How to Adapt A Wheat Bread Recipe to Spelt
Reprinted from www.resurgentgrains.com. Check them out for great recipes.
Gluten in spelt is very different than the gluten in wheat - spelt gluten is very sensitive. To bake great bread with spelt adjust your wheat bread recipes this way:
- Use 25% less water
- Mix dough slowly, gently and only for a short time. Do not over mix! The spelt dough will be slightly sticky when it's ready for the oven.
