    Spelt has a nice nutty flavour and is available in most natural foods stores. Try it as a change from regular wheat.

    Knowing what size loaf [weight] and what bread machine setting would help. Looking at similar recipes, there is a problem of overflowing or not working with spelt. Would like to try it.  -  05 May 2012


    This turned out great! I had never made spelt bread and, after searching on the net, I discovered that it's supposed to be difficult to make come out right. This came out in my bread machine better than the white and wheat recipes I'd used. I used the "Quick" setting, which had 2 risings, instead of the "Basic" setting, which had 3 risings in order to cut down on kneading. Delicious! Beth, I hope you've posted your muffin and brownie recipes too--I'll search! :-)  -  04 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have been trying to find a good spelt flour bread recipe for awhile. This turned out excellent. I used skim milk instead of rice milk and added 5 tablespoons of cracked grains (flax, rye, millet, etc). I used the quick bread cycle and selected light crust on my bread machine. Then I buttered the crust as soon as it was done and put it in an airtight container to soften the crust. It turned out great.  -  17 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
