Here is a recipe for bread using Spelt flour taken from a packet of this
flour sold by Doves Farm. I have not tried it yet. On the packet it says:

3. Dissolve the salt in the remaining warm water and add to the flour. Also
add the oil.

one piece onto the baking tray and dust with flour.

risen to about twice its size.
7. Cook in an oven pre-heated to 180C, 370F for 35 minutes. A fully cooked
