Cold Oven Yeast Einkorn Pepita Bread

Labels: { , , } | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

Vegan, 100% wholegrain, no waiting because no kneading or proofing needed and you don't even have to preheat the oven, plus with only 6 ingredients! If you don't have einkorn, then use spelt instead. Goes great with nutella, jam or peanut butter for a hearty and delicious breakfast.

Cold Oven Yeast Einkorn Pepita Bread

adapted from here
  • 250 ml Lukewarm water
  • 21 g Fresh yeast
  • 250 g Wholegrain einkorn flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 80 g Pepita, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp Sea salt
  1. Place lukewarm water in a mixing bowl. Crumble the fresh yeast into the water and stir until dissolved.
  2. Add in einkorn flour, coconut sugar, chopped pepita, and sea salt. Use a handheld mixer attached with dough hooks to mix the ingredients until well combined and smooth.
  3. Turn the dough into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and place in the middle of a cold oven. Fill a baking pan with water and place at the bottom of the oven.
  4. Now turn on the oven at 180C/350F and bake for about 50 minutes until the bread looks nicely golden brown. Turn onto a wire rack to cool. | © 2017 | | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

Really? I've never heard of this bread-making method.Very interesting.

Your spelt bread with pepita looks gorgeous. Not sure how the gluten free bread will rise if kept in a cold oven. It does need some warm temperature.

Tricia Buice 13/4/17 13:24

What a fascinating recipe Angie. It sounds so incredibly easy too. Love that Nutella spread but would have to try the peanut butter for a hearty, delicious way to start the day! Yum!

No Spoon Necessary 13/4/17 14:58

I make this bread at least once every two weeks, I used to make it even more often, but I usually use whole wheat or whole spelt and various seeds. It is delicious and so easy to make, one of my favorite breads.

I've always wanted to try using fresh yeast, but have been intimidated by it. I think I need to step up my game and try your recipe!

Eva Taylor 17/4/17 16:13

This is what North Americans refer to as a quick bread, as it is not leavened by yeast. It looks super moist and delicious, particularly with the Nutella. As FYI, I am still unable to comment with Chrome.

Interesting post! Happy Easter! 🐇🐣🐇🐣🐇🐣🐇🐣

I've always wondered how yeast bread would turn out if you placed it in a cold oven to bake. Now I know. Will be trying this sometime this week. I have spelt so glad to see that works. Thanks for this inspiration Angie!

Sounds like a great way of baking :O
