Bread Machine Bread Mix

 I love having foods ready to go, either in my pantry or in my freezer. One of my favorite things is making quick and simple homemade mixes and sticking them on my pantry shelf so when I need to make the item I can just pull out the mix, add the wet ingredients and have something fresh by spending very little time making it!

As part of the new meal plan I not only wanted to do freezer meals but I also wanted to add dry mixes too. One of the mixes I made this week was this mix for bread machine bread. It's so simple to use. All you have to do is add the mix and a few ingredients to the bread machine, push a few buttons and tada! Bread! So easy and very little effort required.

Bread Machine Bread Mix

This mix makes enough for four 2 pound loaves of bread.

What you need:

  • 13 c. bread flour
  • 2 T. salt
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. dry milk

Mix those ingredients together until they are well blended. Pour into 4 quart bags or jars and label Breadmaker Mix. When you are ready to bake add to your bread machine:

  • 1 1/4 c. warm water
  • 1 1/2 T oil
  • 1 jar Breadmaker Mix
  • 2 t. yeast

Put your bread machine on the basic or light setting and let it go!

This is can a very simple way to store "bread" right in your pantry and have a fresh loaf whenever you need one! Even though the bread machine takes a while to mix and bake you still have hardly any work involved for you!

Your recipe says 1 jar Breadmaker Mix, about how many cups is that?

Reply

3 Merissa July 6, 2011 at 6:05 pm

It is 1 quart of mix, which is a little over 3 cups. About 3 1/3 c. of mix.

I’m wondering if it would be ok to freeze this mix…I’m guessing yes…lol

Yep go for it!

This would make a good gift – along the lines of those jarred cookie mixes – only better. Can’t wait to try it tomorrow.

This looks great. Is your setting for 1 1/2 lbs.?

Reply

8 Merissa June 30, 2012 at 3:13 pm

It’s for a 2lb loaf.

Is that 13 cups of flour?

Reply

10 Merissa October 2, 2012 at 6:27 pm

Yes, 13 cups of flour and this recipe will make enough for 4 loaves of bread.

Hmmm. Lets come up with some variations!! What could we add?

Love having it all ready! Thanks

Is dry milk the same as powder milk

Yes :)

Would you have a gluten free option like this for the bread maker?

Reply

15 Merissa March 9, 2013 at 8:20 pm

I don’t yet :(

Reply

16 Sara Ewen November 13, 2013 at 12:26 pm

If your looking for gluten free, the ratio is 40% whole grain and 60% starch. I’ve seen a few recipes for bread. I’m sure they would fit into this pretty easy.

this is brilliant…. pinning .. can’t wait for variations to this.. cinnamon,
cinnamon /raisin… whole wheat…. love love it…

Is bread flour the same as all purpose flour?

Reply

19 Merissa October 17, 2013 at 2:08 pm

No it’s a little bit different, but all purpose flour can be used instead.

20 Judy McDaniel February 14, 2014 at 6:49 am

Whenever I use all-purpose flour, the bread turns out more crumbly in the middle.
I’m thinking of trying this, has anyone else tried it? My usual recipes have the sugar right next to the yeast so the yeast has something to eat as soon as it dissolves.

21 Merissa February 14, 2014 at 6:52 am

I always use all purpose flour in this recipe and it works for me.

22 heather November 13, 2013 at 12:03 pm

What about people like me that do it the old fashioned way, by hand lol, is there a way I can do this?

Reply

23 Sara Ewen November 13, 2013 at 12:18 pm

I like this idea! I think it would work for bread done by hand too. I was thinking earlier that a fresh loaf of bread would be really nice to have on this fridged day. I’m all over this! Thanks for the great idea! Makes a nice gift too, just put a ribbon on the jar.

If you don’t want to add the dry milk, could you just sub milk for the water?

Reply

25 Merissa November 13, 2013 at 4:01 pm

You could just leave it out.

Reply

26 Paulina November 13, 2013 at 1:35 pm

Thank you for this. I struggle so much with making bread. Now this will help me lots. :)

27 Sharyl November 13, 2013 at 1:49 pm

How would I cook this if I don’t have a bread machine?

Reply

28 Merissa November 13, 2013 at 4:00 pm

You would just need to knead it well, let it rise, punch down again and place in bread pans, let it rise for a while longer then back at 350 degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes or until brown on the top and it makes somewhat of a hollow sound when knocked on.

Such a great idea! Does it have to have dry milk in it? My son is allergic to milk. Thanks. :)

You could leave it out.

Could you add the yeast in with the jar mix, instead of having to add it later?

Reply

32 Merissa November 14, 2013 at 1:31 pm

No, because the yeast needs to be added separately and not mixed in with the other ingredients right away.

I have a ninja kitchen system and have never made bread. Do you have any recipes for dinner rolls using the Ninja?

How long can this be stored in pantry?

Reply

35 Merissa November 14, 2013 at 1:32 pm

I would say at least 5 months. If you wanted to store it longer you could put it in a plastic bag instead and stick it in the freezer.

Powdered Milk is hard to find where I live. What would the measurement be for instant powdered milk?

Reply

38 Merissa January 2, 2014 at 7:08 am

It would be the same thing.

39 Debi January 21, 2014 at 11:39 am

Could you use whole wheat flour to make a ww loaf?

Reply

40 Merissa January 21, 2014 at 12:15 pm

Yes you could, or use half wheat and half white :)

Merissa, Just wanted to say thanks for sharing. I mix some up the other day and made a loaf. It was the best tasting bread we have ever had and don’t think we will be buying bread anymore at the store. Thanks again
