100% Spelt Bread (Bread Machine) 2lb Loaf
From the UK website www.sharphampark.com converted to Imperial measures and slightly modified. Adjust the yield below to match your bread machine capacity. Personally, I make a 1 lb loaf in a Black & Decker bread machine designed for a 1-1/2 lb loaf. For a slightly different loaf, use 3 1/2 cups spelt flour and 1/2 cup quinoa flour. Note: The rapid bake cycle on my bread machine is approx. 2 hours long. I have noticed that some bread machines have a super rapid cycle of approx. 1 hour. I doubt this recipe would work on a super rapid cycle. (Note on nutrition values: the nutrition values for the spelt flour and almond milk are not included in the nutrition table. It appears Food.com does not have spelt flour and almond milk in their database.)
- Ready In:
- 2hrs 15mins
- 1 1⁄2 cups almond milk
- 4 1⁄2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 4 cups white spelt flour
- 2 teaspoons bread machine yeast or 2 teaspoons instant yeast
- Place ingredients in loaf pan in order suggested by manufacturer. (The above order is for my Black & Decker bread machine).
- Make a well in the flour, then add the yeast to the well, to avoid it touching the liquid.
- Set to Rapid Bake/Basic, and choose Light Crust.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

Thank you for this recipe. May I suggest the first instruction should be "Place ingredients in a loaf pan" (not "Please" them). Maybe some temperature indication could be added to the almond milk, for example "1½ cups almond milk, warmed to around 100?". I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it looks good and I will bake it today, then post any further tweaks depending on the result....[Several hours later] The loaf was very good. For some reason, a quarter of it adhered to the paddle and so became detached from the rest of the loaf, but the texture of the bread is quite strong so I don't expect this will happen again. It tastes like a good whole wheat bread.
I LOVE this recipe! This is by far the best spelt bread recipe I've found and I've tried quite a few. It is much more moist and lighter than most spelt breads and doesn't require additions like gums and other stuff to hold it together. It slices nicely and bakes perfectly on the rapid cycle of my Oster bread machine. I do use half water and half soy milk because I didn't have enough soy milk the first time I made it and it still turned out great. I don't have almond milk so used the soy. I also use white sugar because I don't have brown sugar. <br/><br/>Very satisfied! Thank you!!
