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.  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.

  1. Add the liquids, fats, sugar, and salt to the loaf pan.
  2. Place the flour on top of the liquids.
  3. Make a shallow well in the center of the flour and add the yeast.
  4. 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).
  5. Once the cycle is complete, remove the pan from the machine and allow the loaf to cool for 5 minutes.
  6. 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.

    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!

      Yes, you can grind our wheat berries in a Vitamin. Try one cup at a time. The flour will not come out as fine as with a grain mill, but for bread, it will work fine.

  3. My Zojirushi Bread Machine does not have two Knead settings. Should I add the second knead time to the first or use add half the second to the first or skip the second all together?

      Hi Michael- You can omit the second knead if the setting is not available on your machine! Thank you for letting us know so we could clarify!
