I love my bread maker. I've had it about 10 or 11 years now and it has always made wonderful bread. It's an old West Bend Automatic purchased back in the day when bread machines were sort of expensive - I see them now for less than $50 - that always amazes me...

Anyway, this is a veganized version of an old-fashioned bread recipe - it always turns out nicely and makes wonderful sandwiches - of course there's nothing better than hot buttered (I mean smart balanced) bread - except maybe hot bread with strawberry jam...

...and the best part is that crusty bit at the end with the hole in it...

Vegan Old Fashioned White Bread

6 ounces soy milk - 90-100 degrees F
2 cups bread flour
1 T sugar
1 t salt
1 T margarine
1 1/2 t active dry yeast or 1 t bread machine yeast

Add ingredients in order given and set machine for desired bread color.


  1. Your bread does look good. I still make bread occasionally and I always get the crusty end piece. We like homemade bread for sandwiches, too. E

  2. Do you still blow the top off your cooker...
