Ezekiel Bread Recipe

Ezekiel Bread is Known as the "Bible Bread" or "Manna Bread"

Ezekiel 4:9 reads: "Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and afitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.". Ezekiel was able to survive off this bread for 2 years in the desert. Ezekiel bread is combines certain grains and legumes to make it a complete protein, with very high nutrition levels. This is a very sweet, moist, heavy, cake-like bread. Ezekiel bread can be a bit pricy in stores but fairly cheap to make at home with your grain mill.

Ezekiel Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of Lukewarm Water
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 2 tsp. Salt
  • 2 tsp. Yeast
  • 5 cups of Ezekiel Flour (made from the Ezekiel Bread Premix)

Directions:

  1. Combine and mix all ingredients in a mixer, add the Ezekiel Flour a little at a time.
  2. Stir or mix until well-kneaded, about 10 minutes. (This is batter-type bread and will not form a smooth ball)
  3. Pour dough into greased pans. You may use 2 large loaf pans (10x5x3) or 3 medium loaf pans or 2 cake pans(9x13).
  4. Let rise in a warm place for one hour or until the dough is almost to the top of the pan.
  5. If it rises too much it will overflow the pan while baking.
  6. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes for loaf pans and 35-40 minutes for brownie pans.

This is very sweet, moist, cake-like bread. Very delicious by itself.

You may also add fruits and nuts or use the flour made from this mixture in other favorite recipes.
