One bowl Spelt Pancakes (4 Ingredients)

I love cooking with whole spelt flour – it has such soft and mildly sweet flavor that uniquely pops up in each bake. If you are interested in reading more about Spelt and its benefits, be sure to check our Spelt Grain Yogurt Breakfast Bowl Recipe (see recipe here) where I discuss spelt (dinkel) in more detail.

For toppings you can opt for anything you like, but I personally prefer the good old European classics – organic honey, sour cherry marmalade or fig jam (mm, yummmmy!) or some Feta (crumbled on top of pancake). Feta, really – yup, that’s why our pancakes rarely have any sugar in them


If you are looking for milk-free substitutes but do not mind the eggs, I’d recommend interchanging cow’s milk with almond milk or soy milk. If you wish to make these pancakes butter-y and sweet, then add 1 tbsp melted butter to the eggs and stir well. Then add the remaining ingredients.

CourseBreakfast, Brunch
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 12 pancakes


  • 1 cup spelt flour, whole grains
  • 1 cup whole cow’s milk
  • 1 egg, medium
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp butter (or olive oil) for greasing the pan
  • 1 tsp baking soda, optional
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar, unrefined (optional)


  • In large mixing bowl add eggs (sugar if desired) and milk and stir well to combine.
  • In a separate bowl combine spelt flour, baking powder (and baking soda if desired) and mix well. Then add to liquid ingredients and stir until just combined (I use egg whisk or mixer whisk).
  • Preheat skillet / pan on high heat and grease gently with butter (olive oil) with wooden spatula. Once well heated, reduce heat to medium. Then, add batter (1/4 cup at a time or use small ladle) to the pan by giving the pancake room to spread.
  • Flip pancake over once it puffs up bubbling and gets slightly dry on the edges (but still liquid-y in the middle – approx. 2 min on my stove. Cook on the other side until golden brown (approx. 2 min on my stove).
  • Continue until all batter is cooked. Serve immediately with desired topping (or plain as my 2 year old prefers them).
