Bread is traditionally vegan! Depending on where you live, many of the breads you’ll find on store shelves don’t contain eggs or dairy! The base ingredients for *traditional* bread are simply flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and warm water.
Add-ins of milk, butter, or eggs, are fairly new ideas. Bread was invented to be basic, easy, and cheap.
I sometimes like to make bread from scratch, though. Nothing beats the smell and taste of freshly baked bread with butter (Vegan butter, of course).
This recipe is super easy to follow, and tastes so delicious! I hope you all enjoy it.
1 Cup warm (not hot) Water
1 Tablespoon Active Yeast
1 1/2 Tablespoons Sugar
1/2 Tablespoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
3-4 Cups Flour
1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast into the water. Then add the sugar, salt, canola oil, and 2 cups of the flour. Stir and combine. Then add just enough flour, 1/2 cup of flour at a time, to form a soft dough. The dough should be soft but not sticky.
2. Turn dough onto a slightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-10 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl, rolling it once to oil the top of the dough ball. Cover and let rise in a warm place, about 30-90 minutes.
3. Punch the dough down. Then shape into a loaf and place into your greased bread pan. Cover again and let rise until doubled, about 30-45 minutes.
4. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan to wire rack to cool.
-Nuts and seeds would be great add-ins to this bread! My first time making this I added hemp seeds to the dough and it was great.
These three are from my very first attempt, I added hemp seeds inside, and pumpkin seeds on the outside.
This is a similar recipe to the basic white bread recipe found on allrecipes.com. I changed the ratios and directions slightly though ✌🏼 all white bread recipes are very similar though.
