Wholemeal Spelt Cinnamon Toast Bread (bread machine)

picture of wholemeal bread


This wholemeal spelt cinnamon toast bread is one of my favourite breakfasts. Nobody else in my house likes it, so when I whip up a loaf in my bread machine, I take a couple of slices and freeze the rest. I really like toast but don’t like store bought bread, so this gives me a quick, easy breakfast that is better for me.

The bread is dense and fairly heavy. This is due to the wholemeal spelt flour used in the recipe. If you prefer a lighter crumb, use white spelt flour if you prefer. I like the denseness of this spelt cinnamon toast bread as it holds up well as toast; I’ve noticed that white spelt bread is a little more fragile when toasted.

The bread is heavy on the cinnamon (if using too much cinnamon is ever a possibility) and instead of the usual raisins, I opted for sultanas. I think they do a better job of moistening up the bread a little but you can use raisins if you prefer.

The instructions above are for a bread machine. Results can't be guaranteed if you make it by hand.
  1. You can use white spelt or substitute the spelt for regular flour.
  2.  I use grams in my recipes as weighing ingredients is the most accurate method. However, if cups are your thing, you can convert my measurements at Cook it Simply.
