Delicious 100% white spelt loaf which has a bit more body and colour than white wheat. This recipe worked well in a Panasonic SD254 which isn't meant to bake spelt loaves, but I selected the basic white rapid programme to get closest to the kneading and baking times stipulated for spelt if you had the Panasonic SD255 which includes a spelt programme.
1.5 teaspoons easy bake yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
400 gm white spelt
0.5 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
280 gm water
Add the ingredients to the bread maker in the listed order. I always weigh the water rather than measure by volume, because it gives greater accuracy.
On the Panasonic SD254 choose the basic bake rapid setting. This provides 15 to 20 minutes knead, 1hour rise and 35 to 40 minutes bake. The SD254 has no spelt setting and these are the closest timings to those for spelt on the SD255.
