Heritage Wheat Bread Mix

This is a very soft wheat bread with a fine crumb.

SKU: M62-1

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 customerservice@preparedpantry.com. 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?

  • What makes this bread better than other wheat breads? It's a good recipe with better ingredients.  The flour is milled by General Mills in Montana. We're 93 miles from the Montana border. 
  • What else? Potato flour and milk.  It costs more to make bread with potato flour and milk, but it sure makes better bread. The lactose in the milk makes the bread softer and sweeter. But the potato flour makes a real difference.  Potato flour is hygroscopic. Instead of drying out like wheat flour it acts like a sponge and draws moisture from the air--not much but enough to make the crumb softer and moister. It's just a more pleasant bread.
  • Anything else? It's fresher. Flour is packaged in paper bags. We get our flour weekly. Then we get it out of the paper and into the mixes and Mylar bags right away. That helps.
  • What else makes this bread different?  The preservatives. We hate preservatives. So, we don't use any. It's a healthier product.
  • Well, how long will my bread last? The mix will last a long time. Most mixes will last a year or more. Once baked, use it in four or five days.  If you need it to last longer than that, freeze part of your loaf.

This is not your ordinary whole wheat bread, it's made with potato flour and lots of sweet milk. The potato flour gives it just a hint of rustic flavor, almost sourdough. And the milk is a sweetener--lactose--and the combination is delightful. Potato flour is hygroscopic, that is, it absorbs moisture from the air instead of drying out as wheat flour does. It stays fresher, longer.

The result is a tempting loaf that is tender and moist with the nutty taste of fresh ground wheat. It's better tasting than other whole wheat breads.

Disappointed

This bread was very bland and had the same texture of store bought bread. I do not recommend nor will I purchase again. It has been a couple of years or more since purchasing mixes here and so far they have been more the texture of store bought bread will little flavor. I hope I can find some good hearty bread mixes of the past here as they were very good. Just haven't made the connection yet so will try some different ones. My favorites have always been the honey oat and honey wheat mixes... In fact I think an error was made in filling this first order as normally I would not have ordered 2 of these breads... But awaiting my last order anxiously for oat, and a couple of raisin mixes.

Was disappointed in the mix

Did not have the flavor I was expecting. I am not a regular wheat bread person.
