The instruction how to make Strawberry and ricotta spelt cakes

  1. Preheat oven to 200u00b0C/180u00b0C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in 3 tsp of the sugar. Add coconut oil. Rub coconut oil into flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Make well in centre. Add vanilla and 100ml of the buttermilk. Use a flat-bladed knife to mix until dough just comes together.
  2. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead until smooth. Use hands to press dough into a 1.5-2cm thick round. Use a 6.5cm round cutter to cut 4 discs from dough, reshaping scraps. Place, just touching, on prepared tray. Brush with remaining buttermilk. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, place strawberry in a heatproof bowl. Place jam and port in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until smooth. Bring to the boil. Simmer for 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Cool for 2 minutes. Pour over strawberry. Set mixture aside for 10 minutes to macerate.
  4. Halve cakes. Spread bases with ricotta. Top with strawberry mixture, then cake tops.
