Simple No Knead Spelt Bread

So simple to make! Only 4 ingredients and very little hands on time fora delicious product!
  • 400 gr (2 + ⅔ cups) LoonSong Farm Stone-ground spelt flour*
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • ¼ tsp of dried instant yeast
  • 300 ml (1 + ½ cup + 3 tbsp) of lukewarm water


  1. Mix the flour and yeast together in a big bowl
  2. Dissolve salt in the water and add that mixture to the dry ingredients and stir briefly, just until it has combined
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it to rise slowly over 12-14 hours at room temperature
  4. After the dough has risen dramatically, and is all bubbly and sticky, flour your work surface
  5. Pour/scrape it out of the bowl and with well flowered hands you shape the dough into a ball
  6. Place this in a lightly greased bowl and leave to rise for about an hour
  7. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 250C/480F WITH a cast iron pot, including the lid, inside. (he pot needs to get just as hot as the oven before you put in the dough)
  8. After the hour of extra rise, place the dough inside the hot pot and cover it with the lid
  9. Bake for 30 minutes with the lid on
  10. After 30 minutes, take the lid off and bake for another 15 minutes, if the crust is already very brown, turn the heat down by 50 C / 120 F.
  11. Take the bread out of the oven and let it cool a bit
  12. You can test if the bread is well baked by tapping on the bottom of the bread, if it sounds hollow, it’s done!
