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
Note: Once the mixes are prepared you’ll need to store them
in a cool, dry, dark place.
Old-Fashioned Central Pennsylvania Potato White Bread Mix
Measure into the quart bag:
2 C. bread flour or all-purpose flour*
2 T. dried milk solids
2 T. instant potato flakes
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
1/4 t. ground turmeric (optional)**
1 T. gluten*
1 1/2 t. salt
1 T. sugar
Stir all of this with spoon or spatula. Or just shake it around to mix. Then add
1 C white flour
*If you are using bread flour, omit the gluten.
**In central Pennsylvania, this is often used to color the bread and leave a
hint of the turmeric flavor.
Write the following on the label: “Put into the bread pan of the bread machine 1
C. water, 1 T. shortening (lard, butter, margarine, oil), then the bread mix;
add 1 1/2 t. yeast and start.” Note: If you have some, potato water would go
nicely in this, instead of water.
