Einkorn Bread Machine Sandwich Loaf
If you bake with a bread machine and are looking for a soft loaf of einkorn bread for sandwiches, we have a new recipe for you. If your machine does not have a custom cycle, you should use the shortest cycle that you have or please check your manuals to choose the cycle closest to the times we recommend. The loaf was not fragile, so it can be easily sliced for sandwiches or toast without breaking apart, the crust was soft and inside the crumb was perfect.
- ¾ cup (195g) of milk, warmed
- ½ cup (188g) of water, warmed
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1¼ teaspoons sea salt
- 4 cups (480g) jovial all-purpose einkorn flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
To bake einkorn bread in a bread machine, you need to use a short cycle so the dough does not rise too much. If the dough is over-proofed, einkorn’s weak gluten will not be able to support the air bubbles during baking and the loaf can collapse in the middle.
- Add the liquids, fats, sugar, and salt to the loaf pan.
- Place the flour on top of the liquids.
- Make a shallow well in the center of the flour and add the yeast.
- Set a custom cycle as follows: Preheat off, Knead 10 minutes, Rise 1: 45 minutes, Knead 2: 5 minutes, Rise 2: 30, Rise 3: Off, Bake: 50 minutes. Crust: medium or dark. (Omit second knead if the setting is not available on your machine).
- Once the cycle is complete, remove the pan from the machine and allow the loaf to cool for 5 minutes.
- Turn out the bread on a cooling rack and allow to cool for 1 to 2 hours before slicing. Slicing warm einkorn bread is not recommended.
