I love using spelt flour in cakes and breads, it gives the unusual nutty flavour. Combined with seeds makes a delicious and healthy loaf.
- 400g spelt flour
- 1tsp salt
- 1tsp dried yeast
- splash of olive oil
- 1tsp maple syrup
- 300ml lukewarm water
- 1tbsp poppy seeds
- 1/2 cup mixed seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, linen seeds etc)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, then mix until smooth. Knead the dough by hand or in a stand mixer until stretchy and smooth. This should take about 10 minutes in a mixer or twice as long by hand.
Transfer the dough into a greased loaf pan (20cm x 10cm) and leave to rise about 60-80minutes. Sprinkle with some extra seeds.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200C for about 45 minutes, baked loaf should sound hollow then tapped underneath.
Leave to cool.
