SKU: M97-1

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?


Life's too short not to explore the wonderful world of breads!

Potatoes grow well in a cool climate and in well-drained soils. They are particularly well suited to Ireland where ingenious cooks incorporate potatoes into everything from breads to soups. Potatoes add a mild, tangy flavor to bread, almost like sourdough. Potatoes also keep the bread moist and soft.

This Irish bread, from the Summerhill region of Meath, is made with plenty of potato flour and stone-ground whole wheat. It is particularly moist and flavorful, especially for a whole wheat bread. It has a very smooth texture. This is a great, healthy bread to serve your family.

  • Makes a 1 1/2 pound sized loaf
  • SAF gourmet yeast packet inside.
  • Directions and tips for perfect bread are included. You can make this bread in your bread machine, by hand, or with a stand-type mixer.
  • This is a very versatile everyday bread. The oats make this a little moister and a little chewier than other breads.
