I baked this loaf yesterday morning with some spelt flour I received form Tasmania, Australia.I toasted up a slice this morning and it really has a nice flavor.
Great baking all the way around.
Sure it tastes as good as it looks
What a gorgeous looking loaf. I can almost taste it, it looks that good.
Thanks for the kind comments!
That is such A beautiful crust ! I am enjoying the ears on your baby :). That probably tastes wonderful.
What a beautiful loaf! Color, shape and scoring.
I have been experimenting with spelt lately too. I like how adding a bit makes my whole grain dough handle when shaping.
If you ever want to try a 100% Spelt loaf that is a favorite around here you might check out JuergenKrauss' blog where he posted one several years ago that is wonderful.
Casey & Janet, Thank you both for the comments. The loaf has a nice subtle almost nutty flavor.
Thanks Janet for the heads up on the whole spelt bread recipe, I will look for it.
So was that Tasmanian spelt flour available in the US?
Sadly, no, it's not available here in the US. The flour was a thank you gift from Graham & son at Companion Bakery in Oatlands Tasmania. I wrote a review of of two Bay area bakeries for their blog at Sourdough.com.
The flour is from Callington Mill, which is across the street from Companion Bakery. The mill is a restored !800's Georgian windmill.
I received 1 kilo of the spelt and two kilo's of the wheat flour light sifted. The flour is some of the nicest flour I've ever used. I wish I could obtain more of the flour but shipping from Australia makes it really expensive flour.
