Quick German Spelt Bread

Woooohoooo! Yes, this tastes like a real bread. I baked it for the first 4 years here in Australia when I was missing good old German bread. It is super quick and there is seriously no excuse to not giving it a try. The only thing you will regret is that you didn’t do it earlier.

Quick German Spelt Bread

Prep Time

10 min

Cook Time

45 min

Servings

1 large loaf

What's inside

  • 500g spelt flour

  • 150g mixed seeds (poppy, sesame, pepitas, sunflower)

  • 4g dry yeast

  • 2 cups water (500ml)

How to

  1. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.

  2. Preheat the oven to 250°C.

  3. Add all the ingredients in the order above to a mixing bowl. Mix well immediately.

  4. Pour the dough into a loaf tin and put it directly into the oven on the middle tray for 30 – 45 minutes.

  5. After 10 minutes, cut the top of the bread with a sharp knife to avoid uncontrolled cracking.

  6. Once the bread is ready you will smell it. Test it by sticking a tooth stick into the bread. If it comes out clean, it’s ready; if there is still some dough on it, leave it in for another 2-3 minutes before you test again. You can also switch off the oven at this point, the remaining heat will be enough.
