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.
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
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.
