Pumpkin Walnut Bread Mix

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

SKU: M101-1

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?


You've never tasted a bread like this before!

I love breads. I really love pumpkin walnut bread!

This is not a sweet bread--like banana bread. It's a yeast bread. I love it just the way it is.

You can do everything with it. It makes fabulous French toast. You can make dinner rolls. If you really want to delight your family, make cinnamon rolls. Or make a simple loaf and a cream cheese spread flavored with your family's favorite jam.

That's hero stuff.

  • This package contains one bread mix to make a large loaf of nearly two pounds.
  • An SAF yeast packet is enclosed. You provide only water and melted butter.
  • Directions are included.
  • Can be baked in a bread machine or in the oven.

Baker's Notes

This bread works fine in a bread machine but we've usually made it in the oven. If you let it rise, it will make an enormous loaf.

The round loaves were made in 9-inch cake pans. The sweet rolls were made with apple filling and a cream cheese frosting. They are incredibly good!

Pumpkin Walnut Bread

I love pumpkin anything. This bread had hints of molasses and brown sugar with my favorite fall spices: cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. It baked beautifully in my bread machine. Will definitely bake more of this bread. Loved the slice with whipped cream cheese.
