Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Mix Orange (1) , White Spelt Flour (3 1/2 cups) , Sea Salt (1/2 tsp) , Active Dry Yeast (1 tsp) , Vanilla Powder (1/2 tsp) , Dried Currants (3/4 cup) , Ground Cinnamon (2 Tbsp) , Ground Allspice (2 Tbsp) , Whole Cloves (1/2 tsp) and Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp) in a bowl.
Step 2
Add Water (1 1/3 cups) and stir to form a sticky dough. Once combined, cover with a clean, damp tea towel, and set aside in a warm corner overnight, at least 12 to 24 hours.
Step 3
Once dough is ready, place on a floured surface, and pull dough together with your hands. For a loaf version, place rounded dough into a clean, floured tea towel, and let sit 1 to 2 hours more.
Step 4
If you're making buns, cut dough into 8 even pieces, and roll into balls. Place on a paper-lined tray, cover with a clean tea towel, and set aside to rise for 1-2 hours. While dough is rising, preheat oven to 480 degrees F (250 degrees C).
Step 5
Place Dutch oven inside oven with lid on for 30 minutes. Mix the Spelt Flour (1/2 cup) and Water (1/4 cup) to form a sticky paste. Pipe paste over the buns in a cross shape. Remove Dutch oven from oven, flour bottom, and place dough inside.
Step 6
Replace lid on Dutch oven, and return to hot oven. Bake 30 minutes covered, then 15 minutes uncovered. Remove from oven, and brush with Honey (3 Tbsp) while they're still hot. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Step 7
Serve with some butter and tea. Enjoy!
