White Bread Mix

How to Make a Bread Machine Mix

A supply of quart-size, self-sealing bags and you are ready to start making mixes.

Some stick-on notes or labels or adhesive labels to write instructions on.

Note: Once the mixes are prepared you’ll need to store them in a cool, dry, dark place.

Scrumptious White Bread Mix

Measure into the quart bag:
2 C. bread flour or all-purpose flour*
2 T. dried milk solids
2 T. soy flour (if you don’t have soy flour just use bread flour)
1 T. gluten*
1/2 t. salt
1 T. sugar

*If you are using bread flour, omit the gluten.

Stir all of this with spoon or spatula. Or just shake it around to mix. Then add another:
1 C. white flour

Write the following on the label: “Put into the bread pan of the bread machine 1 C. water (or 1/2 C. water and 1/2 C. milk), 1 T. shortening (lard, butter, margarine, oil), then the bread mix, 1 1/2 t. yeast and start”.

The half water/half milk combination is delicious. You can use all milk for an incredibly super deluxe, rich, chewy soft-crusted loaf. Just plain water will yield a better loaf than the white bread you buy in stores.

The yield should be a 1 1/2 lb loaf of good bread.
