A lot of my favorite bread recipes call for powdered milk (cow's milk). Particularly in some of the tangier breads, it would seem that goat's milk might be really tasty. Is there anything I should know before buying powdered goat's milk and using it in bread? It's spendy stuff, so an answer of "it's not worth the money" could be useful, particularly from someone who has actually tried it.
I haven't used goat milk in my baking because I don't like the taste of goats milk. I suspect it would be a good idea for you to taste goats milk first to see if you like it if you haven't already. Other than that, there's no reason to not use it.
As far as fat content goes, I only use full-fat dairy in my bread. No adjustments to the recipe are needed.
I've have now done it, and it's lovely. It gives a very slight tang to the bread, almost like a little nod to sourdough. I definitely like that it's full-fat, it's just richer. I used this: Powdered Goat's Milk which is available in most grocery stores here (at drastically different prices, one store's normal price is three times another store's normal price). Interestingly, I cannot find a local source for full-fat powdered cow's milk, making this item even more attractive.
I just made a loaf of bread with the addition of two unpacked scoops of powdered goat's milk and it is fantastic. Without the addition of the powdered goat's milk, the bread was plain, plain, plain. It was like eating a blank piece of paper, and was also dense. Almost like a bagel, but not as chewy. This new loaf, however, is creamy, flavorful, and it's lighter and springier. I'm glad I had the powdered goat's milk on hand. This pandemic is making me learn all sorts of ways to think outside of the box.
