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. We baked this loaf in a Cuisinart, using the basic white bread cycle. 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.



  • 4 cups (480g) jovial einkorn flour
  • 2 tbsp. (32g) sugar
  • 1¼ tsp. (9g) sea salt
  • 2 tsp. (8g) dry active yeast
  • ¾ cup (195g) of milk, warmed
  • ¼ cup (58g) of water, warmed
  • 3 tbsp. (45g) butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp. (15g) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. (4g) lemon juice


We baked this loaf in a Cusinart bread machine and  used the basic white bread cycle with a dark crust, but the sides were a bit brown so feel medium crust is the preferred setting, but it will depend on your machine. Some of our readers used the Zojirushi and the loaf baked perfectly as well. If you find your loaf turns out lopsided, you might try to load the flour first, followed by the yeast, sugar and salt with the fats and liquids on top. For the liquids, melt the butter on low heat, then add the milk and butter until lukewarm. Combine with olive oil and lemon juice.

    My bread machine asks for a loaf size in addition to the setting for type of bread. My options are 1 pound, 1.5 pound, or 2 pound loaf. Could you let me know about how large this loaf ends up being? Thank you! :-)

    My breadmaker explicitly says never to use dry active yeast, opting instead for the rapidrise instant variety. Will it make a difference for this recipe?

      Hi Chris- I have never used rapid rise before and fast acting yeast does not work well with einkorn, I would stick to dry active yeast. Thanks and enjoy!
