I baked a spelt buttermilk bread that was indroduced on the facebook page of my local oranic grocery. It was published during the early day of the corona crisis when all shops and supermarkets run short of yeast and all kinds of flour.
Ingredients for a rectangular bakin tin (length 30, width 10, height 10 cm):
- 500 g spelt flour (me: freshly ground spelt)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp bread spice (me: caraway, cummin, ground fennel seed)
- 1/2 tbs oil
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 500 ml buttermilk *)
- 100 g sunflower seeds
- 30 g flaxseeds
Mix flour, salt, bread spice, oil and baking soda in a bowl.
Warm up buttermilk until it reaches room temperature, add to the other ingredients in the bowl.
Knead thouroughly with dogh hook of your hand mixer or food processorfor at least 10 minutes. Then add sunflower seeds and flaxseed.
Grease a baking tin and dust with some flour. Fill in the dough, cover and let rise for at least 30 minutes at room temperature.
Pre-heat oven at 180 °C circulating air. Put a bowl with water on the ground of your oven. Bake bread for about 50 minutes – depends on your oven. The bread should sound hollow when knocking on the bottom.
Now let cool the bread under a moist tea towel.
*) Tip for vegans: You can make vegan buttermild by adding two tablespoons apple vinegar to 500 ml plant milk. Let sit for 15 minutes, after that you can use the result like the buttermilk in the recipe.
