Sticky buns - egg free?


I love your recipes, but am wondering if anyone has tried making the sticky buns (no knead) egg free? My son has severe allergies to dairy and egg and usually I try the substitutes I know, but didn't want to have to reinvent the wheel if someone else has already tried it. Thanks!!! :-)

Here is a somewhat non-traditional Orange Sticky Bun that Dachshundlady posted some time ago. These buns were very popular with the folks on the OBC. You will need to replace the buttermilk with almond milk or some other non-dairy milk. I would recommend Fleischman's Unsalted Margarine as a replacement for the butter. Jan

You can make any bread dough recipe egg free and dairy free, as long as you understand they won't taste like the original.

Use the stated volume of honey in place of sugar, and add 1/4 cup instant mashed potato flakes to retain moisture in the dough. Add them both to the liquid that you warmed to 90F in the microwave. Use almond milk 1:1 in place of cow milk. To use coconut milk, dilute the canned "lite" 1+1 with water. You can use the same amount of oil instead of the butter/margarine.

Make sure to use unbleached bread flour, and the no-knead is a very good method. Use active dry yeast--NO instant type. Punch the dough down completely before shaping it.

When you bake, take care to not dry out the buns. Cover them loosely with foil after the first 10 mins of baking. These will stay fresh for the same 2-3 days as the egg/milk doughs.
