Recipe by TishT

This is just an easy way to make an easy loaf of bread. This dough can be used for cinnamon buns, pizza crust, hot pockets, and calzones in addition to bread with a few well chosen additions! This mix make 6 bags for 6 loaves. *Note: There is not cook time as this is just for the mix. Follow your bread machines instructions for cooking times

When I saw this posting I thought...what a great idea..at best I'll have a real time saver and at worst I've wasted maybe 5 bucks. Got my biggest bowl and starting mixing and mixing and mixing and mixing. The only change I made to the recipe was to make the 1 teaspoon of salt 6 teaspoons....cuz the ratio just didn't seem right for six loaves of bread. I stored it all in a big canister in the pantry since we make all our own bread and will use it up fairly quickly. Put the ingredients for the first loaf in the abm and crossed my fingers. Nice bread Tish! It came out very moist and not too fluffy...just the way DH likes his sandwich bread. Nice flavor as well....thanks for sharing!


  1. Mix together the flour, sugar, powdered buttermilk and salt in a large bowl, making sure to mix well.
  2. Measure out 3 1/2 cups of the mixture into quart-size zipper bags. If you have a few Tbs of mix left over after measuring out the 6 bags, just divide it between the bags.
  3. Put the bags of mix in a 2 gallon freezer bag, or into two 1 gallon freezer bags. Seal, label and freeze. Or, put the entire mix in an air-tight rigid container, and store the whole thing in the freezer.
  4. Remove a the bag of mixture from freezer.
  5. Allow it to come to room temperature.
  6. Place the following ingredients in your bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer: 1 Cup warm water, 1 egg, 2 Tbs butter or cooking oil, bread mix, 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast.
  7. Set your bread machine to the appropriate setting and press start. Makes a 1-1/2 pound loaf.
