While this recipe is easy to make, you will need to plan at least an hour and a half for it to rise and bake. No bread machine needed!
1) Combine warm water, yeast, honey, rosemary, and olive oil. Stir in salt and 1 1/2 cups Spelt Flour. Beat well for a few minutes until ingredients are well mixed.
2) Cover with a damp cloth (I used damp paper towels) and leave dough in a warm place for 30 minutes.
3) Add remaining flour, mix well, and knead by hand. Set aside again (I placed my dough at this point in a pie tie that I had coated with olive oil) in a warm place for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
4) Bake for about 30 minutes until brown. Serve warm. Delicious with a little olive oil, butter, or coconut spread to add to each slice.
Tip: If you are cooking for one, slice half the loaf and place the sliced half in your freezer so you can use some later in the week (or even a later month). When you are ready for a slice of your homemade bread, take the slice from your freezer, microwave for 30 seconds, then toast in a toaster, toaster oven, or lightly oiled pan on the stove.
