Sour Cream White Gourmet Bread Mix

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

SKU: M05-1

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?

  • Nice bread with lots of sour cream. The sour cream makes it slightly richer, a touch sweeter, and an ivory-white color.
  • Moist and soft with a polished crust
  • Over 1 1/2 pounds

We worked hard to make this fancy bread mix just right. We went through dozens of trials to get the perfect balance of ingredients. Only when our testers said it was perfect, were we satisfied. This is a formal bread for family and friends to make any occasion a special occasion

How to Make French Toast Sticks in Three Easy Steps

dipping French toast sticks made from a white bread machine mix

1. Make a Sandwich

Choose your favorite bread mix and make it according to the instructions on the back of the bread mix package. We like to use sour cream white bread and our buttermilk white bread mix.

Choose your favorite fillings to spread in between slices. It can be as simple as PB&J or stuff them with a dessert filling.

2. Cut It and Dip

Cut the sandwich into sticks and dip it into an egg wash, just like you would with other French toast.

3. Cook The Sticks

Cook your prepared French toast sticks on a griddle, being sure to cook all four sides evenly. They’re done when all sides are golden brown.

Pour the syrup into a small dish or ramekin, and dip your French toast sticks like French fries.

Love your bread mixes

I have ordered bread twice. Every package of bread I have made is delicious. I have enjoyed it so much that I bought my son-in-law a bread machine and ordered bread mixes from the Prepared Pantry to go with it. I will definitely order again.
