Beats the hell out of storebought crapola, works for busy people, and also provides an excuse to indulge one's fetish for kitchen toys.
1) 1 cup plain, lukewarm nondairy milk + 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar (combined & left a few minutes to curdle)
2) 1 1/2 Tb. olive oil
3) 3 Tb. light brown sugar + 2 Tb. agave nectar
4) 1 tsp. salt
5) 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour + 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
6) 2 1/4 tsp. bread machine yeast
Pour the ingredients in lines 1-5 into your bread pan, one line at a time, in order. Then poke a little hole in the flour (without poking through into the moist ingredients) and put the yeast in there. Follow your machine's instructions from here; in mine, this takes 3.5 hours to turn into a 1.5lb loaf, on the whole wheat cycle with the medium crust setting.
And now some notes/questions, since this is my first experiment:
-You can use all whole wheat if you want, and try some other substitutions: many machine recipes recommend a little nonfat dry milk and vital wheat gluten (that's the same VWG used for seitan, right?). Once I get around to buying them, I'm going to try adding 1-2 Tb. powdered soymilk to the dry ingredients, and swapping 2-4 Tb. of the flour for VWG. Experienced machine bakers, do you think these tweaks would make much difference?
