Spelt Bread Just Out of the Oven


Had I not been paying attention to coming weather, I  would not have been able to predict that I would likely work from home today. I then wouldn’t have had, to go with bean soup, bread that needs 24 hours to develop.

    Your spelt bread looks fantastic! I’ve been thinking about it all morning, and looked up some recipes on the internet. None look as good as yours. Yours looks like a kind of sour dough. Do you have time to give us the recipe?

    My go to bread recipe is the “no knead” bread from the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/08/dining/081mrex.html?_r=0. I used all spelt flour instead of bread flour. Next time I’d use a little less water or a little more flour or do a mix of what and spelt to make up for difference between spelt and wheat flours. The recipe also stands up to one third whole wheat or rye instead of all bread flour. I did an extra rise for a couple of hours, which contributed to its sourdough like characteristics.

    I remember trying this recipe a few years ago. Mine turned out to be a really runny mess. Yours looks so good! I’ll add your comments to the recipe I just printed out and give it a try. First to find the flour. Maybe I’ll just order it from King Arthur Flour.
