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?

    Haven’t tried. So far the 3 I’ve made turned out great.

    Leslie Stillwagon

    All the breads I’ve tried were delicious will be buying again soon

    Takes me way back, yummm

    We love this white bread, really love it. It's that slight tang it gives that makes you go Ooooo. When I made this the first time, the feel and texture took me back to my childhood when we'd wait for the breadman to deliver just-made bread from his truck. Everyone was ready and almost drooling. Perfect...and so was this. Since that first order, I've ordered and made it many times and it's always consistently perfect and you will always hear Ooooooo.


    Always love quality and specials

    Buttermilk White - Superb!

    We used Tangzhong method with the Zojrushi Bread Machine on Basic course - bread came out perfect!
    Trying other mixes did provide some insight - this bread will mold pretty fast without all the garbage of the store bought. We don't eat bread very day, so a 2 lb. loaf lasts for about a week. The Tangzhong method enables the bread to last much longer - stays fresh and soft, but does not mold quickly.
    Thank you very much!
