my friend Susan, I asked her for the recipe. When she gave it to me, she also handed me a Ziploc bag full of spelt flour. In those days (years ago now), spelt flour was available only in 25-lb. quantities from our local co-op; Susan had stocked up.
Now, fortunately, you can buy it in 5-lb. bags through Bob’s Red Mill. I love the nutty flavor of this whole-grain flour, and when you combine it with all the other good ingredients in this recipe, it makes a hearty breakfast. Embellish the cakes with apple butter if you possibly can.
