Cheddar Cheese Bread Mix

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

SKU: M65-1

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?

Bread mixes

So lucky to have discovered the prepared pantry. Hands down the best bread mixes I’ve ever tried. The cheese mix is a favorite in our house. Goes great with sausage & cheese instead of crackers. Can’t recommend enough

Great product

Best Bread Machine Bread Kits

We've been buying the Prepared Pantry Bread Machine Kits/Packs for some time now. They have the largest selection of various Breads for our bread machine. Used to get a couple in the chain stores, but the availability and variety are not good. We haven't had a bread we didn't like yet. They are all well packaged, and make the best bread ever. Used to make by hand until I got a Bread Machine for a Christmas Gift. I can say the bread comes out just as great with the bread machine. Certainly faster, and less time consuming. Prepared Pantry has the best breads at great prices. The smell during baking is wonderful....Everyone who visits during our bread making has to get a fresh slice. Nothing like fresh bread baking on a Winter's day, or for that matter, any day !!
