Vegan White Bread (Eggless & Dairy-free) recipe

Some of my friends are vegan, they can’t take in eggs or any dairy products. I realized such a simple commodity like a basic white bread is hard for them to just buy over the counter in the bread section at the supermarket. So, I challenged myself to recreate it in order to surprise them with some when I meet them. I tried countless different recipes and many didn’t wow me. Finally, I settled on this after many revisions.

It’s so soft and compact, just like a good enriched white bread you would get from your local bakery store. The key ingredient to make the bread still so soft and fluffy without any milk or butter is water. Don’t bother trying to substitute with almond or soy milk. It would make the bread too dense and heavy. Water makes the dough rise up well, allowing the bread to be springy and soft when it’s baked. Instead, use water and soy milk powder. You get the lovely nutty flavour from the soy milk powder while retaining the properties you would want to get when using water to make your dough.

The first slice (with the crust) will never taste good. I mean, I know there are some people who like to eat that particular part of bread, but not my family! I usually will throw that away, especially when I wrap it up with a clear plastic bag. This way, the beauty of the inside can be revealed to everyone. 

Some may ask me, “Zong Han, why don’t you just bake it in the bread machine?”. Personally, I don’t like the result of my bread when it is being baked in the bread machine. Some of the reasons,

  • Crust is too thick to my liking
  • Weird shape, hard to portion, hard to cut
  • Texture of the bread is too hollow

 When we re-shape our dough the 2nd time, it gives the yeast a chance to work on the proofing evenly. This will help the dough to rise well, allowing it to have smaller air bubbles, resulting in finer texture when it is being baked. Moreover, we have greater control over how it can turn out. If you want to make into dinner rolls or buns, feel free to do so. It is a versatile recipe.

Author Zong Han Chua

Ingredients

  • 300 grams of bread flour
  • 1 tbsp of soy milk powder
  • 4.5 grams 1 ½ tsp of instant yeast
  • 1 ½ tbsp of fine sugar
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 175 ml of water
  • 40 ml of vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Put all of the ingredients into a breadmaker starting from the wet ingredients. You could also use a stand mixer with a dough attachment instead.
  • Knead the dough using the breadmaker for about 25 minutes. It will take about 15 minutes if you are using a stand mixer.
  • Let it proof for an hour until it triples in volume.
  • Then divide the dough into 3 equal portion on a lightly floured surface. Roll each dough into a small disk, then tuck in both sides and roll into a long rectangular shape. Arrange the sides of the dough neatly then roll it up. Make sure to seal the edges and set aside. Repeat this until all 3 portions are done.
  • Transfer into a greased bread tin and let it proof in a warm environment for about 50 minutes until it reaches 80% of the pan. Cover the lid and let it proof for another 15 minutes while you preheat your oven to 180C. If you like your crust to be darker, you could bake it at 200C.
  • Bake it in the oven for about 35 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Once baked, carefully unmould the bread immediately and let it cool over a wire rack with a piece of cloth covering lightly.
  • Once it is fully cooled, use a bread knife or an electric knife to slice the bread neatly in an orderly manner. Then wrap it up with a plastic wrap to store the bread.

I love the scent of a fresh loaf of bread early in the morning. However, making bread can take up a lot of time, not to mention that it is also very tedious too. The fact that I am going through my internship right now, it is even harder for me to find time to bake. Luckily, I was introduced to the Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104 recently and it was such a fun experience making different types of bread so easily.

The Panasonic Bread Maker SD-P104 has up to 13 auto menus for you to chose from, today I will be using menu 8 to make this recipe. Menu 8 allows me to manually add the filling into the dough just before baking. You could use menu 8 to make Hong Kong Pineapple Bread, Cinnamon Roll, and even more!

 I got challenged to make a simple yet elegant bread after I was told by my friends that bread maker is a waste of money as it only makes boring old-school white bread and nothing else. This recipe requires minimum effort with the help of the bread maker. All I needed to do was to add in all the ingredients into the pan, set the setting and let it do its job. When it was time to add the filling in the dough, the machine beeped to inform me that the dough is ready for my own creation. I quickly took it out to roll it into a rectangular shape, spread the filling, roll it into a log and tie it into a knot to reveal the beautiful swirl.

If you are just making a bread with nuts or raisins, simply just put the filling into the raisin dispenser.
