It has a similar appearance to wheat but is a different species and the flavor is sweet and nutty. It is frequently used to make bread, cookies and other delectable dishes that require flour to be used.

    Made it this am, and I cut it fresh, spread earth balance soy butter and drizzled maple syrup. Yum! Also how can you keep this bread from drying out? How long to leave on the counter, what to wrap it in? Put in fridge?

      Hello lovely Cheryl, thank you, I love this bread too! My current favourite is with mashed avocado, sliced beef tomatoes and sprinkled with pink Himalayan salt…to die for! I keep it wrapped up in alu foil, that way it stays fresh for up to 5 days. Hope this helps lovely! Wishing you a wonderful day! Hedi xxx

    I love seedy bread! My mom makes a homemade bread with tons of seeds and I love it. I can literally eat the whole loaf. That first picture of yours with all the toppings is great!

    So simple and delicious! I love spelt flour, it’s my favorite one whenever I don’t have to make things gluten-free. So much more flavorful than regular wheat

    I have never made a loaf of bread before so I was a bit apprehensive when I decided to give this a go. To my surprise it was pleasantly easy to make and tasted great which was a bonus. Myself and partner have decided to make one once a week for breakfasts. Thanks for the recipe x

        No degrees? Do you mean No, Degrees Centigrade/Celcius?

        Also, no second rise for this, is that right?

    This bread is so easy to make and tastes really good.
    We had it first, fresh out of the oven with just some butter as a side to soup. Yummy. Today I toasted some slices with avocado and egg. OMG….delicious.
    Will definately be added to my keeper recipes
