Easy Vegan Spelt Bread

What you need: 

3 cups whole or light spelt flour (organic, of course!)
1/4 cup raw sugar, or brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon sea salt
3 teaspoons dry yeast
1 3/4 cups warm water
a handful of: flax, sesame, sunflower seeds (any or all)

What you do: 

Pre-heat oven to 375*
Nice easy vegan bread recipe.
Mix all the dry ingredients together, including the seeds. Stir everything until well mixed, then add the water and keep mixing until the batter is thick and moist.
Pour into a greased loaf pan (I use olive oil), smooth out the tops and sprinkle seeds on top if you like. Cover the pan with greased plastic wrap (again, I use a little olive oil), and place a tea-towel on top. Place on the top of oven where it is warm and let it rise until it has about doubled in size (about 20 to 30 minutes). Bake at 375* for 45 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.
Remove from pan and let it cool before slicing. Enjoy some while it is still warm!

Okay! I just had my first piece and I'm delighted to say I will probably make this again! It didn't rise in a "dome" like some breads do, it was flat topped and rather crusty, but I don't mind that. I did have to work a bit to get it out of the loaf pan, so I'll grease and flour next time. I'm just so happy to have found a bread I can make myself! No packaging, absolutely fresh and 100% organic, you can't get much better! 


40 minutes rising and waiting impatiently for it to rise completely, lol. I'm very skeptical about this now. . . . but will eat it anyway! I'd hate for the ingredients to go to waste.


I suppose I should have read all the comments first! However, in my excitement of finding an "easy" bread recipe, I got carried away and began making it. It's supposed to be doubling in size but hasn't done so yet. I followed the recipe and instructions despite my instinct to want to dissolve the sugar and yeast in the water separately. I'm hoping, if this does rise, that it doesn't rise too much as some people said it did for them. . . . .will post again after it's been baked and tasted :)


I love this recipe!  I use 1 1/2 cups 105 degree water, stir in 1/4 c coconut sugar, add the yeast and allow to sit while I mix up the dry ingredients.  Stir in, and allow to rise approx 25 minutes and bake.  I bake this quite often..twice a week.


Wooohoo! I made an awesome loaf of bread with this. I had to take it out a little earlier, though, and I didn't use all the water. Other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out great :) 


Hmm.. I should have paid more attention to the "let it rise until it has about doubled in size" part, and how gooey it was. Heheh.
While rising, it spilled over the edges of the pan and onto the stove.
I saved most of the dough and put it in a bigger pan, but it didn't really rise anymore after that.
The bread was still delicious though!
Next time I'll add a little bit more salt and put it in a bigger pan right away so it can rise to be HUGE.


Does this bread do well in the bread machine?


I made this today and decided to do the starter option.  It came out beautifully and very, very tasty. I also added a lot of flax, both to the dough and on top as someone mentioned.  After it was done, I tried it with earth balance spread mixed with a little fresh garlic and parsley (yummy!) and then again later with some plum jam (double yummy!).  This is the first spelt recipe I've made and it was definitely a hit.  Thanks:)


Has anyone tried this recipe in a bread machine?  I am going to try it in my machine (with the flax, sesame and sunflower seeds also).


okay-- here's the way to get it perfect (and delicious every time!).  Mix the water and sugar into one bowl.  Add yeast and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.  In a big mixing bowl, mix spelt flour and salt.  Then mix the two together-- it will be a gloopy and wet dough.  Pour it into a greased loaf pan.  Cover with a towel and set someplace warm for 45 minutes or so.  It will rise.  DON'T punch it down.  DON"T rise again.  Just take the risen loaf and put it in the oven.
Your friends will be amazed at your delicious bread-making ability-- if your share!
