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?


This is our best sourdough bread made with wholesome grains: rolled oats, rye, barley, and wheat.

European sourdough is a little different flavor than San Francisco sourdough--a very nice flavorthat's deep and complex.

If you like sourdough bread, this is a wonderful choice. It's a milder sourdough with a chewy crust, a wonderful split-top bread. The secret is the four wholesome rolled grains (wheat, oats, rye, and barley) plus a generous helping of sunflower seeds. Because the grains are rolled, not chopped, they blend into the bread for a smooth, soft texture. (Your kids or grandkids won't know that all those good grains are in there.) But you'll get a wonderful sourdough bread that is restaurant quality and very good for you.

This is a healthy choice with four whole grains and sunflower seeds. There are no preservatives.

  • A great bread for toast and sandwiches.
  • A soft, moist bread that your family will love.
  • Each package contains one bread mix that makes a two-pound loaf.
  • Use a thermometer to check water temperature and we guarantee your bread will work.

Don't miss this great bread.

It came out dense and small. Very disappointing!

I have made this bread in my bread machine twice. The first time I used the medium crust setting and the bread came out dense and small. I contacted customer service by email twice to see if I could swap out the mix for a different one and got no response. So I tried again with the second mix on a light crust setting. I got the same results and the bread was slightly doughy. I will never order this mix again. Ver disappointing experience!

I bought 10 different mixes and have baked 3, Cranberry Nut, Cracked Wheat and the Sourdough mixes. I love the ease of using the mixes in my bread machine without compromising the taste. I am 80 years old and hadn’t made bread for over 40 years but I’m hooked now with your mixes

The best

Always love the different breads. I have tried almost all of them and can’t decide a favorite.
