I have fallen in love with making bread at home. I've been baking cakes and sweet treats at home with spelt flour for over 10 years.  Then when Covid hit, I had more time, I started experimenting with baking bread with spelt flour.
Currently, I am only using fast dried yeast, as I am still perfecting the art of sourdough bread using spelt flour.  It is tricky to master baking with spelt flour as it doesn't rise quite as much as white bread flour and there's less gluten so it is not as stretchy. However, the taste and texture are amazing. I have compiled a list of my favourite and most popular spelt flour bread recipes.

Baking with spelt flour is perfect for anyone following an alkaline diet. I recently chatted with a neighbour and he mentioned that his mother has recently swapped over to eating spelt flour to help with her fibromyalgia symptoms. I am not an expert and I don't have any scientific evidence to prove this, but I personally have found digestive benefits for eating Spelt flour instead and wheat flour.

I am so thrilled with my results I started to share my recipes with online tutorials on YouTube so many others all over the world can benefit from baking bread using spelt flour. I am still perfecting and practising each week, but it is one of those skills where practice makes perfect. I have never been a bread lover, but now baking my own recipes with spelt flour, I am converted.

What are the benefits of Spelt flour?

Spelt flour is a good source of fibre and protein. The texture is light and airy like wheat flour and can be substituted in baking cakes, cookies, pancakes and bread for a healthier alternative to wheat flour. It was a staple crop and widely grown in Roman times around 5000 bc. According to Sharpham Park flours, the Roman army called it their 'marching grain' due to the slow release energy qualities.

  • Easy to digest
  • High in fibre
  • Lighter than some wholemeal flours - it bakes very similar to wheat flour
  • High in nutrients B vitamins, manganese, phosphorus and niacin
