Best bread in the world

I got the recipe for this bread from a friend and she found it on Internet. It's a recipe from the book "Elsker deig" (love dough), written by Marit Røttingsnes Westlie.

It's a moist bread with a fantastic crust and is one of the best breads you can make at home.
It contains just a little yeast and a lot of water. You don't need to knead it, just wait and see. Because we use spelt flour, it needs a lot of water.

I made it in a clay pot (Römertopf) but it's also possible to make it in an oven pan with lock.


600 g wheat flour
250 g spelt flour
7 dl water
4 ts salt
1 ts yeast (dry)
Blend quick together the flour, salt, yeast and add the handwarm (37degr. C) water. Just use a spatula to mix it.

Cover it with plastic or a lock and let it rest in room
temperature for at least 12 hours but best 24 hours 

After 24 hours it looks like this (it bubbles and looks alive):

Now if using a römertopf, soak it in water for 10 minutes, take some oil on the sides so the bread don't stick and put it in the oven. Oven on 240 degrees C. (464 F). In the meanwhile, put a lot of flour on the bench put the dough on it and flip the sides. When the oven is warm, pour the dough in the römertopf.

And there it goes in the oven for 30 minutes, covered with lock. After 30 minutes, remove the lock

Now give it 10 to 15 min extra untill crust is golden:

Now take it out of the form and cool it down on a rist.

Tastes magnificent

  1. Jeg stakk innom for å se på bildene, men nå tror jeg søren meg at jeg må begynne å lete i bakeskapet - hvis noe sånt fins;)
    Men bildene var fine de også.

  2. Bra du likte oppskriften. Jeg ha bakt det flere ganger.
