How To Make Barley Bread Recipe

This recipe will teach you how to make Barley Bread. It is a quick and easy recipe to make. Barley Bread is a very delicious bread, while still warm spread a little butter on top and eat and enjoy it. The flavor and texture is absolutely fantastic. I used to watch my mother making this bread recipe as I use to sit and watch the yeast rise and become bubbly.


  1. 1 tablespoon yeast
  2. 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  3. 1/2 cup warm water
  4. 1 -2 cup barley flour
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  6. 1/2 cup warm water
  7. 1 tablespoon canola oil
  8. 1 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/3 cup white bean flour


  1. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Put the first three ingredients (yeast, 1/2 tsp brown sugar and 1/2 cup warm water) in a small bowl and mix well. Let the yeast bubble and foam.
  3. In a large bowl add 1 cup of the barley flour and the remaining 1/2 cup warm water. Mix together well.
  4. Add the 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar, the oil, and the salt and mix well.
  5. Add the yeast mixture and mix well.
  6. Add the bean flour and mix well.
  7. Add as much more barley flour as you need to make a knead able dough (mine took the entire 1 more cup).
  8. Put some more barley flour down on a work surface and then knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic.
  9. Form 2 small balls and place them on the cookie sheet. Make a small cut in the tops of each.
  10. Let rise until doubled (mine did not get that big but I baked them after about 2 hours).
  11. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 1 hour.
