I always wanted to make a vegan bread recipe as soon as i made a batch of homemade soy milk. And it came out quite good. It had a lovely crust and a moist and fluffy interior which a bread should have..So try this out and let me know how it turned out..
Preparation Time : 15 mins
Resting Time : 1 hour 30 mins to 2 hours
Baking Time : 35 to 40 mins
Makes : 1 loaf
Dried Yeast – 1 tblspn
Warm Soy Milk or Warm Milk – 1/2 cup
Warm Water – 1/2 cup + extra
Honey or Agave or Maple Syrup – 2 tblspn
Salt – 1 1/2 tsp
Olive Oil – 1 tblspn
Take warm water and milk in a mixing bowl.
Add in oil, agave, yeast and mix well. Set aside till the yeast foams up.
Now in a separate bowl, mix flour and salt well.
Now add this to the yeast mix and knead into a soft dough.
Place the dough in a oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for a hour till it is doubled in size.
Now punch the air down and add more flour to knead it into a soft dough.
Now shape it into a loaf shape and place it on a oiled loaf pan and cover again. Let it rise for 30 mins or 40 mins till it is doubled in size.
In the last 5 mins, preheat the oven to 190 degree C.
Now brush the top of the bread with soy milk and bake it for 35 to 40 mins till the top is golden.
Remove and let it cool completely.
Remove from pan and slice and serve.
