*250g sourdough starter
* 350g white spelt flour
* 180ml water
* 12-14g salt


1. Put aside 2 table spoons of sourdough starter for next baking.
2. In the bowl mix 250g sourdough starter with spelt flour and water and salt.
3. Let rise for about 2 hours. Fold the dough once during that time.
4. Move the dough onto a lightly floured surface and split into two pieces. Stretch each dough with fingers into the shape of rectangle.
5. Shape the bagguetes - roll up and move onto baking paper on the baking tray. Leave to rise one more hour.
6. Preheat the oven to 230C. Make a few cuts on the top of the bagguetes. Possibly sprinkle with seeds. Bake at 230C first ten minutes. Then another 15-20 minutes at 200C. Leave to cool down.
7. Enjoy!

Spelt Sourdough Baguette

Have you ever used a Spelt Sourdough Starter by itself for this recipe? I am having difficulty using spelt and want to be as precise as I can be the next time I try this so as not to waste more Spelt Flour.

Please could you tell me what sort of starter you are using with this recipe? Is it a Spelt starter or an I use my usual wheat one? Thanks

Hi. I used wholemeal rye starter, and spelt starter as well, but you can use any starter you have really. :).
