Hey there! I just got a new bread machine (brand is "Breadman") and my mother and I are arguing because she said the fat in regular milk will make the bread, and soy milk won't. Is there maybe something I can replace the milk with so I don't have to use regular 2% milk? I want the bread to be vegan, and we just keep arguing because she doesn't think I should be replacing the eggs and the milk (I have already convinced her to let me use Ener-G egg replacer for the eggs). Anybody have any experience with making bread, and have any tips?

Water. Actually soy or any other non dairy milk are just fine.
I've always just used water, flour, yeast, some sugar, and maybe a bit of olive oil.

I just checked on Do you have a kindle? Theres a .99 cent download of a vegan bread baking book three people (out of 3) gave 5 stars to. Even if you don't, you can download to your computer. I've done that with their freebies!

I've used silken tofu with very good results to replace eggs in baking. 1/4 cup tofu per egg.
I've done this with cinnamon rolls, and biscuits. The biscuits were amazing!

BTW, I've been seeing many bread machines in thrift stores and have been tempted to get one on half price day.
I say a Breadman the other day. Let me know the specifics!

Yeah, soymilk works fine.


I rarely use it though and never use anything egglike. They're just not needed for most breads other than some specialty items. I generally go with a very lean dough - just flour, salt, yeast, and water (and a little bit of sugar to start the yeast feeding).

When I make bread I use traditional recipes, they never require milk (or eggs).
