Homemade spelt bread

Since I discovered how easy it is to make your own bread, and how much salt and sugar they put in bread you buy in stores, I am baking my own bread every couple of days. Especially spelt bread because it’s way better than ordinary white and brown bread. Making spelt bread isn’t necessarily harder than making ordinary bread.

Time needed: 25 min to prepare + 30 min to rise & bake
