My mission to keep away from white flour continues with yet another effort to bake my own sandwich bread. From this, it's likely you'll begin to see sandwiches here that are shaped a little differently than the norm. Not to worry, they'll be just as wonderful, and you can use your choice of bread. If you're really daring, you can try these recipes along with me and let me know what you think. The goal is always SIMPLE, DELICIOUS, NO SUGAR (or very, very little), and NO WHITE FLOUR! Try this one, it's almost too simple and makes two loaves:Ingredients
8 cups Spelt flour
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbls molasses
2 tsp baking soda
4 1/4 cups milk (2%)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease (PAM) two 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a large bowl, mix together 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.

A word about White Flour:
It's what's left after stripping virtually all the nutrients and fiber out of a whole grain of wheat. So what you're left with is a dead, lifeless powder that no longer goes rancid and can be used as a perfect binding agent to hold together sugar, sodium, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, additives, and other chemicals. White flour is basically "white gold" for food manufacturers.

Products made with white flour are nutritionally useless, yet the American Dietetic Association recommends that we eat 8-11 servings of them everyday. So people eat things like pasta, bagels and pretzels and believe they are eating healthy because these foods are "fat-free." But what food manufacturers have failed to mention is that white flour products have zero nutritional value and can lead to poor health, AND I LOVE THEM ALL!!!!!!


  1. It looks fantastic! How come you weren't baking bread when I was there?

  2. There is an award awaiting you!

    Also - I made the Grammy Sammie...AWESOME! Thanks!


  3. Go girl! You're doing a great job! :-)

  4. My beloved has been thinking seriously about baking he own grain bread. We have looked at several bread makers...but he says there is more research to do...
    Query, do you prefer baking in the oven?

  5. www.mysterymeatloaf.blogspot.com

    sorry about that :)

  6. I'm really impressed with your blog.

    Maybe you could give me some pointers with my pastrami blog...the content is great, but the layout not so much.

  7. Oh no... how can you avoid bread? Don't you live for bread??? I love the look of this yummy bread though and I do mostly low-carb flax flat breads or whole wheat if I can find the right kind. This looks awesome. I'll have to look for spelt flour.

  8. This is one thing I really want to do...bake my own bread. This sounds great. Copying it right now to try!

  9. Is there anything better than homemade bread? It smells as good as it tastes and I can eat half a loaf and still feel totally wholesome.

    And white flour, high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils are all made my Satan. Or Walmart. Whichever.
