Vegan 3 Seeded Spelt Bread

Its been a while, i baked bread at home, if i dont bake a weekend, everyone at home will complain that am not baking at home. And one of my recent visit to a nearby organic shop pulled me to get a packet of spelt flour. Spelt is one among the wheat varieties and its one of the ancient grains which is very much used in the place of wheat flour. Since this grain is completely healthy, they are used in many European countries like Germay , Austria where spelt loaves and rolls are widely available in bakeries. And the unripe spelt are dried and eaten as well. Beer is brewed from spelt in Bavaria and Belgium. Spelt is an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, several vitamins and many dietary minerals. Since this flour is high in protein and low in gluten lends a slightly sweet and nutty flavor to the bread.

Spelt flour is becoming more common in other places all because pople who are allergic to wheat can sometimes still eat spelt. Making bread out of this incredible bread is definitely an art.Though sourdough starter is used in preparing spelt flour bread to get some sourdough spelt breads, i opted for preparing the dough a day before and leaving it in room temperature for 24 hours to get some sourness to the bread. And this worked awesome. You can see the crumb of the bread na, how its looks. This spelt bread came extremely delicious and quite nutty coz of the seeds i used in this bread. I used flaxseeds, black poppy seeds and sunflower seeds to make this simple loaf very much delicious and flavourful on the same time. You might have noticed that am running a month of blogging marathon with 4 different themes for 4 weeks. And with this Spelt bread, we are completely our third week of blogging marathon with Wholegrains as i picked this theme for my 3rd week of blogging marathon.
