j and i have tried at least 12 other spelt bread recipes before this one. they were all too cakey, crumbly, or brick-like. but this one is perfect every time. we use our bread maker, and the loaf turns out pretty rustic, and so good.
perfect bread maker spelt loaf recipe:
2 tsp yeast
2 1/2 cups spelt flour
1 tbsp organic sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup water
1 heaping tsp guar gum or xantham gum (super important)
add to bread machine in that order, use quick bread setting. done.
