Dairy Free Braided White Bread Recipe


  • 1 1/4 cups water, room temp
  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp dry yeast


  1. Place all ingredients in bread maker in order noted in recipe
  2. Turn breadmaker to dough cycle
  3. Open the machine 1/2 way through and check to make sure dough is okay - if too dry add a tsp of water, if too wet, add 1-2 Tbs bread flour - the dough changes consistency based on humidity/heat/etc so it's something I have to change every single time I make any type of bread.
  4. Once dough cycle is complete, place in a greased bowl, turn over to coat completely, cover with a clean towel and allow to rest in a warm, draft-free place for an hour or until it has doubled in size
  5. Remove from bowl, place on floured board and punch down lightly
  6. Divide the dough into 3 pieces, roll each into same size/length ropes
  7. Line the strips side by size and pinch ends together
  8. Braid the strips, pinch ends together
  9. Set braided dough on parchment lined baking pan
  10. Cover and allow to rise 45 minutes or until doubled in size
  11. Preheat oven to 350
  12. Bake for 30-45 minutes, loaf thumps when you tap on it, and it's lightly browned
  13. Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly before slicing
