This nutritious Whole Grain Spelt Bread with flax and sesame seeds is super easy to make. It is also much better and more economical than store bought bread.
Add water and honey and stir until a dough starts to form. When you can no longer stir, turn out the dough on a floured surface and knead into a firm dough ball. The dough should be stretchy and elastic. When tearing of a piece, you should be able to stretch it gently to become transparent. This is called the "Window Pane Test". Alternatively, you can make the dough in a stand mixer with dough hook attachment.
Lightly grease a loaf pan (9x5 inches). Turn the risen dough out onto a floured surface and stretch it out gently. Shape it into a loaf by first folding in the sides towards the center. Then roll the dough up from the bottom and gently tuck under the ends.
Place the dough in the loaf pan - seam side down. Brush the top with water and sprinkle with extra seeds. Cover the loaf and let rise for 30 mins to 1 hour. The loaf should look obviously bigger than before, but doesn't exactly have to be 'doubled in size'.
Preheat oven to 400° F. With a sharp knife make 3-4 diagonal cuts across the top of the risen loaf. Bake the spelt bread loaf for about 40 minutes until the top is golden brown and crusty. When tapping the bottom of the baked bread there should be a hollow sound. If using an instant thermometer, the internal temperature should be 190° F. Let the spelt loaf cool on a wire rack. Slice only once fully cooled.
