My homemade white bread in a bread machine is super popular but I was getting a lot of requests for vegan options. So, I created this Vegan Machine Bread Recipe.
I use the Zojirushi bread machine but you are free to use any bread machine. Just check the manual for specific instructions. The great thing about the Zojirushi Virtuoso is that it has two kneading blades. This feature allows for the dough to mix evenly and the bread to come out more even instead of tall on one side and short on the other. I have also never seen any unbaked flour in the bread pan with this machine.
Note that the only difference between the vegan machine bread recipe and my regular white bread recipe is that this recipe skips the milk powder and the olive oil replaces butter. I noticed no noticeable difference in the taste, texture or softness of the bread. The vegan bread was just as delicious 🙂
Further, this recipe uses active dry yeast, sugar, salt, water, bread flour and olive oil. If you haven’t baked with your yeast, make sure to test it first. You only need to do this once with any batch of yeast. Take half a teaspoon of yeast and soak it in a quarter cup of warm (not hot) water with a pinch of sugar. If the yeast mixture turns frothy in about 15-20 minutes, you are good to go. If not, toss it and buy a fresh batch of yeast. I usually bulk buy my yeast on Amazon.
