The Recipe: Simple and Quick

This quick spelt bread recipe is as easy as they come.

  1. Simply mix flour, seeds, salt, and yeast by hand. Add any additional spices as you see fit.
  2. Add the fruit vinegar and water, mix together using a hand mixer.
  3. Thoroughly knead the dough one final time.
  4. Grease the bread pan with a bit of oil and add your dough.
  5. Sprinkle a handful of sesame seeds over the loaf and it’s off into the (cold, not yet heated) oven.
  6. Set your oven to 400°F and let the bread bake for around 50 minutes. The time it takes your oven to warm up is enough to let the dough rise.

Enjoy it as you please – either warm and slathered with butter or a vegetarian or vegan spread.
