Making Spelt Bread by Hand


Spelt flour has a higher protein content and a more delicate gluten structure than conventional wheat. This means that you shouldn’t have to knead Spelt dough for as long as conventional wheat dough. Remember as well that Spelt flour soaks up liquid more than factory made wheat so don’t be afraid to add a spot more water or milk to keep the dough supple and to avoid it drying out.


Spelt Bread with Yeast


Spelt bread with yeast tends to prove quicker than wheat bread so it’s best to reduce the proving time for both single and double rise recipes before baking as normal.


Spelt Bread in a Bread Maker Machine


Because the proving time for Spelt flour is shorter than for wheat flour, a bread maker machine will tend to over prove a Spelt recipe so if using a machine it would be best to use the dough programme, removing the dough before the end of the cycle and then baking the loaf in a conventional oven.


Spelt Sourdough


Sourdough bread is delicious made with Spelt flour which works very quickly with a sourdough culture.


Spelt Baking Tips


Because the gluten in Spelt flour is more delicate than that in wheat flour it is better to bake it in a tin to support the loaf.


Spelt dough is a bit less dense than wheat dough so why not add some honey to the mix to give a lighter, pliable texture and add to the wonderful nutty flavour.


To loosen the bread, why not add some Ola Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil, it will work better than fat or butter and is loaded with Omega 3, 6 and 9.
