What’s better than homemade bread? What about homemade bread that doesn’t need to be kneaded? This country bread works well for all the farmers — or even office workers — who don’t have the time, energy or a stand mixer to be doing all kinds of fancy kneaded breads. This loaf will turn out just as tasty and impressive with a nice thick crust, just right for sopping up tasty stews or making rustic sandwiches.
If you’re not a fan of spelt flour, you could make a substitution, but this flavor really helps bring the country to this country bread. If you want a little more texture, add some chopped-up dried fruits and nuts to the dough.
