How to make basic vegan white bread in the Bread Maker

So guys, as with all of my vegan bread machine recipes, you need to check you bread makers manual to see how to place your ingredients in your machine.

Some bread machines want you to add all of the liquid ingredients first, followed by the dry.

And still other models instruct you to do the opposite and add the dry followed by the wet.

Be sure to follow YOUR bread makers instructions with the ingredient I have listed here.

How Much Bread does this recipe make?

This recipe is designed for a 2 pound loaf.

My machine makes a tall loaf. When I remove my bread I slice it vertically to create two smaller 1 pound loaves that resemble more of a traditional piece of bread.

How to use vegan white bread

This simple bread machine recipe is perfect for everyday use.

We use this bread for breakfast as toast or french toast.

We also use it for lunch and supper as a garlic bread for pasta, or to go with a hearty Lentil Barley Soup!

This recipe is very neutral so you can use this bread for almost anything!

Can You Freeze Vegan White Bread

As with most bread recipes, this one also freezes very well.

I recommend allowing the bread to fully cool before slicing it.

Once it is all sliced, place your bread in a large Ziploc freezer bag for later use.

Your bread will stay good for up to 6 months when frozen like this.

How long does this white bread last?

If you keep your bread on the counter like we do, it will last about 4 days before it starts to dry out and get stale.

I store my bread in a large Ziploc storage bag that I reuse when I make a new loaf.

You can place this bread in the fridge to make it last longer-up to a week.

And, as stated above, you can also freeze this loaf for later use.

    I tried making this for the first time and it came out deflated and a super light crust. I used coconut milk as we can’t use almond milk or soy milk.

    • Megan Kerry

      If it was the canned coconut milk it’s possible that it was too heavy for this recipe. You could try it with the coconut milk that you buy in a carton, like Silk coconut.

    Hi Megan,
    Just want to be clear regarding the earlier comment; this recipe is for one large loaf that you cut in half.

    • Megan Kerry

      Yes! That’s exactly right:)

  • Rowan

    I made this bread and when it rose the dough overflowed in my bread machine! I have a standard sized Black & Decker machine and have never had this problem before. When I came back to this recipe to write this feedback I (now) noticed that it says the serving size is 2 loaves. Why?? I ended up transferring the heaping mess of (partially still uncooked) dough into the oven to finish baking and it tasted amazing despite the unusual appearance. I haven’t yet tackled the process of cleaning my machine…but despite the fact that this bread was really tasty, I may go back to simply following (and ‘veganizing’) the recipes from the book the machine came with.

    • Megan Kerry

      Oh no! That sounds like a big mess! The serving is for 2 loaves because once it’s done baking I slice it down the middle so that instead of a really tall loaf you have two long and short loaves similar to a traditional loaf of bread. Flour can be difficult to work with and depending on the humidity of where you are baking. You may end up with more or less “mass” of flour when you measure by cups (volume). You could give this recipe another try in the bread maker but reduce the yeast by 1/4 tsp so it doesn’t overflow on you. good luck!

    I’ve made this bread a couple times while we’re quarantined. I’m subbing a quarter cup of the flour for ground flax seed and it’s delish! Thank you very much for the superb, simple recipe!

    • Megan Kerry

      Awesome idea Heather! Great way to add some extra nutrition. I hope you and your family are well:)
