I guess there are recipes on the flour or with the bread machine about how to make vegan bread?

There is, but ignore it because it will probably tell you to put milk powder in.

All you need are flour, salt, yeast, water and oil. You can use the bread machine recipe book as a guide to quantities but I wouldn't trust the more elaborate recipes. My machine booklet advises putting chopped ham in :bleugh!:

i do always love homemade more than store-bought, even bakery bought, i guess i'm just overly lazy, lol

Trust me, I'm usually "lazy" too. I try to cook one pot meals and even if something calls for "minced," I just chop it over the pot and throw it in. But the bread maker with a mix made for it is EASY--if not quick. I just put in the ingredients--liquid, bread mix, yeast on top--and started it up. Just had to scrape the sides once when it beeped, then the bread maker did everything else until I took the bread out and let it cool:D

sounds absolutely divine!! i want to try my hand at old-fashioned bread making sometime, i think it would be a nice time on a rainy sunday...i also want to try making pita but can't find a recipe, i'm thinking of just using a little yeast, water and flour and mixing it until it seems right, kind of a trial and error, unless anyone has a recipe for pita?

I'm having a bit of a problem baking bread. I made some banana bread the other day (Foxytina's recipe :) ) but I had to take it out of the oven after 40 minutes because the top was on the verge of burning. The middle was still gooey banana mush so I couldn't eat it. Does anyone know how you can bake stuff for an hour but avoid burning the top of the loaf. Could I cover it with a thin layer of oil, or something?

Just cover the top loosely with some foil or baking parchment if the cake starts to brown before it's cooked.

coconut, try turning the tempurature down to 325 degrees and bake it for about 50 minutes. i read some people say that 350 degrees was too hot and burned it, next time i make it i will try baking it at 325 instead.

Has anyone got an easy reciepe for Vegan Wheat Free Flat Bread Please ?

Mar 2nd, 2006, 12:12 AM
I need to make some yeast free bread. i have already got some gluten free flour which is meant for baking but need a recipe which is yeast free. My Mum suggested baking soda as a substitute.

Anyone got any recipes or advice?

Hope this helps!

help - my bread went all wrong - i used gluten free flour, water, 1 tbsp of baking powder and i tbsp of olive oil. Cooked at 200 (it was meant to be for 35 mins but I did it for one hour). It was cooked on the outside but all gooey inside still.

Anyone done gluten wheat and yeast free bread? Any ideas what went wrong?

Hey everyone! So I just got a grain mill which is my new best friend because it allows me to turn just about any grain I want into flour, and now I want to start making my own BREAD.

However, I'm having a hard time finding good recipe sites that have good vegan bread recipes. Plain wholewheat is too boring, im talking oats, flax, seeds, buckwheat, rye, millet, whatever! I just wants good healthy grainy/seedy bread but I can't find much guidance...

Also, if the recipes are NOT for bread machines that would be a plus, because I don't have one, although my mom has one she doesn't use much anymore so maybe I can borrow it. Thanks for your help!

I forgot to ask... just in case I can't aquire a bread machine. Does anyone know how to "convert" bread machine recipes into normal bread making recipes?

I'll have to look up my recipe for brown rice bread for you. In the meantime I found this site that talks about converting recipes:

Hi Laura.
Rather late reply, but better late than never...
I bake my own bread, about twice a week. It's a real good idea, if you like cooking, and have the time (it's actually quick, when you get into the habit). Fresh, homemade bread is undoubtedly the best!! I love to serve it warm, when I cook dinner. And the smell in the house is just wonderful... :p

I get most of my recipes from:

VegWeb, breads section (http://vegweb.com/index.php?board=140.0)

King Arthur Flour, recipe section - over 1.200 recipes (http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/)

Cooks.com, bread section - just use vegan ingredients (http://www.cooks.com/rec/ch/breads.html)

Home Baking Association, recipes section (http://www.homebaking.org/recipes/index.html)

That should get you started ;)

I'd love a brown rice bread recipe. :) It is so expensive if I buy it from health food stores.

When I bake bread, all I use is flour, a few herbs, and yeast. I shape the dough into round buns, then bake.

I failed miserably the last few times I tried to make bread, I'd love a bread machine.

Apr 8th, 2006, 06:52 PM
Ive got a bread machine. It is really good. Worth getting and quite fun to watch. Trouble is I can quite happily sit there and eat the whole loaf.:( My husband looks at me and says "Would you like bread with your marg" because I put it on about an inch thick.

Apr 8th, 2006, 11:18 PM
Its not that I dont like making it, its just that Im a really crap cook. If the bread machine does it for me I feel like Ive done it myself somehow (its a "me" thing Scandina:o).
Hehe, ok tabitha :)

I loooove to cook :rolleyes: You'll get better, if you keep trying ;)

Tigerlily - how's the "bread-situation" in Canada?

Most breads have additives which may or may not be vegan. I buy Ezekiel sprouted grain bread ($$$$) or some 'homestyle' whole wheat bread which doesn't had additives. I also eat a lot of pita bread.

Apr 9th, 2006, 05:09 PM
I don't get the whole bread machine thing... I love to make it with my own two hands. It's also very stress relieving to knead the dough :rolleyes:
If you don't like making it, why not just buy it?

Was it just the shops I went to, when I was in York, or doesn't the UK shops have good bread? All I could find was toast/white bread... :confused:

All the packaged bread in the UK is pretty bad and the bread from bakeries or the bakeries in supermarkets they don't have to put ingredients on.

Apr 9th, 2006, 05:12 PM
that really bugs me risker - i like to see whats in my food thanks. its like 'its made in-house and its a little cheaper so you'll eat what we choose to put in it'!

I just did an online asda order and with the aid of their vegan list I bought just about every bread product I could, Cakes, french bread, crumpets, pitta, fajita, scones... You name it, I bought it.

Having not had any bread for a long time and craving it made me go a bit too far though, I couldn't fit it all in the freezer so now I'm having to live off frozen food in order to clear enough space for it all.
