This recipe is from Dan Lepard. The bread doesn’t contain any egg, butter or milk products, but stays soft & moist for days because of the soya protein in the soy milk. You may see Dan’s reply here.
I used King Arthur All Purpose Flour and rye flour from a local shop to prepare the dough. The dough was quite sticky at the beginning, but after using Dan’s first fermentation method, gluten was formed like usual easily. The resulted crumb of the bread was soft but a bit chewy.
I could not taste the soy milk flavor in the bread, and the taste was similar to light wheat bread. There was also linseed in every bite. Crust was a bit thicker than usual. Overall, I like this healthy loaf and will make again. :)

This is the milkiest loaf I ever had. The interesting thing is the dough itself doesn’t contain any milk or milk powder, and is in fact a lean dough instead of an enriched one, making it different from regular loaves. It’s the white chocolate chips which give the strong milk flavor, and I like them not sweet eating with the crumb together at all.
The bread makes great toasts. You could see the chocolate chips have formed little holes inside the bread, and when toasted, the little holes would be caramelized outside but lacy inside, producing two different textures and tastes. The fact is I had three pieces in one time. Yum!
