Organic Spelt Loaf recipe for your Breadmaker

                - tried and tested recipe using  Maple Farm Kelsale flour

Spelt has a great nutty flavour and although it is not gluten free many people find it easier to digest than standard wheat.  We have used a touch of Rye in the recipe for added flavour but a 50/50 split of white and wholemeal spelt works equally as well.  Olive oil is used instead of butter and no sugar is required!

Total flour content 500g makes a medium size loaf.


235g  White spelt

240g  Wholemeal spelt 

25g    Rye

1½ teaspoons  Dry fast acting yeast

1½ teaspoons     Salt 

340ml      Tepid Water


1½ tablespoons  Olive oil


Put the yeast into the breadmaker first.  Mix the flour and salt together then pour over the yeast.  Add the water then the olive oil. 


Spelt flour proves (or rises) much faster than ordinary wheat and when we used the recommended breadmaking cycle for spelt flour, we found that the bread would collapse.  Spelt flour also requires less kneading so we selected the shortest cycle which on the Panasonic happened to be the gluten free programme.

or find the equivalent rapid-bake programme on your breadmaker.

Total time 1hr 50 mins.
