Hildegard's 100% Spelt Bread

Ingredients

400 grams spelt flakes
15 grams salt
40 grams fresh yeast (16 grams instant yeast)
200 milliliters milk, lukewarm (I used soy milk....)
500 milliliters water, lukewarm
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon sunflowerseed oil

Preparation

1
Mix spelt flakes and spelt flour with the salt. Dissolve yeast in milk and combine everything to a sponge. Cover the bowl with a hand towel and let rest for about 15-20 minutes. It is crumbly.
2
Add water and lemon juice to the sponge and knead for at least 15 minutes gradually adding the sunflower oil. I was laughing when I first started with the big blob of goo. It did come together, have faith and patience. It is not every day you get to play with gakky goo. Have fun.
3
Form dough ball and coat with warm water. I placed mine in a bowl.
4
Cover again with a hand towel and let double in size. About an hour.
5
Knead for another 2-3 minutes.
6
Cut dough in 2 equal halves and place each in a baking pan.
7
Cut the surface of both breads about 5 mm deep and let rise again until doubled in size. I left it for about 30 minutes.
8
Bake the first 15 minutes at 200 °C [400F], then lower heat to 195 °C [385F] and bake for another 30 minutes.
