Cranberry Nut Gourmet Bread Mix

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

SKU: M04-1

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?

We eat it for breakfast with a little butter and cinnamon sugar on top, yum!"  -Rhonda Williams


This bread is packed with our super cold-processed cranberries with more juice and fewer sweeteners.

A packet of nuts is included with this mix. Because nuts have a high oil content, they will not last long. Please use it within six months.

"Cranberry Walnut Bread

The cranberry walnut bread is fabulous! Most breads never add the walnuts but these folks do and it's incredible. Moist, tender and filled with delicious cranberries and walnuts." -Beth Robert

This bread mix can be made in your bread machine or baked in your oven. Each package contains one mix. Each mix makes a 1 1/2 pound-sized loaf. SAF Gourmet Yeast packets are included.

If you make this bread in your bread machine, water temperature is critical. Please use a thermometer to measure water at exactly 80 degrees. A ten-degree difference in water temperature can double the growth rate of the yeast. These bread mixes are satisfaction guaranteed when you use a thermometer.

This mix is a country favorite, a yeast bread loaded with walnuts and cranberries. (Each bread mix has about 2/3 cup cranberries and 1/2 cup nuts.) It also has a touch of cinnamon and a hint of orange.

instructions need to be updated

The nuts and cranberries did not fall into the mix, so the bread and cranberries and nuts did not mix. Please include in the instructions to make sure that the nuts and cranberries are pushed down while the bread is mixing.
