    Thorsten's Note:

    Easy to make whole grain bread with a lot of seeds in it. Tasty and healthy at the same time. Germany is known for its bread variety. This is my little personal addition to this variety. This bread was inspired by a recipe I found ounce in a regional cookbook. I like especially the nutty flavor of the whole spelt flour and the delicate different flavors of the seeds. Try it with a layer of cream cheese and honey for breakfast or with any of your favorite spreads. Goes well together with cheese and salad. Some said it taste best without anything else. I make this frequently and it became one of my favorite breads.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 20

    Yield:

    Bread

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Roast the sesame seeds and set aside.
    2. 2
      Grease a 11.5 x 5 inch loaf pan.
    3. 3
      Dissolve yeast in a 1/2 cup of water.
    4. 4
      Sift flour into bowl. Add all other ingredients and mix until a smooth dough is formed.
    5. 5
      Fill dough into loaf pan and let dough rise for about 1 hour. The dough should rise noticable in that time. Otherwise extend time.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile preheat oven (480 F, 250 C).
    7. 7
      Put loaf pan into oven and bake for 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Reduce heat to 390 F (200 C) and bake for another 45 minutes.
    9. 9
      Take bread out of the oven and turn it around. Bread should easily come out of the loaf pan.
    10. 10
      Put bread into the oven again and bake for additional 15 - 30 minutes. Check frequently. When you thump on the Bread and it sounds hollow, bread is done.
    11. 11
      Take the bread out of the oven and let cool down.
    12. 12
      NOTE: I take the bread out of the loaf pan after 1 hour of baking and bake it until it is done. If the bread should not come out of the loaf pan easily, bake it until it is done in the form. The bread is dense (I like it that way). The moisture can be regulated by baking time, but bake it at least for 1 hour.
    13. 13
      NOTE: You can replace the whole spelt flour against whole wheat flour. You could also use other seeds. Try what you like best.

      My dough was very thin like quick bread batter. I could have never formed the loaf. The bread tasted a little bland and needed a little honey or other sweetener to balance the favors. Maybe this the way German bread should taste but I guess I will stick to my tried and true spelt oatmeal bread recipe.

      WOW - I've made a lot of bread and this was some of the best bread I've ever made! Totally reminescent of what you would be served at the best B&B's in Europe with cheese and salami for breakfast. I made two free form loaves and baked 35 minutes as another review suggested. I'm not baking with spelt flour and this is by far the best spelt bread Ive made ever!

      This bread is wonderful. I did change it up. It makes two good sized loaves, I bake them as rounds. Bake 375 for 35 minutes. Perfect. The best way to enjoy this bread, for me, is dipping it in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I am adding this to my menu of bread for my customers. Thank you for a wonderful hearty bread.
