How to Make Einkorn Bread in the Bread Machine

Bread 2Making a 100% whole grain einkorn sandwich loaf can be intimidating, especially if you do not fully understand the important differences between einkorn and modern wheat. When baking with einkorn, adjustments must be made to the ratios of flour, water, and yeast. The kneading and proofing times must be reduced, and this creates the need for a custom cycle on your machine. For those that do not have a custom cycle on your machine, please check your manuals to choose the cycle closest to the times we recommend. Since einkorn has a very weak gluten, either too much proofing or too much yeast, can cause the dough to expand beyond the gluten’s capacity to support that rise, resulting in a concave loaf of bread. To create a custom cycle for einkorn bread made in a bread machine, you will need to set each stage of the cycle as follows (if there is no custom cycle on your machine, please check your manuals to choose the cycle closest to the times we recommend): 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 setting is not available on your bread machine). The cycles of each machine can vary, but what you are looking for is a cycle with about a 2 hour duration. We have listed a number of different options for ingredients so you may customize your loaf. Jovial now offers our favorite grain mill for online ordering with free delivery, so you can grind the freshest whole grain einkorn flour from whole einkorn wheat berries at home.

My bread machine does not have a custom cycle. It has a rapid bake cycle, which lasts about 2 hours. Would this be the best option for me? Reply 2. Carolyn says: February 1, 2015 at 10:47 pm I’ve been using the “SLOW RISE, NO-KNEAD EINKORN BREAD RECIPE”. Trying to make it by the instructions a few times and it didn’t turn out, I decided to just use my Breadman Pro machine. It turned out great and I’ve been making bread weekly. Using the same recipe, put 1 3/4 C warm water and 1 tsp salt in the bread pan then add 5 C Einkorn flour and 3/4 tsp quick yeast. Put pan into machine, set machine on Rapid White, 2# loaf and dark crust. Turn it on. Mine has a beeper that sounds toward the end of first mixing. I pause it and mix in whatever dry flour hasn’t blended. Turn it back on and let it finish. Two hours later-Yum. It is the best breakfast toast. In my toaster, after it pops up, I put it back down a little longer for darker crunchier toast but my granddaughter likes it best after the first time it pops up.

Reply ◾ jovial says: September 24, 2015 at 3:55 am Yes, there are 2 tablespoons of fat in this recipe. Reply 3. Katrina from Seattle says: March 4, 2015 at 4:21 pm Thanks for this recipe. I just bought a bread machine for the sole purpose of starting to eat healthy bread which means that I will also make it. This recipe is a good start. Reply ◦ jovial says: March 8, 2015 at 9:00 am Great, good luck. Reply 4. Bill says: April 3, 2015 at 4:46 am When following a regular recipe for whole grain einkorn bread in a bread machine with no custom settings how do I adjust the amount of water I should use? Reply 5. Cora Lawrie says: April 8, 2015 at 12:29 am My bread machine has a gluten free setting. Will this setting work for this recipe? Reply ◦ jovial says: April 9, 2015 at 1:49 pm Hi Cora- I would follow the bread machine instructions we have laid out in the post- einkorn bread is not gluten free so it may differ. We have never tried it on that setting though so we cannot say for sure. Reply 6. CJ says: April 12, 2015 at 10:51 pm You said you used a Cuisinart for the bread in the picture. I have a brand new one and it doesn’t have a custom setting. The only one on their official website it the one I have and I don’t see a custom setting. Do you have an older one with custom setting? Reply ◦ jovial says: April 17, 2015 at 12:34 pm Hello CJ, You are correct, we had an older model CBK-250, which had a custom cycle. It looks like the new CBK-200 does not have that option anymore. We did check the Cuisinart manual and found that the Whole Wheat (Light) cycle is very close to the custom cycle we recommend. Please try that and let us know how your bread turns out. Reply 7. Mike says: April 13, 2015 at 12:55 am I saw your recipe for using a Cuisinart bread machine to make whole wheat bread, so I bought one. I don’t know how to customize the cycle settings, can you let me know how you did this? I have the CBK- 200 model. Thanks Reply ◦ jovial says: April 17, 2015 at 12:32 pm Mike, We have a Cuisinart CBK-250, which does has cycle 12 as a home made course. I checked your manual and unfortunately, your model does not have this option. I don’t think they make our model anymore. Some Zojirushi and Breville machines have a custom cycle. However, we found that the cycle called Whole Wheat (Light) Crust is very close to the custom cycle we recommend. Please try that and let us know how your bread turns out. Reply 8. Mari says: May 31, 2015 at 4:41 pm My custom settings allow for up to 3 rise cycles, but only 1 time can be set for the knead. I have to choose 5 min for each or 10 min for each. Should I set it to 10 min (as better for the first knead) or for 5 min (as better for the 2nd knead)? Reply ◦ jovial says: June 3, 2015 at 5:04 pm We recommend you use the 5 minute setting. Please keep in touch and let us know how you make out! Reply 9. Laura says: July 8, 2015 at 1:11 pm How many cups of flour does a box of berries equal?? I buy my Eincorn already ground into flour. How many cups of flour is in this recipe? Reply ◦ jovial says: July 9, 2015 at 12:07 pm Hi Laura- The recipe isn’t a 1:1 ratio for this so it doesn’t convert exactly and do not have the exact amount of flour that should be used. We recommend trying this recipe: https://jovialfoods.com/blog/2013/03/bread-machine/ which is made with our einkorn flour! Also, we have a whole grain flour coming out soon that you will be able to use in place of the wheat berries! Reply ◦ jovial says: July 9, 2015 at 12:10 pm One cup of whole wheat berries weighs 200 grams roughly, so you should measure 2 1/4 cups of wheat berries. Reply 10. Brianna says: July 20, 2015 at 1:17 pm Hi, the shortest setting on my breadman machine is the deluxe rapid all the other ones are to slow and make my einkorn bread ending up caved in a lot and so I’m trying it right now with the deluxe rapid which for the first knead its 16 min and then rise is 16 min and then the bake is 28 mins do you think this might work? Reply ◦ jovial says: July 23, 2015 at 1:38 pm Hi Brianna- If it had one rise at 16 minutes, I don’t think that will work. What is the model? We can take a look at your options and get back to you. Reply 11. mp says: August 13, 2015 at 10:17 am I would rather not use a bread maker. Do you have a recipe for hand made bread? Reply ◦ jovial says: August 13, 2015 at 10:25 am Hello! We do have my recipes that do not require bread makers. Here are a few, if you search through our blog you will be able to find a few more as well: https://jovialfoods.com/blog/2015/03/new-einkorn-sandwich-bread-recipe/\ https://jovialfoods.com/blog/2013/01/whole-grain-sourdough/ https://jovialfoods.com/blog/2012/12/slow-rise-bread/ Reply 12. Kristen says: September 24, 2015 at 9:40 pm Hi. I just came across this and I really want to make this happen in the machine that I have but I am NOT good at deciding if this will work. Would you be able to tell me if the Panasonic SD-YD250 has a setting that is comparable so that I can attempt this bread? I hate wasting ingredients- huge guilt factor for me :( Thanks for any and all help!!! Reply ◦ jovial says: September 30, 2015 at 12:10 pm Hi Kristen- We have never used the Panasonic so we are not sure what the settings are for this machine. Sorry! Reply

Ingredients

  • 3/4

    cup (180 g) liquid, such as buttermilk, milk, kefir or water (we prefer water over non-dairy beverages in bread baking, if you are intolerant to dairy)

  • 1/2

    cup (118 g) warm water at 100°F

  • 2

    tablespoons of melted and cooled or liquid fats, such as butter, coconut oil, leaf lard, extra virgin olive oil, or sunflower oil

  • 1 to 2

    tablespoons sweetener, such as sugar, brown sugar, honey or maple syrup

  • 1 1/4

    teaspoons sea salt

  • 1

    box (1lb/454g) jovial einkorn wheat berries, ground to flour

  • 1 1/4

    teaspoons dry active yeast

Directions

1.Add the liquids, fats, sweetener, 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 and start the custom cycle for einkorn bread as indicated above. Because einkorn is very sticky, the dough may be more likely to stick to the sides of the pan during kneading, resulting in a lopsided bread. If you are home, you can scrape down the sides as needed with a spatula before baking. 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 1-2 hours before slicing. Slicing warm einkorn bread is not recommended.
