I purchased this bread mix from my local grocery store. It is priced at $4.89 for a 22 ounce box, and includes a yeast packet.
To make the bread, you need to add water, oil and eggs. I mixed this in my Kitchen Aid mixer with no problems (there is a bread machine version, but I have not tried it yet). Speading the glue-ey mixture into the bread pan took some effort, and puffed up during the 40 minute rise time. After baking, the crust sounds hollow when tapped and is slightly crispy and a beautiful golden brown color.
I found this bread easy to slice both warm and completely cooled, with very little crumbling. The texture isÂ slightly spongy, but thinly slicing the bread helped with this. This bread stored wonderfully in my refrigerator for three days and tasted and sliced like it was fresh. However, beware when freezing- it becomes dry and crumbly. The flavor was mild and balanced, not too “ricey” - just right.
This bread was really good hot out of the oven with butter andÂ jam. It also made wonderful fresh and grilled sandwiches. I will definately buy this mix again!
Pros: easy to mix, stores well, slices nicely, great in sandwiches
Cons: Crust is pretty crispy out of the oven, doesn’t freeze well
