Spelt Bread

If you haven’t baked with spelt flour before you might want to try it out. Its a whole grain but you end up with a product that is softer than whole wheat and requires less kneading. You can also replace white flour in pretty much any recipe with a similar texture to white flour- but with the nutrition of wholegrain. I really love working with spelt flour. I hope you will, too. Spelt flour is available in some grocery stores, specialty stores and health food stores.

Spelt Bread

 3 ¼ c. whole spelt flour

1 pkt. Active dry yeast

1 c. water

1/3 c. honey

¼ c. oil

1 t. salt

1 egg

Place 2 c. flour, yeast and salt in a medium bowl. Heat together water, honey and oil until warm (120-130 degrees) Add water mixture to spelt mixture and beat on low speed of electric mixer for 30 seconds, or until moistened. Add egg and beat on high 3 minutes. Stir in enough spelt to make a soft dough. Cover bowl with towel and allow to rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan and use a rubber scraper to transfer dough into prepared pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, another hour. Bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Cover top with foil during last 10 minutes of baking. Bread is done when it sounds hollow when lightly tapped. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack. Makes 1 loaf. I like this bread so much I often double the recipe so I have a loaf to freeze for later or give as a gift.
