Bread with added apple cider

20 Jan 2017

I have read about adding vinegar into bread dough. Was trying to make non dairy bread for daughter. As she finds taking dairy cause outbreak. So, yesterday I tried adding a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar into my bread dough. And skip egg and milk. I was really surprised to see how tall the dough has rise during baking. It kinda "overflow" and resulting a very tall bread.

Thought that the bread may be sour or smell of vinegar. But nope! It actually have a fruity aroma. Very nice. I guess the aroma comes from the apple cider mixed with the yeast. The texture of bread is really soft and nice and fragrance.😊

This is like vegan there is no egg and no milk and no butter. 

250g Water
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Sea salt 
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp olive oil (or replace with butter or margarine)
330g Bread flour (I had replaced 50g of bread flour with rye flour)

1 tsp instant yeast

The above pictures are bread added with soy powder and apple cider vinegar. Tall and round.😊

Ingredients (updated 12Apr2017):
250g Water
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Sea salt 
2 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Soy Powder
2 Tbsp olive oil (or replace with 25g butter or margarine)
230g Bread flour
100g Wholemeal flour(can use bread)

1 tsp instant yeast

Directions using Bread Maker:
1)Place water, apple cider vinegar, salt, sugar,(Soy powder, if you are using), oil and breadflour into the baking tin of the bread machine.  Make an indentation on the flour and add in the instant yeast. Then cover the yeast with some of the flour.

Note : Please place ingredients according to the sequence as stated in the instruction manual for your bread machine.

2) I used "Sweet Bread"  "Function 2" with "Light" crust. Select 750g. My BM takes 2hrs 40mins for sweet bread to complete the whole cycle.

3)When the loaf is ready, there will be a continuous beep sound. Remove tin and shake out the loaf onto a rack and leave to cool. Appro. an hour. Slice it and serve.

Update on 21Jan2017:
The bread remain very soft even after the 2nd day.
