"This great tasting basic spelt bread recipe was on my first bag of Arrowhead Mills Spelt Flour a few years ago. It's an easy & delicious bread recipe."
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons honey (I sometimes add 1/2 to 1 tablespoon extra of the honey.)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
3 1/2 cups spelt flour
1 teaspoon sea salt on top of the flour
(NOTE: if using all-purpose flour use 3 cups flour & 1/4 cup oil instead of amounts listed above. Otherwise the recipe is the same. ~ REMEMBER though, this change is not for Type-Os.)
You can add small amounts of herbs (such as basil and/or rosemary), chia seeds (usually ground), and/or grated Parmesan &/or asiago cheese. Check for any Type-O AVOIDS.
BREAD MACHINE INSTRUCTIONS:
Add ingredients to machine according to manufacturer's instructions. NOTE: I found this recipe works best for me when I add ingredients to bread machine pan in order as listed above.
Bake on shortest cycle (NOT quick bread cycle).
If loaf falls and craters during baking cycle, decrease water slightly next time.
Dissolve yeast in honey with vegetable oil and water. Add salt and 1 1/2 cups of spelt flour. Beat well for 3-4 minutes.
Cover with damp cloth and let rest in a warm place for approximately 30 minutes or until double in size.
Add remaining flour, turning onto floured board and knead until smooth, adding flour if necessary.
Add desired additional ingredients to taste. This is where I tend to add small amounts of herbs (such as basil and/or rosemary), chia seeds (usually ground), and/or grated parmesan/asiago cheese.
Place in oiled loaf pan and cover with damp cloth. Let rise in warm place until double in size (approximately 30 minutes).
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown.
