Light spelt bread (08.01).

A light spelt bread (use the remaining spelt flour).


  • – 400 g white bread flour
  • 300 g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 400g water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 20 g fresh yeast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

1. Mix flours and salt in a bowl.

Crumble the yeast in the flour. Add most of the water and the olive oil. Start mixing the flour and the liquid. If all well mixed turn out on a working sufrace.

Knead for about 5 minutes and return to a lightly greased bowl.

Leave to rise for 40 minutes or about doubled insize.

2. Turn out the dough on a lightly foured surface. Form into a loaf.  Tried to add some sunflower seeds on top of the loaf.  (spread seeds on working surface and roll top of bread in the seeds) Put the loaf on a greased our floured baking tin.

Leave to rise for 50 minutes.

3. Bake in a pre heated oven at 200C for 33 minutes.

When the bread is ready (tap underneath to check), put on wire rack to cool.

Remark: toasted sunflower seeds were excellent 🙂 but did not stick on the bread 😦
