Original recipe yields 2 big loaves

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the spelt flour, sesame seeds, salt, molasses, baking soda and milk until well blended. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Placing a tin of the same size over the top of the loaf while baking gives it a lovely crust.

As far as spelt bread recipes go, this is by far the best I've tried. It is also very forgiving and easy to experiment with. I have tried this recipes with flax, sesame and sunflower seeds (in various combinations) and it has turned out well every time. Much like other reviewers, I add honey (about 1/8 cup) and 1 tsp of xantan gum when I have it. Another to die for combination my family enjoys is cinnamon raisin. 3/4 cups raisins (soaked in water for 15 minutes and drained) and cinnamon to taste (approx 2tsp for me)... when toasted with butter is fantastic!

This recipe IS truly simple & very user friendly. I dont normally bake bread, but due to my sons wheat allergy, I thought I'd try this spelt recipe. Now...not being totally equiped with all ingredients, I used alot of substitutes. ie: had no sesame seeds, so I used half poppy seeds and half crushed blanched almonds; had no molasses, so used part brown sugar and part maple syrup to make up the tbsp; had no cows milk so used a rice milk. Oh and I added a touch more b/soda. All I can say is this was one fantastic loaf of bread! It rose up beautifully and was soooo yummy. So I guess I played around with this recipe due to lack of exact ingredients, but must say I had alot of fun making the bread. Thanks so much Jean for sharing this great bread recipe! YYYYUM!

This bread lives up to its name! Very easy to make, and quite tasty! I omitted the sesame seeds and used honey instead of molasses. Good stuff. Thanks for the recipe!
