Spelt flour

Hello John,
     I haven't got a machine so I can't answer your question properly but 
I have 
made this particular loaf. You may be best just using your machine for 
mixing as 
the Roman Army bread is a very sloppy recipe and is very quick ( no real 
rising). The dough makes for two smallish flat loafs which are 
incidentally delicious.
So that it doesn't totally collapse on you, you might want to hold back a 
third of the water and only add if necessary. When you've baked it a few 
times you can always add more if you want.
          Good luck,
