KAMUT® Khorasan Spelt Bread

Ingredients

  • 250g Doves Farm Organic Stoneground KAMUT® Khorasan Wholemeal Flour
  • 250g Doves Farm Organic Stoneground Wholemeal Spelt Flour
  • 1 tsp Doves Farm Quick Yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 375ml tepid water
  • 2 tbsp oil

Method

  1. Put the KAMUT® and spelt flours, yeast, sugar and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.
  2. Stir in the water, and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the oil.
  3. Using your hands, gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  4. Knead the dough in the bowl, or on a work surface, for 100 presses.
  5. Cover the dough with oiled cling film and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about an hour.
  6. Oil a 1kg/2lb bread tin.
  7. Knead the dough for another 100 presses.
  8. Shape the dough, put it into the prepared tin, cover with oiled cling film and leave it to rise in a warm place for 35 minutes.
  9. Pre-heat the oven.
  10. Remove the cling film and bake for 35-40 minutes. You will know it’s done when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  11. Leave to cook on a wire rack.
