  • hey! for some reason, this recipe bulked on me. I got a 5×5 lump of loaf on Breadman Plus as a result, which was highly dense. How do I get it to be fluffier and less dense? If I cut a slice, it ends up being 4x the calorie count because it is so dense and it lumped up. Please send me some info or comment on the page for a response. I’d love to know! I followed the directions appropriately and set the thing for 1 – 1 1/2 lb (the only other option besides 2lb, which this isn’t)


  • It seems that Spelt has an “extremely fragile” gluten content (While that may be a negative from the perspective of getting your bread to rise, it is also what makes spelt bread easier to digest). Spelt does not rise quite as high as wheat flour. But, spelt tastes so good, you probably won’t even notice that your bread is underinflated.

    I found this on http://www.ochef.com/

  • I am looking for a cranberry-orange bread recipe. Hope some one hase one.

  • Sorry to hear it Susan, I like mine fluffy too and am somewhat disappointed- though what I do read is we both may have better results by doing 1. a white spelt and raw spelt flour mix and 2. making it by hand (not by machine). Seems one site said it takes spelt longer to get “up” than regular flour, and our machines are so “pushy”. I noticed the recipe up top adds gluten….. hmmm, verily, a clue to its stubborness to rise when we’d like it to rise. Thanks, Natalie, for the confirmation, but we’d still like a little fluff. Back to our kitchens for Susan and me, to that hinterland of recipe research and striving for the, if not “perfect” spelt bread, a fluffier one.

  • Gosh it was Divine who liked the fluffly. Pardon on my faux pas.

  • Hi in regards to the slower rising I use the bread machine up to the second rise then I take it out then hand kneed and raise in a tin and cook in the regular oven. This way it gets as much rising time as needed.

  • I made this recipe last night and because of the vital wheat gluten I was expecting a lighter loaf than what resulted. I used the whole wheat cycle and based on other comments I suspect my 2 paddle machine beat the heck out of the gluten in the dough on this setting. It still tastes wonderful with a very crisp crust and even textured interior. Next time I will try a more gentle cycle to see if that helps. The recipe didn’t specify low fat goat milk so I used whole goat milk – 3.5% mf. Did this have any effect on the result? Also not specified was loaf size. I used 1.5 pound setting (the smallest my machine will make) but I think a 1 pound loaf setting would be more appropriate.
