Spelt bread Recipe

Ingredients for people

  • Spelt : 300 g
  • Strong white bread flour : 200 g
  • Fine salt : 2 pinch(es)
  • Dried yeast : 7 g
  • Water : 350 ml
Method
  • 1

    Preheat the oven to 230'C.

  • 2

    Sift bowl flours into a large bowl and add the salt and the yeast. Combine the ingredients, make a well in the centre and slowly add the tepid water. Mix with a spoon until the ingredients start to come together.

  • 3

    Once the dough starts to come together, remove from the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for 7-8 minutes until it is smooth. Shape into a ball.

    Clean and lightly oil the mixing bowl. Return the dough to the bowl and cover with a damp, warm cloth. Place in a warm place and leave to prove for 50-60 minutes.

  • 5

    Once the dough has doubled in size, place it back onto a surface and knead to knock the air out of it. Re-shape the dough into a ball and place on a baking tray. Cover the dough with cling film and allow to prove for 25 minutes.

  • 6

    Remove the cling film and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Tap the bottom of the loaf to check the cooking - it will sound hollow when ready.

Chef's tip

«Try and prove the bread at 25'C as this is temperature at which the yeast will work best.»
