When it comes to baking, it's a case of the simpler the better for me, as I'm no pastry chef – and this recipe uses my favourite, super-easy, wet-ingredients-into-dry method.
There are some swaps you could try here – perhaps using your favourite nuts, or a mixture of plain and spelt flour instead of all spelt. I haven't tested this recipe with gluten-free flour, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work well.
This bread is best eaten as close to the day of baking as possible – if not fresh out the oven. But it's also amazing toasted and topped with a big dollop of yogurt or coconut whip, extra pecans, and a drizzle of maple syrup.
