Easy spelt honey & herb loaf
Step by step I’m trying out new techniques and ways of making different kinds of bread. One weekend I was really craving some bruschetta but I didn’t have any ciabatta or baguettes in the house so I decided to look at some recipes and try to make my own spelt loaf. It’s not quite the same as ciabatta as there are no holes in this bread, but I’ll be trying out proper gluten-free ciabatta soon!
It’s a very easy recipe, all you have to be careful of is to not disturb the dough while it’s rising, but other than that the ingredients are very limited and the techniques are basic as well. You should use a stand mixer for this recipe however, as the dough is very wet and sticky and a dough hook will be able to handle it perfectly, whereas a spoon or your hands will struggle a lot.
The result of this easy recipe is a bread that’s ideal for using for bruschetta or toast, but I would not recommend using this for sandwiches as the crust will be too crispy!
