“I got a challah recipe from my husband and tweaked it to use spelt flour. This recipe makes a beautiful 2-pound braided challah. I like to divide the dough in 3; make two loaves and one little roll. I like to try different toppings each time I make this recipe, such as sesame seeds, dried onion flakes, granulated garlic, kosher salt, or flax seeds.” - by LORIBARRY
Original recipe yields 1 loaf
- Pour the water, olive oil, and eggs into a bread machine pan. Add salt, sugar, spelt flours, xanthan gum, and yeast. Place into bread machine and set to dough cycle. Check on the dough as it is mixing to ensure that it mixes well. Use a rubber scraper to scrape down the sides of the pan if needed.
- When the dough has finished, remove and divide into 3 pieces. Shape each piece into an 18 inch long rope. Braid the three ropes together, seal the tips together, and fold under the loaf. Place the braided loaf onto a greased baking sheet, cover with a soft cloth, and allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Brush the loaf with beaten egg, and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
- Bake in preheated oven until the challah has turned golden brown, and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom, 40 to 45 minutes.

"I used only whole grain spelt and put the dough into a bread pan to rise and cook. I used the rest of the ingredients as listed in the recipe. It is soooooo good and received thumbs up from even my ..." See morepickiest eater. My husband has allergies to wheat (luckily not gluten), so this is a great option for our family. This is the 5th recipe that I have tried and it beats all those others hands down. Thanks for a wonderful recipe : )"
"Excellent bread! I used four cups of fresh ground spelt and no xanthan gum. I used the dough cycle on my breadmaker, and then raised it in two smaller loaf pans until double and baked at 350 for 25 ..." See moreminutes. Delicious!"
