Simple Einkorn Loaf

An incredibly easy way to turn Shipton Mill's Einkorn flour into a dense, sweet, nutty loaf. No kneading and only one rise required.

500g of Einkorn flour

salt (1 teaspoon)

sugar (1 teaspoon)

dry yeast (1 teaspoon)

Warm water - 300ml

Olive oil - glug


Mix 500g of Einkorn flour, and a teaspoon each of salt, sugar and dry yeast in a bowl. (It's important to mix these dry ingredients well at this stage, as you don't mix them during the kneading like with other bread recipes).

Add a glug of olive oil, and about 300ml warm water.

Bring together in the bowl, but don't knead, as the mixture will become sticky.

Transfer to a loaf tin and leave to rise until at least doubled in size.

Bake at 200 degrees C or until it sounds hollow when tapped.


I like to use a couple of teaspoons of maple syrup instead of sugar, for extra flavour.

Omitting the salt won't impact the texture of the bread, useful personally as it means I can give this to my 8 month old who's weaning! He loves a toasted stick of this soaked in banana

Baking time

You didn't state in your recipe how long to bake for, I'm guessing 50 minutes

Very easy and quick recipe

I made this today - the easiest Einkorn recipe I have ever tried. Einkorn is my favourite loaf - I really love the taste and this recipe did not disappoint.
