Hi Warren, I hope you are well. Your daughters look beautiful! I have been enjoying your bread cookbook but wanted to ask you a question about spelt. I used your recipe but cut out the white flour as I was trying to make it with just spelt. However, it wasn’t done on the inside when it should have been, and I noticed that the spelt just keeps taking in more and more water when kneading it. Do you have any suggestions for making just spelt bread with no other flour or do you always suggest using white or wheat with it? Thanks!

Greetings to ol’ England. We are in sunny Canada and the girls are asleep – almost…
Always nice to talk about bread!
Baking with all spelt is nice and flavourful. As there is so little gluten to make the dough stiff, I tend to work it quite wet in the mixing bowl and kneed it as best I can in the bowl. it does not need as much kneading. then I put it in loaf tins and bake it as usual. If it is raw in the inside, then you could try baking it longe at a slightly cooler termperature.
