Derwyn's Einkorn Bread Machine Loaf

Derwyn's Einkorn Bread Machine Loaf




  • ¾ cup (195g) of milk or Kefir, warmed  (you can also add a beaten egg)
  • ½ cup (118g) of water, warmed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoons sea salt
  • 3 cups (480g) Daybreak Organic Einkorn flour
  • 1 cup Daybreak organic unbleached stoneground hard red flour  (makes the bread a little lighter)
  • 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.

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.


Alternate option

  1. We like to use a bread pan so we set our bread machine to the pizza or other dough only setting.
  2. When cycle completes, dump the dough on lightly floured bread board and mold into shape to fit bread pan.
  3. Let rise for 30 – 40 minutes in a warm place. (we use a preheated oven, and take it out before baking)
  4. Set oven to 350 and bake for 40 minutes

  • Hey Patty and Vickey! Sorry we missed your questions! We don’t get notified when comments are left. How did you make out?

  • So I researched and answered my own question for those who also wish to know. In the process, I also found an error in this recipe.

    First the error, 3 cups of flour is 360 grams not 480 grams. The entire recipe including the 1 cup (120 grams) of all-purpose flour should be 480 grams.

    Next, 4 cups of flour makes a 2-pound loaf.

    Going to try this recipe this weekend. Have very high hopes.

  • Hi, I’m waiting for the answer to the “How large of a loaf does this make?” question as well. My machine asks for 1-3 pound loves, what size should I choose for this recipe? Thanks!

  • How large of a loaf does this make? I am new to bread machine baking and my bread machine has three loaf sizes to choose from.
