  • 3 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 ¾ cups warm water
  • ½ teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups whole grain flour
  • 2 ¼ cups spelt flour


Place the yeast in a large mixing bowl. Add the warm water and stir until the yeast has dissolved. 

You may now add the maple syrup and salt and stir again. 

And then add the whole grain flour and stir until you have a nice smooth and very wet batter. 

Next add the spelt flour and stir until you have a nice dough. The dough will still be a bit sticky at this point. 

Cover the mixing bowl with a clean dishcloth and place in a warm spot for 45 minutes. 

Grease or line a 9×5 bread pan and place the dough in the bread pan. 

Cover with a clean dishcloth and let sit for 20 minutes. 

Preheat the oven to 475F.

Bake in the lower part of the oven for 10 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 400F and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until the bread is a nice golden color. 

Set the bread pan on a wire rack, remove the loaf from the pan and allow the bread to cool on the wire rack.
