Last year I gingerly started baking my own bread thinking that there must be a type of magic and good luck to getting the right rise and bake. I tried sourdough and a simple crock pot recipe and all seemed well, so this year I am attempting a lot more bread as I really have found it quite simple.

This was my first time using wholemeal spelt flour and I really enjoyed baking with it. This is a Nigel Slater recipe which you can find here. It uses a mix of spelt and white flour. I think I would like to try it again using only spelt flour to see what difference this makes.

The wholemeal spelt flour gives a nice grainy texture but the bread feels light and is very tasty to eat. Spelt flour also proves and rises quicker so is better if you want to bake a faster bread.

It's not quite a dish but as I have made these from a Nigel Slater recipe I'm adding this to Janice from Farmers Girl Kitchen's Dish of the Month challenge.

I am also adding this to Munchies and Munchkins Fifty Breads Challenge. I hope to join her on her bread making journey.

I've never made bread with spelt, my friend has though and also finds it easy to work with. Your rolls look great, thanks for joining us for #DishoftheMonth

Your rolls look great and I imagine they would be delicious slathered in butter! Even though I've been baking my own bread for about 2 and half years I still haven't progressed beyond using white or wholemeal flour. I really need to try other grains. I am attempting sourdough at the moment though.
