At last after some real disasters I have found a bread recipe that works. But let me explain I have been making wheat bread for ages very successfully but because of Florence's gluten intolerance I have been trying to find alternative flour to use. I know that spelt is not gluten free but because it hasn't been meddled with so much it is less likely to cause problem's.
Well I have had some very disappointing results recently which have reminded me of that scene in "about a boy" ( great movie) when a duck is killed by a very solid loaf of bread. That is exactly how mine turned out until I found a great new recipe online. This loaf is perfect. It has a great taste and isn't too heavy.
