    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!:

    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

    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.

    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?

    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!

    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...

    I get most of my recipes from:

    VegWeb, breads section

    King Arthur Flour, recipe section - over 1.200 recipes

    Cooks.com, bread section - just use vegan ingredients

    Home Baking Association, recipes section

    That should get you started

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

    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.

    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
    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...
    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.

    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.

    Hey,

    All flours, to my knowledge, in their pure form are Vegan. They all come from grains, wheat, oats, kamut, spelt, quinoa, rice, soy, etc.

    Just about any receipe can be tweeked and made Vegan. Olive oil (or whatever oil u prefer) instead of butter. Soy, rice, grain/nut milk instead of dairy.

    Unless the bag says so, the flour should be vegan. Some contain traces of milk and eggs. They normaly say so cause of allergies.

    Default Making your own Bread

    After reading this article http://www.nzherald.co.nz/category/s...ectid=10466880
    I am inspired to start making my own bread, I have never made my own bread before but can see so many benefits vegan, organic, wheat free, unprocessed grains and at last I will be able to eat fruit bread again as all the fruit breads I have looked at contain milk solids and or honey.

    I am thinking of investing in a quality bread-maker as my baking skills are lacking.

    We have a bread machine but also make Irish soda bread as it's quick and easy and doesn't involve leaving in airing cupboards to rise! Trouble is homemade bread is so nice a loaf is gone in 5 minutes

    I use a bread machine very often and really like it. I like to grind up flax seed to make a granary loaf extra nutritious. I like to make malt loaf too with dates in, that's very easy to do and you don't need the machine. Yum...might go and make some now ;-)

    I like adding nuts or seeds - especially hemp seeds - to quick breads, whether or not they call for it. I'm sure this would work with rising breads too.

    Well - I do all my own bread - even without a bread maker it just takes a few minutes each day - because all the work is done by the dough! I have also used a bread-maker - and it makes less mess - but i don't find it any easier really - as you are left with an odd shaped tin to clean at the end. I am surprised that there are some makers that recommend milk as the liquid- it really is not necessary - bread is just flour water and yeast really - all the additions like fat of various types, seeds and fruit are not strictly necessary but just there fore personal taste and extra nutrition etc. I suppose that doughs with fruit in are often richer - so tend to have butter, egg etc in most recipes - but I'm sure it is not needed. I just experiment. I love soda bread also and as Hemlock says - that is even easier!

    I have used powdered almond milk for bread machine recipes and it has worked really well. Mostly I just use flour, water, salt and yeast. I did get some powdered soya milk to try but haven't got round to it yet.

    Smile Re: Making your own Bread

    My fiancÚe and I never buy bread from the store. I enjoy baking (in fact, some loafs are cooling right now), and she enjoys my bread so why would we spend a lot of money on something that doesn't taste half as good as what you can make yourself?

    I don't use a bread maker -- they look really weird to me. We do, however, have a wonderful Bosch MUM7200 that I use. It's paid for itself many times over by now. Especially since I use the blender to make soy and oat milk as well.

    I would suggest that you find some recipes that you like, and that you start experimenting as soon as possible. Go nuts -- it's your bread, and you can make it any way you like it. I never use recipes anymore, simply because I like to try new things and because it's so much fun to have something new every time.

    As for tips: if you make your own soy milk, use the soy bean pulp (Okara) in your bread! Incredibly healthy, and the bread will keep you full for a long time. In fact, chickpeas work very well too -- prepare them as if you were making hummus (go ahead and make it runny, of course), and you can easily sneak more wonderful beans into your diet.

    You don't need milk powder (or a vegan alternative), I believe it changes the texture, or is meant to make it last longer, or give a better crust, or something. I never bother. I also don't let my breadmaker go all the way (I'm saving myself until we're married ) but just put it on the dough cycle and make rolls or hot cross buns or what-have-you with the dough.

    Default Baking bread question

    Hi, I have a recipe that I use all the time for sun dried tomato and olive bread. My question is can I swap out half of the AP flour for WW flour or will I have to change the amount of liquid used? I really love this bread but I really think I should add some fibre to it to make it a bit healthier.

    Thanks in advance,

    I tend to use whole wheat flour for anything that calls for flour and I've found that the liquid content remains pretty much the same (I like to make foccacia bread, which I'm assuming is somewhat like yr sun dried tomato and olive bread...)

    For a while after going vegan I started making my own bread, and it usually came out utterly vile. Seriously, I could have built a house with it. I started making jokes about my famous dwarf bread (apologies for the somewhat obscure Discworld reference). But every now and then I'd pop out a loaf that was absolutely perfect, so I kept at it for a while. I haven't done it for a long time now, but I bet I can find the recipe if I poke around my dad's kitchen a bit. It was really simple, just flour, water, baking soda, and... soymilk, I think. It probably just needed some gluten added to enfluffen it. Maybe I should try again.

    PS. My passive-aggressive prick of a dad offered me my mom's old bread machine after she died. I turned it down and took the offer as a challenge.

    PPS. Yes, "enfluffen" is a word. It means "to make fluffier." If you don't believe me, good, because I'm full of shit.

    Default The Bread Thread

    I'm having a really hard time finding commercially sold bread that I like here (they just love to sneak milk into it, or LARD )

    So I've decided to start making my own and was wondering if anyone had any recipes they'd be willing to share. Strictly wholewheat, and the more seeds and stuff in there, the better! Also recipes for fruit loaves would be good (ones with raisins, dates or whatever).

    Please no bread machine recipes - we do have one but we've never been able to get strong bread flour here and the results have always been terrible!

    Thanks.
