This dairy free bread recipe is perfect for sandwiches, french toast, bread pudding and more. An easy recipe that should be in everyone's book! It's a completely vegan bread recipe that is allergy friendly! 6 ingredients and just one bowl!
Start by mixing together a pinch of sugar with the yeast into a bowl of warm water (not hot, warm to touch). Let set for 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together 1/4 cup sugar, olive oil, and applesauce. Mix until well combined.
Add in the yeast mixture and one cup of flour. Using a dough hook, start mixing, scraping down as necessary.
Once almost together, add another cup of flour and combine.
Add remaining cup and a half of flour and knead with dough hook for about 5 minutes. If there are any little pieces remaining that have not combined inside of the dough, lift up from the dough hook and knead those pieces in by hand. The dough should not be sticky at all. If it is, add a bit more flour until it's not.
Turn oven off.
Rub 1 tbsp oil over the dough and place it back inside the bowl.
Wet a towel with water to make damp. Cover bowl with cloth. Place in oven and let rise for 60 minutes.
Remove the towel and separate the bread into three, even sized balls.
Place inside a greased bread pan. Place back in oven (still off) for 20 minutes. The bread should be peaking over top of the bread pan at the end of the time.
Remove from oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees. When oven has reached temperature, place in and cook for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let sit for 20 minutes. Use as needed.
