For kids, this easy spelt bread recipe is fun to prepare and a great opportunity to bake bread for the whole family.
Our family has experimented quite a bit with bread making. We used to perceive buying a French baguette as a treat. That changed when we managed to bake a bread that was light, fluffy, and warm irresistible.
Toying with the basic recipe, we soon developed variations that enhanced the outcome even more.
It’s fabulous that we can control, how fluffy the result becomes as well as how soft or crunchy the crust turns out. It is easy to adjust the taste by adding your favorite spices like cardamom, cumin, or others. These additions make an ordinary bread taste special.
In comparison to the kefir bread, we reduced the kefir to one cup for this recipe, which eliminated the slight cheesy tasting component. Adding a teaspoon of yeast granules ensured the fermentation process and returning a consistent outcome.
The rest is pretty much up to the preference of the baker. Those following a low sodium diet can easily adjust the recipe, so can those who reduce sugar or go sugar-free. We experimented with adding sugar or leaving it away and adding salt or accidentally forgetting it. There was no noticeable impact on taste or outcome.
Prepare the dough itself either in the morning to bake in the evening,
or in the evening to enjoy this easy bread recipe freshly baked in the
morning. Alternatively, baking bread once a week, and keeping the
surplus loaves of bread frozen in the freezer can become a solution.
The long rising and fermentation time gives the light and fluffy results that you want.

Tip: Rushing when baking bread results in a dense outcome.
Setting aside time for the fermentation is essential. There are no shortcuts in bread baking. If the dough did not rise to at least double its size, the result is a lot denser.
Let the oven-fresh bread cool for twenty minutes. It improves the cut ability. You might want to cut the slices a bit thicker because it is so fresh.
Enjoy its delicious taste!
