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 youll 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 dont 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.
