I want to make bread in order to have non dairy bread since it is next to impossible to find at the supermarket.... but SO many recipes call for milk! can I just use water? It should be fine, right?

I'm Andrea - I have three boys - 12 year old twins & an 11 year old

I have never used milk to make my bread... so you should be fine...

my "normal" bread is made of just yeast, water, sugar (or honey), salt and Flour... and it is really yummy

I dont think it would be a problem - the milk gives it a different texture, or something to do with the crust....Softer Crust! Thats it! Milk gives you a softer crust, so water instead will give you a harder crust.



I think. I'm decongestanted and not making too much sense today.

But I'm sure it would be fine.

I am just a throw it in kind if gal...

I have my yeast rise in about 1/4 cup of warm water and about a TBSP of honey or sugar...
When I have a good foam on it I dump it in a bowl, add a bit of salt and a little more honey (not much) and then add about 1 2/3 cups of warm water and stir... then I start adding flour one cup at a time and keep stirring until it all comes together and no longer sticks to the edges of the bowl... dump it out on a floured surface and knead and add flour until silky smooth... put it aside let it rest about 15 min, knead again until I get the right stretchyness... let is rise in the oven, punch, knead a bit and then shape and then let is rise for a few minutes before baking...

For my sourdough I use 1 cup of starter, 1 cup of warm water, some salt and then do the same process for adding flour...
