Einkorn Sweet Bread
What is Einkorn bread, you’re wondering?
Well, Einkorn is a type of wheat. It’s considered an ancient grain and contains less gluten than traditional flour. Einkorn wheat uses 80% of the grain, so it’s certainly considered a whole grain, too.
The word “einkorn” is German and means “single grain” meaning it is not hybridized.
All that is to say it’s just a different kind of wheat. It can be used instead of white wheat in most recipes without the sacrifice of flavor. Einkorn is more yellow, so it will bake with a buttery hue, rather than a stark white one.
I wanted to bake a loaf of bread that would be equally good for toast or sandwiches and this is definitely it! It tastes excellent toasted with butter or with a nut butter spread or even with good ‘ol ham and cheese. Next time, I’ll try it with chicken salad or a BLT.
How about YOU try it for your favorite sandwich and let me know what you think?
