spelt bread

with seeds

Whole spelt flour  (I usually don’t measure the flour; I just keep adding flour until it is not too sticky when forming the loaves)

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup flax seeds

1/4 cup sesame seeds, roasted

2 1/2 cups warm water

½ Cup warm water for the yeast and sweetener

2 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon salt

1/2 teaspoon honey or sucanat

1 ¼ Tablespoon Yeast


Roast the sesame seeds and set aside. Grease 2 large or 3 small bread pans. Dissolve yeast and sweetener in the 1/2 cup of water. 

Place the 2 1/2 cups of water in a large bowl and add the salt, lemon juice, and the (yeast, honey and water solution), then slowly add part of the flour (not too much that it is too thick to whisk), whisk it in with a hand whisker, or mix in a mixer 8 minutes, add the rest of the flour and the seeds and mix until a smooth dough is formed that does not stick to clean hands.


Form loaves and put into loaf pans and let dough rise until it doubles. Preheat oven 400 F and bake for 10 minutes and then bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until browned.


The bread should come out of the pans easily when they are done.
