    When making this recipe, you need to know what to expect from a spelt bread. Spelt is very healthy, but does not contain gluten like its wheat-relative. This means that as the yeast converts the sugars to gas (which normally causes a pillowy, airy dough) the bread dough without gluten cannot retain the air in bubbles in the dough. The result is a very typical European bread that is heavy, dense, can be sliced SUPER thin and served much like soft crackers. It is also, however, dense with nutrients and I thought this was a very good gluten-free recipe for bread!  -  14 Jul 2008


    This bread was horrible!!! I followed all the instructions, used new ingredients, right cycle, etc. Don't waste your time or ingredients.  -  14 Jul 2008


    When I made this bread, I was concerned about the small quantity of liquid. The mixture was stiffer than other recipes I have tried. The result was ok. It tends to break when sliced or buttered. The loaf was 9 cm high. I am used to baking wheat type breads and they come up to the top of the breadmaker pan - 13cm  -  23 Mar 2011
