Homemade Vegan Buttermilk (15 minutes)

Bread Dough


  • Preheat over to 425°F.
  • In a bowl or large measuring cup, combine the milk and vinegar or lemon and stir to combine. Set aside so mixture will become homemade vegan buttermilk (15 mins).
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
  • Add enough vegan buttermilk to make a thick, shaggy dough. It should be a little wet and sticky. If the dough is too wet to work with add a tablespoon of flour or just enough flour to make it manageable. Sticky dough rises more easily than a dry dough so you want to keep this dough pretty moist since we are working without yeast for the rise.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured area and knead 5 to 10 times - just enough to form a ball. Do not work the dough any more than this.
  • Pat the dough into 1 or 2 loafs about 1-inch high in whatever shape you want.
  • If desired, can try to use sharp knife to make pattern, but it won't be distinctive because of the consistency of the dough.
  • Place dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, so check at 30 and go by this: The dough will be golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. The internal temperature will be about 175°F to 180°F when tested with a digital kitchen thermometer. A skewer inserted into the center of the loaf should come out clean or with a couple of crumbs attached.
  • Allow the bread to cool slightly before slicing. Best served warm or at room temperature for up to 2 days. To keep long longer, place bread in sealed container and place in fridge and use as needed up to 5 days.
