German Spelt Special

Submitted by: MAMASUDS

Introduction

This is a delicious favorite from my kitchen. If you don't have a grain mill, you can buy spelt flour at the health food store. Some stores will even grind it fresh for you. My kids love it and prefer it to store bought bread. This is a delicious favorite from my kitchen. If you don't have a grain mill, you can buy spelt flour at the health food store.

Ingredients

    500 grams Spelt grains
    100 grams bread flour
    50 grams cracked buckwheat
    50 grams sunflower seeds
    1 package yeast
    1 tsp raw sugar or honey
    2 tsp sea salt
    30 grams Balsamico vinegar
    450 grams warm water

Directions

Divide spelt grains into two portions. Grind 250 grams coarsley and the second 250 grams finely.

Disolve yeast and sugar in warm water.

Combine all dry ingredients, making a well in the middle of the dry mix.

Once the yeast has been activated and began to foam, add the vinegar.

Pour liquid into the well in the dry mixture and begin mixing. If you have kneeding hooks on your mixer, they work great for this bread. Mix and kneed the dough for 3 minutes. If the dough is too dry or too wet at this point, make adjustments by adding a Tablespoon of flour or Tablespoon of water. Kneed for an additional 3 minutes.

Place dough in a greased bowl to rise. After it has doubled in size, punch it down, kneed shortly and form into a loaf. Place it in greased pan and allow to double in size.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350° F ( 200° C)
