  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the spelt flour, sesame seeds, salt, molasses, baking soda and milk until well blended. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Placing a tin of the same size over the top of the loaf while baking gives it a lovely crust.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I wondered when I read everyone else's comments why they would all be reviewing it but with substitutions. But I'm glad they did. I can't use milk or sugar, so I substituted maple syrup and ric...

Wow, this was super-easy to make and very flavorful. I used an 8 grain cereal instead of the seeds and added about 1/8 cup honey along with the molassas. Also some golden raisins. Probably ca...

I love this...I made it once with sesame seed and once with flax seed and I prefer the flax seed. I also used a mini loaf pan and baked them for 30 minutes. Just wonderful!
