Soy and Milk-free Bread Recipe

     My grandson has been diagnosed with Soy and milk allergy.  Let me tell you EVERYTHING has soy in it.  I didn't realize it until I was trying to find stuff for him to eat when he came to visit.  There's even soy in some icepops!!!!
    My son-in-law, who works in the food industry says it's because soy is cheap to grow and is high in protein so snack foods that are trying to look healthy put soy in them so they can claim they're a good source of protein.  UGH!
  Anyway I wanted to make bread for my grandson because he loves it and most breads on the market have soy in it.   I adapted my bread machine recipe for white bread and I present it here for anyone with similar issues.
                                                          Soy and Milk-free Bread Recipe

11/2 (one and one half) cups of water
2 tblsps of olive oil (probably any oil would do, that's what I had on hand)
4-5 cups of flour.  (Start with four cups.  I think it needed extra flour because of the added liquid
                                from  the oil and rice milk)
3 tblsps of rice milk
2 tblsps of sugar
2 tsps of salt
pkg of yeast

This makes a two pound loaf.  Put it in your bread machine in the order above.  Set it on basic/white cycle for a medium crust color. Check it after a few minutes of mixing and start adding more flour until it is the correct consistency for bread. (usually a nice pliable dough ball)

This bread came out delicious.  Even my teenager who won't eat anyhing that's different liked it.(course I never told her some of the ingredients were changed.  But she couldn't tell the difference.)

  3. Oh no, it's the worst when an allergy develops for something that is in everything. The plus side, you'll become very innovative. :)

  6. I've always wanted a bread maker. They've been a little scary to me because I think there's so much involved. You made it seem like a snap. I want one! Oh no, your poor grandson! Luckily he has an awesome nana like you. Thanks for linking up, I hope you have a great weekend.

  7. I love my breadmaker and it really is easy. You just put the ingredients in it in the order of the recipe and set it and forget it. three hours later or so, you have bread. A favorite fall meal is beef stew in the crockpot, and bread from the breadmaker all while I'm ot on a hayride with my grandsons.

  8. We just found out that my 12 yo stepson has allergies to wheat, corn, soy, tomato, peanuts and walnuts. The poor kid! He lives with us during the Summer, so I plan on making him all kinds of yummy foods with substitutes.
