White Spelt Bread

So white spelt bread that looks as good as white wheat bread? How about it? I think it does and there is not a drop of wheat in this recipe and it was easy to make. It rose really quickly. It looks good and most importantly, it tastes good!

8 cups of white spelt flour
3 T sugar

2 T quick rising yeast
1 T salt
2 T oil
2 1/2 cups of very warm water

- measure 4 cups of flour, the sugar, salt and yeast into bowl
- add very warm water and oil
- mix with beaters until smooth
- add rest of flour one cup at a time
- turn onto counter and knead until dough is smooth (it will be tackier than regular bread).
- place in greased bowl
- grease dough and place in warm spot to rise
- when double in size, shape into loaves and leave to rise again
- when fully risen (about 1.5 inches above loaf pan) bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes
- turn out of pans immediately after removing from oven.
