Buttermilk Wheat Bread Mix

Make this with your bread machine, stand-type mixer, or by hand.

SKU: M54-1

Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?

  • Now lighter and fluffier than ever. The lightest, fluffiest, softest wheat bread on the planet.
  • More dairy. Loaded with buttermilk to sweeten the bread and give it the rich taste of buttermilk.
  • Even the kids love this bread.


This bread is spectacular! It is the tallest, lightest wheat bread we have. It's seven inches tall in a standard bread loaf pan. It fills up the space with a light, soft bread. 

And it tastes great.  Dairy always makes bread taste better, and this is loaded with sweet buttermilk. You get a little buttermilk tang, but dairy is always loaded with lactose, a sugar.  It tastes better. Even the kids will love it.

"This bread pleasantly surprised both myself and my husband. We are always leary of wheat bread mixes as we have had too many that were disappointing. This bread was FAR from disappointing!! We both loved the little bit of sweetness you can taste in the bread. By far the BEST wheat bread we have ever tasted. You will NOT be disappointed."  Lorinda

"One of the best. Delicious. Excellent texture. A touch of sweetness. Perfect for sandwiches."  Linda Richards

"Love this bread! I made this bread dough in my bread machine with the dough setting, then baked it in the oven. It turned out perfect with a texture that both children and adults loved! It’s a hearty texture, but not too heavy. It makes perfect toast!  Katie F.

This bread is as soft and moist as homemade white bread. Make your family a light, fluffy bread with the goodness of stone-ground whole wheat flour and buttermilk.

Best ever!

The Buttermilk Wheat Bread Mix is my absolute favorite. I do add about 2T more water than the instructions call for and it always comes out perfect! It has a mild flavor and soft texture so makes the best sandwiches. I love it!

I did this with spinach and feta in the center (leftovers)... the bread is super soft, one of the best breads ever. I'm having problems sharing!
