A healthy, wholewheat spelt loaf. Try making your own homemade bread to give your sandwiches a whole new level of amazingness this week!
Homemade bread is one of my favourite things to do at the weekend. It’s something you can devote an afternoon too, without it REALLY taking that much effort… most of the time is just spent waiting. But the end result is something SO much better than anything you can get in the shops!
When the lovely people at Jamie Oliver Bakeware asked me to create a healthy, homemade bread using their fabulous loaf tin, it took me about 2 seconds to say yes! When making bread, one of the key things is having the right tin. Bread is a pretty big time investment, so to spend all that time and effort making something, only to have it come out sticking to the tin is NOT what we want.
This gorgeous, pale blue tin avoids that completely. It’s been designed with high walls to help you make the perfectly shaped loaf every time, and a non stick coating with a 5 year guarantee!
Spelt flour gives this loaf a beautiful, dark flavour, and mixing it with all purpose flour helps keep the loaf light and fluffy. The seeds on top give a nice crunch and a little extra nutrients! I chose to add a mixed bunch of seeds, but you can really use any seeds you like, if you have a favourite, go ahead and use all of those!
Make sure you read my guide on how to get your dough to rise EVERY time, for my top bread making tips!
This loaf is perfect for use with sweet or savoury food and it toasts really well. I hope you like it as much as I do!
