Quick Einkorn Bread

Makes 1 loaf

This easy recipe makes a rustic loaf with a dense crumb and intense flavour in a surprisingly short time. Avoid too much kneading of the dough, both for speed and because it can easily become sticky.

  1. Oil a 1kg/2lb bread tin and pre-heat the oven.
  2. Put the flour, yeast, sugar and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.
  3. Stir in the water, mixing to a smooth dough.
  4. Using your hands, gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  5. Shape the dough and put it into the prepared tin.
  6. Cover loosely with oiled cling film and leave it in a warm place to rise for 40-45 minutes.
  7. Remove the cling film and bake for 40–45 minutes. You will know it’s done when the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.
  8. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

This has been the best as far as ease, taste and texture, and crumb of all the einkorn bread recipes I have tried. I followed it exactly at first. Now I add a bit more salt and use honey instead of whate sugar.

Second time around added sesame seeds and replaced sugar with Stevia - still five stars

This is my first recipe followed from the back/side of a flour pack - it makes an excellent loaf

The recipe works really well and the bread is very tasty and excellent toasted. I've used a breadmaker dough recipe to mix the ingredients but I'm sure this dough rises too quickly for machine baking.

I LOVE this flour! It makes delicious pumpkin bread, pizza crust, etc. I am currently working on developing a bread machine recipe for it - trial and error so far! If anyone else has successfully created a bread machine recipe please contact me at www.thenettlepatch.com
