Maple loaf bread

Serving fresh bread to my family with a meal is a luxury I love to do when I have time and this week it happened twice already. I made maple loaf and it taste great slightly warm with some butter and maybe honey. This recipe will make 1 large loaf or two small ones. I like making small loafs so that the family can eat one and I can freeze other one.

1 ½-2 ½ cups white spelt flour (or use regular All-purpose flour)
2 tbsp. psyllium husk
2 tsps. active dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 cup warm oat milk
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. maple syrup
Combine 1 ½ cups of the flour, psyllium husk, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Melt butter in a saucepan and add milk and maple syrup and make it warm, not hot. Add to flour mix little at the time and add more flour if needed. You want to work the dough really well for 5 minutes if not using a kitchen aid. The end result should be elastic dough that is not too sticky and easily lets go of the bowl. Cover bowl with a towel and set aside to rise for 1 ½ hours. Place dough on a surface sprinkled with a little flour and knead dough for 2-3 minutes. Shape dough into one large loaf or two small ones and place in non-stick loaf pans. Cover with a towel and set aside to rise for another 30 minutes. Preheat oven to F350. Bake for 25-30 minutes for small loafs or 30-40 minutes for large loaf. It should be crusty and golden brown when down. Leave uncovered to cool down before serving.
