Wholemeal Spelt bread

Pre-heat oven to 200°C

500g Wholemeal Spelt (or white works just as well)

150g 5 Seed Blend (some extra for topping)

10-12g dried active yeast or 32-34g fresh yeast (I use a bit more yeast for the wholemeal flour as it's heavier and needs a bit more lift)

1/2 tsp salt

500ml water


Mix all dry ingredients together, dissolve the fresh yeast in warm water (dried yeast can be added to the flour/seed mix) and mix well with the water.

It's a very wet dough, more like a cake mix but that's how it should be.

Brush a loaf tin with olive oil, fill with the mixture, brush top with Olive oil and sprinkle extra seed on top.

Place in pre-heated oven for 1 hour

then take out of the tin and put loaf back in for another 5-10min (usually 5min are enough)

Let it cool down and enjoy



I started using the 5 seed blend instead of the original

50g Sesame seeds

50g Sunflower seeds

50g Linseeds

(which I've used for the loafs in the photo)

Either works really well

Happy Baking :)
