Submitted by Betty-Baker – I always substitute soy or almond milk in all of my bread recipes, and the loaves disappear very quickly! Likewise, you should be able to substitute soy or rice milk powder for the milk powder called for in many bread machine recipes. You may even be able to safely omit it, as the milk powder is added just for flavor and texture. It won't effect the rising or crumbliness of the bread. That being said, I found a few basic bread machine recipes that are naturally dairy free.
- 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 (.25 ounce) package bread machine yeast
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
Place the water, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine. Let the yeast dissolve and foam for 10 minutes. Add the oil, flour and salt to the yeast. Select Basic or White Bread setting, and press Start.
