Spelt & Yoghurt Bread

Professional looking bread is my mission! And today’s Spelt and Yoghurt Bread is definitely, in my view, an improvement on previous efforts.

Recipe:

750g flour, composed of 500g spelt, 150g strong white, and 100g very strong brown
c.16fl ozs liquid, composed of c.40% yoghurt, 60% water
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
17g dry yeast, activated with 5fl ozs of the water and an additional tsp of sugar

I mixed and folded for about half a minute, then left it for c.30 minutes, when I stretched and folded til it felt really good – perhaps half a minute again. I then left the dough to rise while a went to Pilates and did the shopping. I stretched and folded again and left the dough to rise in a floured cloth placed inside a colander. When it had about doubled I turned it out on to a flat tin and cut the top. I baked at 190C for 10 minutes and then reduced to 170C for 35 minutes. It has a dense texture, slightly moist, and smells and tastes fabulous with the fresh grapefruit marmalade!
