Easy Einkorn Soda Bread

If you enjoy baking but want to avoid the inflammation and other side effects caused by modern wheat flour, try baking with the original wheat flour – Einkorn wheat! Here’s an easy recipe to get you started.

Yield: one – 9×5 inch loaf that results in a soft, slightly sweet and hearty bread.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients
* 3 cups Einkorn* flour
* 1/3 cup white sugar (optional if sweet bread is desired)
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 Tablespoon (yes!) baking powder
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 3 Tablespoons finely ground flax seed
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1.5 cups buttermilk (To make your own, place 1.5 Tablespoons vinegar in a measuring cup, add milk to total 1.5 cups. You can use almond, coconut or other alternative milks.)
* 1/4 cup butter, melted

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
2. Melt butter and set aside.
3. Combine and blend flour, sugar (if desired), baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flax seed.

You can use a whisk or spoon as usual. But Ayurvedic cooking recommends cleaning your hands and using them to blend and mix. If you intentionally think loving thoughts, that love is added in as an additional ingredient. Our family swears you can taste the difference. Try it! (Kids love to do this – just be sure they wash their hands first!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened.
5. Stir in melted butter.

6. Pour into prepared pan and let sit for 10 minutes. (This allows the moisture to combine better with the flour.)

Batter is thick; I spoon it into the pan. It will double in height as it bakes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean.
8. Cool on a wire rack and then wrap to keep fresh.

*Einkorn has less gluten so flax meal helps it hold together. If you substitute Gluten-Free flour, add 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (unless your GF flour already includes it), and increase buttermilk to 2 cups. If substituting regular wheat flour, omit flax meal and increase buttermilk to 2 cups. Baking time and results may vary.

    • Hi Sue! My cup measures 8 ounces of liquid. It’s a standard US measuring cup size. By the way, I’m continuing to experiment with Einkorn bread recipes made with yeast. I’ll post that, too, once I’m satisfied it works consistently. Have fun!
