Breakfast bread with spelt - a good start to the day!

When you smell freshly baked bread before breakfast, you know that it will be a good start of the day.


pcs breakfast bread
  • 3 dl whole milk
  • 350 gram sifted spelt flour
  • 70 gram whole spelt flour
  • 0,5 pack fresh yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp good olive oil

On the weekends we always tend to have breakfast together. We do not get up early, but I usually get up a little before the others and prepare for breakfast. Eating a good and long breakfast together when it is a day off I think is incredibly nice. Enjoy a longer breakfast and chat together. My wife does not tolerate wheat flour so well and therefore I make more and more food with spelt flour. These breakfast breads are very good! I take in both good olive oil and honey for extra good taste.

Step 1

Start by heating the milk to about 37 degrees and pour into a bowl. In the lukewarm milk I add the yeast and stir until the yeast has dissolved. Then add honey, salt, cardamom and olive oil and stir well.

Step 2

Measure out sifted spelt flour and whole spelt flour and mix together. Add to the milk mixture little by little. Stir well with a ladle. When you have a nice consistency on the dough, I take it out of the bowl and place it on a kitchen workbench. Sprinkle on a little extra flour and knead the dough for 1-2 minutes. The beauty of spelt flour is that you should not knead it so well. This makes baking with spelt flour even easier and faster.

Step 3

Put the dough back in the mixing bowl and cover with plastic. Let the dough rise for about 30-45 minutes.

Step 4

The dough has doubled in size when it has risen. Place the dough on a clean kitchen workbench and divide the dough into 9 approximately equal pieces.

Step 5

Roll each piece of dough into a bun and place on a baking tray with baking paper. Press them a little flatter on the baking paper. Now the breakfast breads should be allowed to rise once more before baking. Cover with plastic and place in a warm place. I have a raising function in the oven and let them stand there for 30 minutes.

Step 6

Brush the bowls with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. I sprinkle a little flour for a slightly rustic and finer look when they are done baking.
