Using a Bread Machine: Hints. Spelt flour requires less mixing than normal bakers flour as the glutens are weaker. Set the bread machine on the fastest setting as most failures are caused by the spelt over rising and then collapsing before the heat is high enough to kill the yeast. You may need to adjust the flour to water ratio when using spelt in a bread machine. Weigh your flour accurately, 500gm white spelt flour : 335ml-345ml water. If your cooked loaf sinks in the middle it can be an indication of too much water cut back the water by 5ml -10ml to achieve a better end loaf. Option try 450gm flour : 300ml water.

NB: When using a bread machine use the basic or rapid bake cycle or for better results use the dough setting on your machine and bake your spelt bread in an oven.
