Super Yummy & Good For You Bread! Even my picky boy eats this :) The spelt flour not only adds a unique nutty flavor but because of its high water solubility, its vital nutrients are quickly absorbed into the body. The Vital Wheat Gluten adds an extra punch of Vitamin C and protein (not to mention a prettier loaf). As a reminder-- Wheat breads need extra rising time, so make sure your bread doubles in size before punching it down and before sticking it in the oven. Prep time includes rise time.
