Sunshine Sunflower Bread Mix

A slightly sweet breakfast bread made with a touch of honey and a pinch of cinnamon.

SKU: M131-1

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?

peach jam

Try Vanilla Peach Cobbler Jam with this bread. It's like spreading peach cobbler on your toast.

You just found your new breakfast bread. It's nutty--loaded with sunflower seeds. It's kissed with cinnamon with a touch of honey. Yet it's not a sweet bread, sweeter than a sandwich loaf but not sweet like banana bread. It's a moist, delicious, and wholesome bread mix.

You'll find sunflower seeds in every bite. The cinnamon tints the bread a warm, light brown color.

"I love sunflower seeds in my bread.  This is loaded. It's a touch sweet with a spot of cinnamon. If you would like a sunflower bread without the sweetness, try Prairie Sunflower Bread."--Dennis


This bread makes fabulous french toast. The sunflower seeds give t texture and character. And a touch of sweet cinnamon is perfect.

This bread also works well with soup. Pictured is a bowl of Southwest Corn Soup.

This is a great bread mix. It works as toast, a buttery cinnamon toast. It works with any jam or honey.

  • "Love this bread. . . . My husband loves it."--Sandra W. Morris
  • "The bread is so full of sunflower seeds, I absolutely love it."--Jennifer Simpson
  • "Soft, delightful crust"--Non Spawr-Seston
  • "Wow! Who knew a touch of cinnamon could make such a difference . . . my new favorite."--Linda Christensen


Try this bread. We guarantee you'll love it.

Bakers note: I've never met a cream cheese spread that I didn't like and I certainly like it on this bread. The trick is to make it smooth, spreadable, and flavorful. Softening your cream cheese in the microwave helps. Granulated sugar tends to cut through the cream cheese, making it softer and easier to spread.

Simple and delicious

I’ve only baked one of the several packages that I ordered. It was delicious, super easy and cost effective. I had planned to use the bread packets as hostess gifts or stocking stuffers, but may just keep them all to myself!!!!

Three loaves of the sunflower bread mixes and my family is always excited when I bake a new loaf. A buttered slice taken on the way out to do chores is better than cookies.
