Spelt Bread

Spelt Bread

I’ve been diagnosed with a wheat allergy since about 2 years ago. Which is why I’ve often had to pay for expensive + loaves of wheat free bread. So, as of late I’ve been trying to make my own wheat free bread in my Hamilton Beach bread machine. I’ve been using spelt flour as it tastes and acts quite like wheat flour. 

 

I’ve tried several times to make a loaf with only spelt flour, without any success. The loaves taste fine but they’re often dense, with little rise. I have both white and whole spelt flour.The most recent recipe I tried was: 1.5 c white spelt, 1.5c  whole spelt, 1 tbsp olive oil, and 1 package active dry yeast. I give it 4 minutes to knead and wait over night for it to rise. At the most it rises 2 inches.

Does anyone know of any successful 100% spelt recipes? I know they exist,as I’ve bought commercial spelt bread on numerous occasions.
