Spelt bread is a wonderful alternative for people who are intolerant to gluten or need a wheat-free loaf. This old-fashioned recipe is is tried and true -- and easy to prepare.
Things You'll Need
- 2 9-by-5-inch loaf pans
- 8 c. organic spelt flour
- 1/2-c. sesame seeds
- 1/2-tsp. salt, or to taste
- 1 tbsp. blackstrap molasses
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 4-1/4 c. organic milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Meanwhile, grease two 9-by-5-inch loaf pans.
Mix together the spelt flour, sesame seeds, salt, molasses, baking soda and milk in a large bowl until well blended.
Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
Bake the bread for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until golden. Placing a tin of the same size over the top of each loaf while baking gives it a lovely crust.
