I cannot wait to try this bread!!!!
I ordered einkorn flour to test my tolerance to it. I've also begun fermenting a new sourdough starter and will use this einkorn flour to make sourdough bread! But, for now, I made this yeast bread using a recipe on the bag of my Jovial brand flour.
Seriously, how delicious does this bread look??
At about $4 per pound, this flour seems a bit spendy but it is actually reasonable when you think about how much a regular whole wheat loaf costs at the grocery store. It makes it A LOT easier for me to justify anyway. I used half of my bag on this one loaf, so dollar for dollar compared to grocery store bread, this seems close to equal.
Here is the recipe:
Two-Hour Sandwich Bread (Jovial Brand Flour)
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 1/2 teaspoon dry active yeast
2 tablespoons melted butter or oil
1 tablespoon sugar or honey
3 3/4 cups einkorn flour
1 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
In a large bowl, combine water, yeast, oil or butter, and sugar or honey. Stir until creamy. Add the flour on top of the yeast mixture. Sprinkle the salt on top. Mix with a spatula until flour is absorbed and you have a wet, sticky dough. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise for 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit. Butter an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. The dough will feel sticky and wet but DO NOT add additional flour. Shape into a loaf. Place loaf in the pan, cover with poled plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing.
*this flour does not require kneading.
*additional flour will make your loaf too dry
Enjoy! Let me know if you try this.
