Spelt Bread and Pizza: HBinFive

Spelt Bread and Pizza: HBinFive

The second bread in the HBinFive April 1st Bread Braid, is Olive Spelt Bread. I don’t particularly like olives so I omitted them.

I made a free-form artisan loaf.  However, once I tasted it, I realized this dough would make great sandwich bread.  The addition of yogurt makes it very moist and delicious! I also like that it’s made with mostly spelt flour.
