White Spelt loaf


560g White Spelt flour

10g Salt

7g Yeast

Add the above to a bowl and mix, then slowly add ...

300g of warm water

20g sunflower oil (other oils can be used)


These can be added separatley or together, mix until combined, then knead for 10 minute.  I use a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment.

Cover and leave in a warm draft free place to prove for 20-30 minute.

turn out on to a floured surface, stretch out and roll up to shape, transfer to proving basket for second prove until it has doubled in size 1-2 hours.

Pre heat oven as hot as possible.  Transfer to baking tray or stone. I cook mine on a pizza stone at 240 C for 15-20 minutes.

Remove from oven and leave to cool.

Sugar? Grams?

Is this recipe meant to have no sugar in it? My dough’s not rising at all. Also the liquid quantities are in grams too. Is that a mistake? I’ve assumed you mean mls.
