Dinkel-Walnussbrot- Thank you Karin!

Thank you, Karin, for a wonderful formula!  A Keeper!


My first attempt at working with 100% spelt flour.  


I baked this bread yesterday before rushing out for the day.  It works great for a busy schedule and I could have even taken less time by not over proofing it, I'll know better next time after reading, other members advice about mixing and proofing spelt flour breads.  The 'my' crumb was to dense but the flavor is outstanding,  I loved the spices and nut combo...oh and the buttermilk!  


I finally found 2 photos, that's another story!


ADDED:  My husband had it toasted this morning, detected something he really liked in the flavor...ahhhh, I told him anise and fennel.  He's usually doesn't comment about whole grain breads to much..he said he really liked this bread...now that's something!

while a bit dense is certainly not nearly as dense as some of my plain white breads have been.

Hello Sylvia, Your loaf looks so tasty & I love the rich color of the crust.
I made Karin's Dinkel-Walnussbrot too and absolutely loved it.
I thought her formula had just the right amount of spice. I was a little worried using spelt for the first time but it worked out OK following Karin's great method and instruction.  Glad to see your success with Karin's formula!

Sylvia, your loaf looks very good - and I don't think your crumb is too dense! The spices really add a nice layer of flavor to the nutty spelt taste.


It's nice to know that my bread is such a "crowd pleaser"!


Happy baking,


Karin

It surely is a crowd pleaser.  I also thought my crumb was supposed to be dry..it was pleasantly moist which I liked very much...I did overproof this loaf.  Thanks again, Karin!
