Super-fast, No-knead Spelt and Rye Loaf Recipe by Jordan Bourke

This Rye loaf recipe is exactly what it says, no knead and fast!

This loaf is for the days when you are short on time, or have realised too late that only one slice of your beloved sourdough remains!

It comes together in a flash and requires no kneading or proving time – you just fire it into the oven and an hour later you have a beautiful loaf, somewhere between an Irish soda breadand a country loaf. Feel free to play around with the flours a little, and any number of herbs, seeds, dried fruits and nuts can be added to it.

Makes 1 loaf


200g wholegrain spelt flour
200g white spelt flour, or more wholegrain if you prefer
100g rye flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp sea salt
80g pumpkin seeds
40g sunflower seeds
80g raisins (optional)
1 tbsp blackstrap molasses or maple syrup
520ml tepid water
23cm x 13cm loaf tin


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas mark 6, and lightly grease the loaf tin and line it with baking parchment.
2. Thoroughly mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add the molasses and water and mix again until just combined.
3. Pour into the loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes, then carefully remove the loaf from its tin and continue to bake on its side for a further 10 minutes.
4. Remove the loaf from the oven and leave to cool completely before cutting.
