I've long searched for a simple bread recipe that doesn't require kneading or fussy instructions, and I'm happy to tell you I've found it.
This honey, oat and wholemeal spelt flour bread is sweet and mellow tasting, with a soft, springy texture. I love how quickly it comes together, and the best part is that it only requires an hour of rising time. There's no need to feel wedded to the specific ingredients as it's a rather forgiving recipe - feel free to experiments with alternative flours, such as rye, buckwheat or regular flour.
