This is a very tasty bread that is easy to make.Spelt has a nice nutty flavor. I added about 3 tablespoons of sunflower seeds & 2 tablespoons flax seeds to this recipe the results was very, very good, other grains could be added.
- 1 1⁄4 cups soymilk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups spelt flour
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- Place ingredients in pan of bread machine in order recommended by manufacturer.
- I used the cycle for white bread,Quick or Rapid,& light crust. My bread Machine is a Breadman, so I used Rapid cycle (time 2 hours).
- Note: I did have to add a little more milk when it was mixing.
I tried this recipe, its great! I have allergy to soy so I used rice milk instead, and olive oil instead of canola. i added flaxseeds and pepitas to the recipe and cooked it on rapid cycle (3 hours for my panasonic). The texture was soft and moist and the flavour was nutty and a little bit sweet. Have the second loaf mixing right now as my sister likes it too. Parents were harder to convince as they are used to the supermarket bread that is loaded with salt and arent sure about the sweetness of the spelt loaf, although I spotted mum eating it this morning instead of the "Helga's" bread she normally eats!
Sometimes recipes work for me, and gosh, sometimes they just don't. I just made this recipe, and well, this one is a keeper. I have 3 really pretty loaves here, and my family and I have tasted...delicious! I followed the recipe exactly. I used Hodgson Mill active Dry Yeast. I used One Degree Organic Sprouted Spelt Flour. I used Spectrum Canola & Coconut Oil Blend. I was very careful to precisely measure. I would suggest the following: 1) Select your bowl for the rising of the yeast in the oven, and set it aside, buttered and floured and ready to go. My dough was really sticky and stuck to everything. Use a different bowl as your "working" bowl for mixing and kneading. I kneaded for 8 minutes. 2) When your dough is in the oven, place a damp, thin kitchen towel over the top of the bowl to enhance and expedite the rising process. My dough took about 35 minutes to rise to the top of the bowl. 3) I made sure my pans were well greased AND floured. I used butter and spelt flour. 4) After I separated my dough into the three pans for baking, I placed them back into the still warm oven one more time and covered again with the damp, kitchen towel for about 30 more minutes. The dough in each pan rose to the top. 5) I removed the pans, set them on the counter, and then set the oven to 425 degrees. 6) Once the oven set to 425, my loaves went back in and were ready in 20 minutes. 6) Upon first inspection, the top crust felt really hard, and I initially thought, "Oh, no!" No worries, though. This bread is delicious! The top has a nice, crusty texture while the bread is moist, soft, and full of flavor. I will make this again! It tastes amazing with ghee clarified butter! :)
Gave this a try tonight...turned out better than expected! I've had trouble with many breadmachine recipes but this one was simple and came out perfect. Subsituted honey for sugar, but kept the rest of the ingredients as listed. Rapid cycle, light crust on my Cuisinart convection machine.
