To the requestor for vegan bread recipes:  I too make non-dairy, no 
egg breads because of my partner's allergies.  In fact, using the 
bread machine (I have tendinitis) means that I'm sure about all the 

I use Ener-G powdered egg replacer, reconstituted, and powdered soy 
milk.  Sometimes I use liquid soy milk but I don't have it on hand 
all the time. I use Fleischmann's unsalted margarine because it's 
lactose free.  You have to watch out for that whey!!

My favorite recipe is from Bread Machine Magic by Linda Rehberg & 
Lois Conway.  Adapted for vegans (and allergic people), it reads like 

Linda's Easy Potato Bread (1 1/2 lb. loaf)

3 c. bread flour
1/4 c. instant potato flakes
1 1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 T. sugar
3 heaping T. powdered soy milk
1 1/2 t. margarine
2 t. yeast
3/4 c. water plus 3/8 cup water (1 c. plus 2 T. water) plus more 
water for Welbilt/Dak (3 T?)

Bake on light crust.

I hope it was ok to post this.  In general I just substitute the soy 
milk powder for milk.  I've also made the Basic Sweet Roll dough 
very successfully (great Jim's Cinnamon Rolls!).

Linda & Lois's other book (whose name I don't have quite right), it's 
something like Bread Machine Magic Hints and was just reissued with 
even more hints, talks about substitutions for allergies, special 
diets, etc.
