When you are a new mom, your life is full of milestones. You experience each day as if it were the first time that you’ve ever interacted with this person before. Your baby’s every move will make you laugh or cry and sometimes both at once. Every milestone should be celebrated because they’re moments in time that remind us how happy we are to have our little one in our lives and how much we love them for who they are: unique and perfect just like everyone else! One such milestone is when your baby starts eating solids and tries their hand at finger foods too. We all know that babies can be picky eaters so here’s a recipe for spelt bread that has been tried-and-true by moms everywhere!
prep: 5 mins, cook: 1 hr 10 mins, total: 1 hr 15 mins, Servings: 30, Yield: 2 big loaves
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
½ cup sesame seeds
8 cups spelt flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 ¼ cups milk
½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9×5 inch loaf pans.
In a large bowl, mix together the spelt flour, sesame seeds, salt, molasses, baking soda and milk until well blended. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.
Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Placing a tin of the same size over the top of the loaf while baking gives it a lovely crust.
