Farmhouse Honey Wheat Bread Mix

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

SKU: M98-1

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?

This is an exceptional wheat bread. Often, wheat bread is coarse and harsh. This is as soft and moist as homemade white bread.

Even the kids will like this honey bread. Give it a try. If it's not the best wheat bread you've tried, we'll give you your money back.

About Honey Bread

You will find five honey breads on our site:

Most, but not all, breads have a sweetener, like honey or sugar, to give the yeast a kick and get it growing. Yeast has the ability to convert starch to sugar but it's quicker to start it with a sweetener. Then, in the right conditions, the number of yeast spores doubles every ten to fifteen minutes.

Yeast is sensitive to temperature. It works best at 79 degrees. That's why we specify 80 degrees and ask you to use a thermometer. Salt, acid, and some spices will impede the growth of yeast and sometimes kill it.

Honey is a powerful sweetener, fructose instead of sucrose.  And we taste it differently; the taste lingers in the mouth longer. It's sweeter.

And honey is hygroscopic. Instead of drying out, honey draws moisture from the air. So, honey bread stays moister longer.  There's not a lot of honey in the bread so the difference is subtle. But honey bread is different.

Honey wheat bread mix

I made this bread mix on a night when my whole family was coming to dinner. The taste was just right. Not to sweet but you could taste a bit of honey. It was a huge hit and there were no leftovers. Will purchase again.
