This was easy and great tasting bread. it was a bit heavy,possibly because I used buttermilk as the liquid. As good as it tasted, could have used the loaf as a door stop. I did a variation with rye flour and unbleached bread flour (below) which is fantastic. Modified -Very Simple Spelt Bread Variation with Rye Simple Spelt Bread Variations ( one loaf) Variation #1 w/rye flour 2 cups spelt flour 1 cup rye flour 1 cup unbleached bread flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 teaspoon salt 2 1/4 cups skim 1 table spoon molasses 3 table spoon honey ** increase honey and molasses by a table spoon each for sweeter bread DIRECTIONS Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients until well blended. Place liquids ingredients in a jar or container, mix well, microwave for one minute. Create a well in dry ingredients and half liquid, mix while adding remainder of liquid. Fold the mixture over and over several times. Place mixture in a Pam sprayed loaf pan. Sprinkle top with sesame , sunflower, or seeds of your choice. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Placing foil loosely over the top of the loaf while cooking and removing the last half hour of baking enhances the crust. Finally, the last ten minutes I brush loaf top olive oil and place back in for the final ten minutes baking. Sometimes mix garlic powder with olive oil. Everything can be mixed in 4 to 5 minutes ea
