  • Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
  • Add flour, baking powder, salt, dried fruit & nuts in a large bowl and mix using a spoon.
  • Pour in apple cider vinegar and sparkling water and stir until just combined (you don't have to knead this bread).
  • Grease a 10inch (25cm) loaf pan with one tablespoon oil and pour in the wet dough. Sprinkle with rolled oats (optional).
  • Bake for 50 minutes. Let it cool on a rack for 10 minutes, remove from the pan, and wait until cool before slicing.


Dried Fruit & Nuts: Mix and match whatever dried fruits and nuts you like or have at hand. I love a mixture of almonds, cashews, dried cranberries, mangos, and physalis. Dried figs and walnuts are delicious too. Feel free to use a premade trail mix.
Sparkling Water: Helps to activate the baking powder and makes the bread fluffier! Don't worry if you only have tap water, it works too.
Flour: This bread recipe is highly adjustable. Feel free to use whole-grain rye or wheat flour instead of spelt flour. 
Keeps fresh for 2 days if packed in a tea towel.
Or freeze half of the bread right after baking for up to 3 months. → You can slice the bread before freezing and thaw single slices in the toaster.
