I was very excited when I made this bread! I have been experimenting with adding so much water to the bread dough, that I could not knead the dough anymore in the usual way. Instead I would squeeze the dough with my hands for a few minutes, without taking it out of the bowl.
Then I would place this sticky dough in a (very well oiled) bread baking pan and let the dough rise only once!
Within an hour the dough is ready to be baked in the usual way. You can imagine my excitement! Later I found that I wasn't being strange and that this bread recipe already exists, so I had the courage to post it! Imagine, this is easier than baking a cake! And the bread is something special. It is soft, moist and very light. The crust is crunchy and delicious.
I have tryed baking the bread with different kinds of flour, and the best was with spelt flour. I also add syrup and seeds for extra nutrients and taste.
600 g (5 cups) spelt flour 500 ml (2 1/2 cups) warm water 1 1/2 tsp dryed yeast 2 tbl syrup 2 tsp salt
preheat the oven to 200 C
Place the yeast and syrup in the warm water and set aside for a few minutes. Then add this to the flour and mix. Gradually add the water so that the dough becomes moist and sticky. Mix well with a wooden spoon or using your hands, squeeze the dough for a few minutes. Add a handful of seeds. Then place the dough in an well oiled or lined bread baking tin. Cover with plastic film and a tea towel. Let the dough rise. Bake the bread for about 30 minutes. Check the temperature of the bread to see if it is ready.
