This recipe is great for people who are mildly gluten intolerant and like to make their own bread.
Spelt flour does have gluten in it but it is a more easily digested from that that in wheat.
It is easy to make in a bread maker.
Use the Gluten free cycle (1hour 20 minutes) and ‘light’ setting.
310 ml warm water
2tsp bread yeast
1tbsp olive oil
375 gm spelt flour
pinch of salt
I put all the ingredients except the flour into the bowl and lightly mix before adding the flour.
Once the bread maker is working, I also watch the first few minutes to make sure the mix looks correct.
I do not claim to be an expert bread maker and sometimes I find that it looks a little ‘sloppy’ and that the addition of about 50gms of rice flour improves the loaf!
Note that gluten intolerance usually comes about because of poor protein digestion. (Gluten is a protein) and I have often noticed that this over all situation can be improved by the long term use of digestive enzymes designed to increase protein digestion.
