Bread with Tofu

This is a very tasty and reliable recipe which I have adapted for the bread maker. The original recipe is in Baking Bread by Audrey Ellison.


  • 1 large organic egg, beaten
  • 150ml water
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp organic sunflower oil
  • 150g Tofu
  • 3 tbsp mixed seeds, for example sesame and sunflower
  • 400g organic wholewheat flour (you may need slightly less depending on how moist the tofu is)
  • 1 1/2 tsp organic dried yeast


  • put the yeast in first, followed by the dry ingredients then the wet ingredients. Select the wholemeal bread dough program. 
  • Once the dough is made, shape by hand and set to rise in a bread tin
  • Bake  at 200C for 45 minutes


  • Warm the water, and mix in the yeast with a little sugar and keep in a warm place until frothing. 
  • Sift together the flour and salt, mix in the rest of the sugar, and then mix in the water/yeast mixture and the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Kneed together by hand, adding flour if required. Keep kneeding until the tofu is well incorporated. 
  • Leave in an oiled bowl until double in volume. Knock back and kneed again for at least five minutes. 
  • Put the dough into a well-greased loafe tin, and leave to prove until double in volume. 
  • Bake in a hot oven, 200C for around 40 to 45 minutes.
