I have a bread machine and make bread using margarine (I need to avoid all dairy). The problem is the margarine doesn't always mix properly and sometimes ends up on the outside of the dough, leaving shiny dark crunchy spots. The recipe I am following is
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 3 tbs margarine
- 1/2 tbs salt
- 1/2 tbs + 1 tsp sugar
- 4 1/8 cups A/P flour (Canadian A/P flour)
- 1 tsp bread machine yeast
Can I substitute some kind of oil instead of margarine? I suspect this will mix better but I'm not sure about how the chemistry works.
