Instructions
  1. (The following instructions are for the Electrolux or Magic Mill Mixer. You can use other stand mixers, a bread machine or mix by hand but you will have to adjust the directions according to your preferred method.)
  2. Electrolux Mixer: Add the cashew milk, yeast, agave syrup, and melted vegan butter and mix using the roller and scraper attachments. Turn to speed 2 and start the mixer. Add about half of the flour until well combined. This will make a loose dough, similar to pancake batter. Turn off the mixer and let it sit for 20 minutes. The dough will start to bubble as the yeast activates.
  3. Add the rest of the Ingredients: Turn on the mixer and turn up to speed 4 or 5 and add the oats and salt. Continue to add the rest of the flour slowly. You may not need all of it. Mix until combined. Let the machine knead the dough until it pulls away from the sides. If the dough is too wet, add more flour one tablespoon at a time. When it pulls away from the sides turn the timer on for 5 minutes and let the machine knead the dough. When the machine turns off, pull a large piece off and try the window pane test. If it does not, knead for another few minutes until it does pass the window pane test. When it passes, remove the scraper and the roller and place the lid on the bowl and let rise for 60 minutes.
  4. SHAPING: Divide the dough in half. Each half should weigh approximately 2 lbs. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled surface, and shape into a 7″ x 12″ rectangle. Roll the dough into a loaf using the short side. Repeat with the other dough piece. Place the loaves into lightly greased 8″ x 5″ loaf pans, cover the pans (with an acrylic proof cover, or with lightly greased plastic wrap), and allow the dough to rise for 60 to 90 minutes, until it has crested 1″ to 2″ over the rim of the pans.
  5. Alternately, you can divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and shape into buns. They make excellent sandwich or hamburger buns.
  6. BAKING: Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 190°F. If the bread appears to be browning too quickly, tent it with aluminum foil for the final 10 minutes of baking. If baking buns, check them after 20 minutes. They are ready when the tops are golden brown and the thermometer registers 190ºF.
