I often prefer to use the dough setting on my bread machine and then bake my bread in the oven. I like the size of a 9×5 loaf pan better than the bread maker loaf size. It’s all about personal preference. If you’d like to bake your bread in the oven, this is my favorite dairy free bread recipe that doesn’t require baking in the bread maker.

  1. Tried this today having friends over for dairy free dinner. This was better than my usual bread machine recipe. Came out perfect and really tasty. This is my new favorite!

    1. I’m so glad that you loved it as much as my family does! Even though I’m no longer dairy free, this is still my go to bread. It tastes better than my ‘regular’ recipe too!

  2. Love this bread so much. I came across it when I went DF breastfeeding my son and it was the first recipe I came across and I haven’t looked back. Now that we have ventured into the world of solids though, I’m thinking ahead to feeding this bread to my son but he can’t have honey until he’s over a year. Have you had any successful substitutions for honey?

    1. I’m so glad you love this recipe! I’ve also been baking it since I went dairy free to breastfeed my now 8 year old son and have never looked back, even though I am no longer dairy free. I have never tried to substitute anything for the honey- but my first try would be light corn syrup instead of honey. If you give it a try, I’d love to hear how it goes!
