This is a spelt bread recipe I love that I got from a Britsh site. I've baked it twice and it comes out great. Do not bake in a bread machine.... the machine's timing is all off for spelt. Bread machine timing is based on Wheat flour. Regards, Mark Ferwerda of Stuttgart, Germany Ingredients provided in metric and regular U.S.
