Does anyone have any good recipes for bread machines that do not use dairy products, nuts, or sesame seeds? I am getting tired of plain white bread and many of the recipes call for dry milk. Thanks!

Try using powdered nondairy creamer for recipes calling for dry milk. You might have to decrease the sugar and/or salt in your bread recipe to obtain an excellent rise but that should be all the adjustments necessary. (You can also substitute liquid nondairy creamer for liquid milk in the same manner.) Enjoy!

The french bread recipe for my breadmaker doesn't use any milk, otherwise it's basically the same as the regular bread. I think the only difference is the crust is thicker, so if you like a soft crust you'll need to use the light setting.

We are bread machine fanatics! I have good recipes for that machine that are dairy egg and nut free and are so good!!! I am a fast typer so here goes:

all are AWESOME;

Whole wheat
1 1/2c soymilk
3 1/2 c white flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
3 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp yeast

you can also just skip dry milk when all recipes ask for it and it is not noticeable

you can use that recipe for pizza dough or breadsticks or rolls . can add rosemary from the garden and press dough on the machine and then bake it in the oven on a baking stone with corn meal under it and olive oil!!!

yummy white bread

1 1/2 c soy milk
4 c white flour
3-4 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp yeast

also good bread:

1 c water
3 c white flour (or 2c white and 1 c whole wheat and if use whole wheat may need an extra few tbsp water)
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
2 tsp yeast

can use all dough for the land of nod cinnamon buns (DELICIOUS, run a search for this here to find that recipe----i just left the vanilla pudding powder out of that recipe and it turned out VERY GOOD!!!)

from any bread machine book, just leave out the dry milk or substitute soy margarine or soy milk as needed.

dinner rolls

1 c water
2 tbsp margarine (soy)
1 1/2 T water, 1 1/2 T oil, 1 tsp baking powder mixed together and added (egg substitute)
3 1/4 c white flour
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
3 tsp yeast

YUMMY-----i put this in a bagel pan and made bagels and added poppy seeds on top with olive oil. also put this recipe in a hamburger bun pan and made that.

i have more but start with this!!! hope you like it . we do!! you can also make pretzels with the dough and buy the rock salt to put on top.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Donni - I wonder if I could use the liquid creamer as substitute for cream in other recipes?

I can't wait to try the recipes you posted, AlwaysAvoidAnaphylaxis! I have also been looking for a bagel recipe so I am excited to try that one too!

AlwaysAvoidAnaphalaxis - Since you are such a bread machine fan, how do you keep you bread fresh past one day? Plastic wrap is such a pain and doesn't work that great. I am starting to make a lot of bread and would love to find a way to keep it fresh.

We bought a breathable bread plastic box from The Baker's Catalogue and that works well.

Also we use plastic containers from Fresh Fields/Wellspring.

Since homemade bread does not have preservatives, after 3-4 days, you have to make more!

Here's a tried and true recipe. Never fails.
In order:

1 cup plus 3 TBLS water
3 TBLS vegetable oil
3 TBLS honey
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 C bread flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast

This makes the best white bread. It is my MIL's recipe and she has also used it for years.

A natural preservative is "potato water!" Peal and boil a bunch of potatoes--drain and save the water. (I put it in ice trays and put the cubes in a plastic bag in the freezer.) Use the potato water in lieu of water called for in your recipe. Most breads will then stay fresher longer--many up to a week!

Non-dairy creamer can be used in place of regular creamer. Cream? I'd suggest trying it and seeing what happens.

For bread machine recipes on-line, go to [url="http://www.hungrymonster.com"]www.hungrymonster.com[/url] for about 549 bread machine recipes...and thousands of other recipes! A good bread machine book which indicates if a recipe is dairy-free is "The Bread Machine Baker" by Elizabeth M. Harbison.

I bake all our breads--even the speciality types. Our breads rarely last more than 2 days and if they do, I make croutons and/or bread crumbs. I keep the bread fresh by putting it in a plastic storage bag with a twist tie--taking all the air out before closing it. Even my challah lasts all week--if I hide it!

Donni - I cannot find plastic bags big enough for the bread. What size do you use and where do you find them? Also, does the potato water change the flavor of the bread?

Groups: None
By Donni on Sat, 04-27-02, 14:35

The potato water doesn't change the taste of the bread--at least, I can't tell a difference! It does make my Challah firmer so I don't always use it in that recipe. Otherwise, it works well and is a great way to get some extra nutrition in my family, too.

I usually buy the store brand of plastic storage bags. Food Lion sells one which says on the box that it will hold a 1 1/2 lb. loaf. It does work for that size. For a larger loaf, I usually cut the loaf in half.

Donnie, thanks for the idea of potato water. I'm going to have to try that.

For bagging I use Glad - large 3.79 L
25.4 cm x 35.5 cm. For a really big loaf (mushroom) I have to either cut in half, or cut off the top.

I just cut the big loaves in half and put them in rubbermaid plastic storage containers.

Here's my favorite recipe:

1 2/3 c. water
2 tsp. butter or margarine, softened
1/4 c. honey
2 tsp. salt
2 c. whole wheat flour
2 c. bread flour
1/3 c. wheat germ
1/3 c. oatmeal
2 tsp. active dry yeast

makes a 2 lb. loaf. Use whole wheat setting on your machine.

I made your recipe...excellent! It's now in my file of favorites, too! Thanks!

(As is my habit, I added a tablespoon of gluten to it due to using regular whole wheat flour. I also used steel-cut oats as I was out of regular oatmeal--had a "nutty" texture to the crust. Pretty, too!)

Has anyone tried using sour milk? In my case I use goats milk and at times have some that has soured. I have read that it is good in baked product. I made pancakes and they were great.

I make "buttermilk bread" which I think is better than any store bought bread! You ought to be able to use sour milk in place of the buttermilk. The recipe for 3 sizes of "Old Fashioned Buttermilk Bread" is at [url="http://www.breadworld.com"]http://www.breadworld.com[/url]

AlwaysAvoidAnaphalaxis - finally got around to trying your "Yummy White Bread"...and it is yummy! I was very surprised since it has no oil, butter, margarine or cream in it. It was a beautifully shaped loaf, cuts well for sandwiches, and tastes great! Thanks for sharing it. (I hope to get around to trying more of your recipes. I make 4-5 loaves a week but most times stick to just the recipes that are "in my head" when I don't have time to look them up!)

Just re-raising in hopes of some new recipes & interest.

After finding the freaking tree nut in loaf of commercial bread this week, I'm returing to baking all my own. Hoping to use bread machine as much as possible for awhile since it's hotter than he11 here in far west Texas right now.

I would love a tried & true mostly whole wheat recipe for good-slicing, moist sandwich bread. (I've not yet tried Amy's recipe above which is partly whole wheat.)

Frustrated, frapped, and ready for a vacation --

I happened upon this thread during a search. I tried the bread recipe that Katie"s Mom suggested. It was very tasty! We have to eliminate soy, egg, dairy, and peanut, so I it's slightly more challenging to find recipes. I am loving this site! ...and my bread [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Reraising to see if anyone has any other bread machine recipes that are dairy-free and poppyseed free...Nut free goes without saying of course! LOL

One of the recipes mentioned non dairy creamer, but I have never found one that does not contain milk protein. What brand is truly milk free and safe for milk allergic people?

If a recipe includes either milk or water plus dry milk, I simply substitute soymilk.

This has always worked for me, and I have made many different bread machine recipes.

By bonestable on Thu, 08-17-06, 23:47

In addition to using the soymilk, if the recipe calls for butter I substitute the same volume of canola oil.

Finally have my bread machine unpacked & am going to let it do some work for me this coming Thanksgiving week.

Anyone have any new recipes to add here?

Sitting here hungry & cold this morning, so a good, thick, warm slice of bread slathered in something tasty would really hit the spot!
