I love baking bread, but rarely do it because it means planning ahead for rising time and kneading, which I am terrible at. So when Oscar asked if I could bake some bread I went searching for a no-knead recipe, and found this one at Barbara Bakes. The added bonus was that it was a spelt recipe and I didn’t need to convert it! It uses yeast, requires an overnight rise, no kneading and is super yummy. Especially with home made soup.

An easy, delicious bread recipe that does not require a mixer with a dough hook or kneading.
- 200g wholemeal spelt flour
- 300g white spelt flour
- 1 3/4 cup warm water
- 2 1/4 teaspoons dry active yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- White spelt flour (extra for dusting)
The original recipe called for misting the dough with water before placing in the oven, spraying water inside the oven, then repeating after 1 minute. I didn't have a spray bottle, so I used my fingers to flick water over the dough, then placed a pan of water inside the oven instead.
