Spelt Quick Bread

cindy sandberg


I try to bake wheat-free as much as possible and finding recipes for bread that I actually like has not been easy! I found this recipe at Anja's Food 4 Thought. It uses spelt, which is an ancient, non-hybrid ancestor to our modern wheat. Many people with wheat sensitivities(not celiac)can eat spelt, and I've been experimenting with it. So far so good. This is an extremely simple recipe-so simple I was skeptical! It turned out really good, though! Not the same as a good ol' yeast bread, but pretty darn good! Great with jam or with cheese, or just toasted with butter. I've included my tweaks:)
