It does not stand a change and normally disappears within the first day.

I can’t stand prepackaged sliced bread, life is too short to eat bad food. Rather you are a bread lover or not this spelt bread is guaranteed to go down fast. That’s why I avoid baking bread at home on regular basis, because when I cut the first slice and bite into a delicious crunchy crust and fluffy inside I can’t stop. It’s the same with my Italian focaccia. Except with focaccia it’s even worse, because there are endless topping you can make it with and I always have so many ideas for new ones I can’t even follow then through. The problems foodies need to face :).

Often there is just not enough time to bring all of my recipe ideas to life. Every day I fill new pages of my notebook with recipe ideas and always have hard time choosing which ones to make first.

Back to spelt bread. Since it does not contain any yeast but still needs a rising agent I use cream of tartar instead. It creates fluffy well risen bread without waiting for it to rise, a win win situation. I also like to mix in different seeds like sunflower or pumpkin seeds but that’s optional. After all this bread talk you should already be weighing your spelt flour and preheating your oven to bake one of these delicious loafs.

Spelt bread without yeast

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Course breads, Breakfast
Servings 1 loaf


  • 380 g spelt flour
  • 1 table spoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tea spoon of salt
  • 340 ml almond milk diary or other plant milk
  • 1 table spoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower or pumpkin seeds optional


  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  • Mix together flour, cream of tartar, seeds and salt to distribute evenly. Add milk and mix for a few minutes to get an even mixture. It should be wet and sticky, do not add more flour.
  • Transfer the dough into a loaf tin or place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You won’t be able to shape it too much because of its wet consistency. Sprinkle over some seeds.
  • Bake for about 50 minutes (depending on your oven). Bread is baked when tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out clean, has crispy crust and when you tap it on the back, it should sound hallow.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. If you want a softer crust wrap the loaf in a kitchen towel.
