With only 5 ingredients in this recipe, there is little room for error. This is a great beginner bread recipe! This recipe originally came from an issue of 'Today's Parent.' It has become a well-loved recipe in our home. Spelt flour is considered an ancient grain and is a great source of protein, fibre, iron and zinc. For some people who have difficulty digesting wheat, spelt may be a good option to try. Spelt does contain gluten though and is not recommended for those people who must avoid gluten containing foods.
Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large bowl, whisk together 4 ¼ c of the flour with baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, mix yogurt and honey, and then combine with dry ingredients. Stir until the dough comes together; it will be very soft and floppy. Spread the remaining ¼ c flour on your work surface and, with floured hands, roll the dough into a rough ball. Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and gently flatten with your palm to create a disc measuring about 6 inches in diameter. With a sharp knife, slash an X across the surface and sprinkle with any remaining flour. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown on top and a tester you’ve inserted comes out clean. Let cool on a rack. Alternatively, divide the dough into 2 smaller disks and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Enjoy!
