Easy Vegan White Bread Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 50 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 25 mins
▢ 1 1/4 cups plant based milk
▢ 2 tbsp yeast
▢ 2 tsp salt
▢ 1 tbsp sugar
▢ 5 cups plain flour
▢ 1/4 cup vegan butter, melted
1Add the plant based milk, yeast, salt, and sugar to a mixing bowl. Stir together, cover the bowl with a dish cloth and set aside for the yeast to bloom for around 10 minutes.
2Gradually add the flour around 1/2 cup at a time and mix it in using a rubber spatula. Once you have added all the flour, add the vegan butter and mix once more until thoroughly combined.
3Knead the dough using your hands for around 10 minutes, until smooth and stretchy. It should feel sticky, but not wet.
4Cover the bowl with a dish cloth and set aside in a warm place to proof for 30 minutes, until roughly doubled in size.
5Transfer the dough to a lightly-floured surface. Use your hands to stretch it out into a rectangle, then fold it in on both sides. Next, roll it up tightly into a log around 25cm in length.
6Lightly grease a loaf tin with butter or olive oil. Place the dough inside, cover and allow to proof for an hour more. During this time, it should roughly double in size once again.
7Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F.
8Bake the bread in the preheated oven for around 25-30 minutes. When done, remove the bread from the oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
