Bread Machine Whole Spelt Bread

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
YIELD: 12 Slices




  • Insert all items into bread machine starting with the first listed ingredient and ending with the yeast or seeds/nuts. Keep the extra spelt for kneading it into the loaf shape of your choice.
  • Set machine to dough cycle (1.5 hours for me).
  • When it finishes, powder your hands with the extra spelt flour and grab the dough.
  • Shape it into a loaf shape, using extra spelt as necessary to shape.
  • Place in a greased loaf pan.
  • Turn your oven to the lowest temperature for two minutes. Then shut it off and place your loaf in there.
  • Let rise for about 35 minutes. It'll maybe not look too tall, but don't worry. It should have at least grown by 50%.
  • Turn oven on to 375 degrees. Bake for 35 minutes (don't worry about preheat time. Those 8 minutes are included when I did it).
  • Bread should be pretty much done, but let it slide out of loaf pan and cook on wire rack in oven for 10 more minutes at 300 degrees.
  • When done, let it cool for ten minutes. You can avoid the urge to start eating by getting coffee going.
  • Enjoy, with or without coffee.
