The Prepared Pantry

Buttermilk White Bread Mix

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

SKU: M11-1

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.

    This bread is better than you can buy, much better. It's freshly baked in your kitchen and just tastes better.

    "Superb! . . . is far better than any white bread, artisan or machine-made, that I could buy. The flavor is outstanding and the crumb is spot-on tender with a great chewy crust. I love it! . . . I'm hooked!"  JennyDinVa 

    "I love the texture of the bread. Reminds me of my mother’s bread growing up. The flavor can’t be beat. Soft and delicious!"  
    Mary Annette Summers 

    "Prepared Pantry is the only bread mix I've found, after years of trying numerous brands, that creates consistently delicious loaves in my bread machine."  Jeff Swiatek 

    "Can't find any others that can compete with your products!" Gary Bohn

    This is a wholesome, homemade bread like your grandmother might have made. Homemade is always better than store-bought.

    "This bread reminded me of 'home' when my Mom made homemade bread each week . . .  we didn't really have supper last night, it was just hot bread and butter and we were totally satisfied. Very impressed with flavor and texture!!!"  Diane Calkins

    This is a happy bread. If you and your family are not happy, we will give you your money back.

    Try it. It's better bread.

    "What did I ever do before Prepared Pantry?? Love the products."  Barbara Simmons

    Good Favor and great price.

    The loaf came out smaller than Country White but it was perfect for the two of us. Worked great in the bread machine and I will buy again.

    It was good but not our favorite. I would still buy it again though.

    Good bread

    I can’t eat it but the friends I’ve given it to have been very happy with it.

    Never Disappoints!

    We love ALL the Prepared Pantry breads and this is no exception! My husband always says ummm fresh bread again. I use my bread machine and it comes out perfect every time. Warm and fresh is the best but we love it later with cheese or just butter. It’s awesome toasted and as a sandwich. Good job with this one!
