Honey & Spelt Bread

This Honey & Spelt Bread is one of my favourite bread recipes. The mixture of honey and spelt is wonderful. I like to have this with butter or toasted with a little honey. Very yummy!

Spelt flour is very good for those people who are gluten intolerant. I have used strong white bread flour in this recipe but you can substitute this will gluten free alternatives. I would use a mixer with a dough hook rather than to kneed by hand as it is much easier.



400g strong white bread flour (or Gluten free bread flour)

100g spelt

100g sponge

10g fresh yeast

5-8g salt

350g warm water
