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. Rub some oil around the inside of a 1kg/2lb bread tin.
  2. Put the flour, yeast, sugar and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.
  3. Add the water and stir everything into a slightly sticky, doughy mass. Avoid kneading or adding flour.
  4. Transfer the sticky dough to the prepared tin and smooth the top.
  5. Invert a mixing bowl over the tin and leave it in a warm place to rise for 55-60 minutes.
  6. Pre-heat the oven 20 minutes before you are going to bake.
  7. Remove the bowl and bake for 40–45 minutes.
  8. Turn the bread out of the tin, tap the base and if it sounds hollow the bread is cooked.
  9. 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
