I am in the process of learning to bake breads however many recipes call for dry milk powder. I use rice milk in place of any milks but I have no idea what I could substitute for the dry milk powder. Help, help, help !

According to my baking manual from school, dry milk powder is used specifically to add flavor and fat, so I would guess that if you bump up the fat just a little, you may be able to get away with subsituting with plain rice flour.
BUT, here is a more concrete suggestion.... it comes right out of one of Bette Hagmans baking books.
I used to call for nonfat, noninstant milk powder in my recipes until some readers complained thet they were sensitive to so much milk powder.
For the lactose intolerant, substitue either Lacto-Free, Tofu White (both contain soy), or NutQuick (made from almonds), or almond meal for the dairy milk powder. Another choice could be one of the powdered baby formulas from the supermarket or drugstore: some are soy based others are corn based.
Hope this is helpful!

Be careful that the rice milk you use doesn't use barley in the manufacturing process!!
I believe Rice Dream does....
Just another thing to check!
I've used coconut milk in place of milk before, and it worked great.
Just another idea.
