Einkorn Flour, Item No. 5430

EINKORN: THE ORIGINAL STAFF-OF-LIFE GRAIN Einkorn is the original “staff-of-life” grain, which dates back to the beginning of time. When compared to the modern, highly modified wheat of today, einkorn’s unhybridized genetics and low gluten levels make it more compatible with the human body and easier to digest. Nutrients are also more abundant in einkorn grain than in modern wheat. Einkorn offers: • Higher protein, phosphorus, potassium, and vitamin B6 • Two times more vitamin A • Four times more beta-carotene and lutein • Five times more riboflavin Highly nutritious, unhybridized, and low in gluten, Einkorn Flour is a must-have for your pantry!

BAKING WITH EINKORN FLOUR Einkorn Flour is easy to use and can be substituted in a 1:1 ratio with allpurpose or whole-wheat flours. However, Einkorn Flour does take some getting used to. Use the following guidelines for the best results in your standard recipes, and keep in mind that the recipes in this booklet are already adjusted for these guidelines: • In standard muffin, pancake, cake, or cookie recipes, you may want to reduce liquid by as much as 20 percent. • In standard cake recipes, try adding an extra egg white to the batter to keep the final product light and fluffy. Also, beat the batter less and at a lower speed. Bread baking also requires special considerations: • Resist the temptation to add too much Einkorn Flour to bread dough. Einkorn Flour absorbs liquid more slowly than standard flour, and the dough is often wetter and stickier. • Avoid over-kneading the dough. Breads made with Einkorn Flour require less kneading than other breads. • When the dough is rising, make sure it springs back when you press on it with your finger. If the dough rises too much, it will deflate in the oven, resulting in a dense, hard crust. Keep these tips in mind while following our recipes or modifying your own!



S p on ge


1⅔ cups Einkorn Flour

Mix ing t he S ponge

⅔ cup water (about 110°F)

1. 12–15 hours before you plan to make the dough, mix together all the ingredients for the sponge in a medium bowl.

⅛ teaspoon instant yeast

Fin al D o u g h ⅔ cup water (about 110°F)

2. Cover the sponge and let it rest at room temperature for 12–15 hours.

½ teaspoon instant yeast

Mix ing and Kneadi ng the Dough

2 teaspoons salt 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1¾ cups Einkorn Flour (plus more for kneading)

1. Combine all of the dough ingredients, including the sponge, until a dough forms. 2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it until it is soft and supple. If the dough is very sticky, allow it to rest on the counter for about 15 minutes before kneading.

R is ing 1. Place the dough in a large, lightly greased bowl and cover it with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. 2. Let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled, about 1 hour. 3. When the dough has doubled, punch it down, fold it, and let it rise again, covered, until doubled again, about 1 hour.


1. Dust a clean kitchen towel heavily with flour and use it to line a large bowl. When the dough is fully raised, shape it into a ball and place it in the towel-lined bowl, which should be large enough to allow for expansion but small enough that the sides of the container support the loaf. Cover it with plastic or a towel. 2. Let the loaf proof (rest) until it is soft and full of air, about 1 hour. The dough will be ready when you poke it and the indentation remains. BAKING THE LOAF

1. Preheat the oven to 500°F for about 1 hour with a heavy-duty Dutch oven on the middle rack. 2. Gently lift the loaf by the kitchen towel and carefully turn or slide it off into the hot Dutch oven. Immediately lower the oven temperature to 450°F. 3. Bake 20–25 minutes until the loaf is browned and makes a hollow sound when thumped on the top. COOLING THE LOAF

Cool the loaf completely on a wire rack before slicing.
