Spelt Honey Bread

From Champaign, OH

<p>My mom gave me a cookbook for Christmas that had this recipe in it, but it called for whole wheat flour. I just substituted spelt because it&#8217;s what we have, and it was a very simple, no fuss bread recipe. Great for breakfast or snacking, even for dessert with jam, fruit butter, or honey.</p>
