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.

  5. Preheat oven to 220 and flour your work top.
  6. Take the bulked up dough out of the bowl and give it a good kneading for 10 minutes. The dough should still be sticky.

    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

    Homemade bread is the best! Especially when you’ve timed it so that it its still warm when you slice it. And I love a seeded bread…Mmmmm

    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

    This looks wonderful, is there anything that can be used as an alternative to yeast?

    • Hedi Hearts
      May 18, 2016 at 11:23 am (2 years ago)

      I have never tried, but apparently baking soda and lemon can be a great substitute Kelly. Hedi xx

    Can’t wait to try. Do you bake it at 220 degrees Fahrenheit?

    • Hedi Hearts
      May 18, 2016 at 2:48 pm (2 years ago)

      No degrees lovely! Hedi xx

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

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

        • Hedi Hearts
          June 12, 2016 at 6:01 pm (2 years ago)

          Jay, celsius, I am based in the UK. And yes no second rise. Hope the bread turns out well. Hedi xx

      Yes, it is, but watch it towards the end as some ovens are very temperamental xxx

    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

    hi, this bread is wonderful, I made it without any seeds as my BF cannot digest them, bread was delicious but looks totally different from yours, mine is basically kind of white? I used organic spelt flour and organic dry yeast..hmmm
    anyway beautifully yummy, thanks 🙂

    Hi Hedi this bread was a monumental failure for me. First there wasn’t enough water to soak up all the flour & then it didn’t rise. I was using sprouted spelt flour. Could that have been the reason please? Also have you ever tried making bread with gluten free flour, like teff? Many thanks Liz x

    • Hedi Hearts
      December 7, 2017 at 10:54 am (2 months ago)

      Hello Liz, oh no!Sprouted spell flour shouldn’t be a problem, so not sure what happened. I had loads of readers making this recipe with all sorts of flours, so give it a go and let me know Liz. Good luck, Hedi x x
