A few months ago I bought a cheap bread machine, then was afraid to use it because I had bought a cheap bread machine and it might not work well… I had read reviews online, many of which contradicted each other. Some people said it sucked, and others said that it worked great but the recipes in the accompanying booklet sucked.
I happened to read a line of postings on the Post Punk Kitchen Forums about bread machine recipes, and found one that worked so well I was amazed and astounded. I’m reposting it here; credit goes to Tami of Vegan Appetite.
This is a basic white loaf adapted from Bread Machine Magic… originally Dede’s Buttermilk Break. It makes a nice loaf that’s easy to cut and stays moist.
1 1/2 pound loaf
1 1/8 to 1 1/4 cups soymilk
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (mix it into the milk, let clot)
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp Earth Balance margarine
3 cups bread flour
2 tsp active dry yeast
