White Spelt Bread

Makes 1 loaf

White Spelt bread is naturally a pale creamy colour and full of flavour.  It will prove and rise a little more quickly than conventional wheat flour, so bake it as soon as it has doubled in size.

Change Quantities:
  1. Put the flour, yeast and sugar into a large bowl and blend them together.
  2. Pour in the water, and stir until everything looks craggy and lumpy, then stir in the salt.
  3. Stir in the oil.
  4. Using your hands gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  5. Knead the dough for 100 presses, in the bowl or on a work surface. Avoid adding flour.
  6. Cover the dough with a large upturned bowl and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take about an hour.
  7. Rub some oil around the inside of a 1kg/2lb loaf tin.
  8. Knead the dough for another 100 presses.
  9. Shape the dough and put it into your prepared tin.
  10. Invert a large mixing bowl over the tin and leave it to rise in a warm place for 35 minutes.
  11. Pre-heat the oven.
  12. Bake the loaf for 40-45 minutes. You will know it’s done when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

I have done this loaf for a number of years and it always give great results. My children really like it. Strangely though the amount of water says 300ml on packet but 350ml on website. Personally I only used 300ml and it works perfect everyone.

Hi Stephanie and many thanks for your review.  We have since updated this recipe and it now should be 300ml as per back of our flour bag. Best wishes, Doves Farm.

As others suggest, I think this should be 300ml of water not 350ml - I did it with 350ml and it was more batter than dough (still tasty though - just lost a load over the side of the tin and as we are in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis any lost flour is a great shame!). Also, if you look on the back of the bag of flour it says 300ml water for 500g flour. Note to self: check pack and/or reviews first.

I have just made the white spelt loaf. Followed instructions correctly and it came out fabulous. Will definitely be making it again.

Fabulous result! Used exact recipe amounts x2 (as I always make two loaves at the same time and freeze one.) Perfect rise, texture and taste. Having used this and many of the Dove bread flours I have found it very important to ensure no draughts/change of temperture can get to the proving area, also the kneeding has to be done properly!
