Ingredients

  • 2¼ tsp. active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • ¼ cup water, warm (110°–115°F)
  • ½ cup soymilk, warm (110°–115°F)
  • ½ cup potatoes, cooked and mashed
  • 2 Tbsp. vegan margarine, melted
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • Egg replacement equal to 1 egg
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp. salt

Directions

  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine warm soymilk, mashed potatoes, margarine, sugar, and egg replacement. Add 1½ cups flour and mix well. Stir in salt and yeast mixture. Cover and allow to rise in a warm area for 1½ hours. Mix in remaining 1½ cups flour.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and allow to rise until doubled in bulk. Punch down dough a few times and shape into a slightly oblong loaf. Place loaf on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover and allow to rise again until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut a ¼" deep slice down the length of the loaf. Lightly dust the top with flour and bake for 30–40 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
