I was looking for a yeast/dairy/wheat/egg-free bread and this fit the bill. It turned out wonderfully, with a light texture and delicious taste. This is definitely a lifesaver! Thanks!

On a recent health kick, I bought a 2 lb. bag of spelt flour for no discernable reason. This recipe was the perfect excuse to use it up. It was easy, and actually quite fun, to put together. I tasted a piece warm from the oven with butter. It has a nice "earthy" flavor and an interesting texture. Mine didn't rise as much as I would have liked, but I am nearly certain that my baking soda or cream of tartar (or both) were too old to be fully effective. While I would not personally go out of my way to make this bread again, I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has dietary restrictions. It is the most bread-like "substitute" I have ever tasted. It is also so quick to put together that there is no hardship involved at all. Just make sure your active ingredients are fresh. ;)
