Whole-Grain Spelt Bread without a Bread Machine
Whisk 2 cups of the flour, sugar, yeast (regular active dry yeast), and salt to combine. Add the milk beverage and oil and stir to combine. Add the flaxseed or grain mix, and then flour, 1/2 cup at a time, kneading as it become thick. Knead it for 7 to 10 minutes. Cover and let rise in a warm draft free place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down and let rest 5 minutes. Shape and place in a greased and floured large loaf pan or two smaller loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled again, about 1 hour. Bake at 350ºF until golden and the loaf sounds hollow when thumped on the bottom. This is usually around 30 minutes or so.
