Bags of homemade bread mix stored in an airtight container.
My son and I have been take a few minutes after dinner once a month or so to prepare bags of bread mix. This has greatly simplified making bread and has had the added benefit of making it almost impossible to spill any flour outside of the bread pan when putting ingredients in the machine.
Each bag contains:
100 gm whole wheat bread flour 150 gm white bread flour 2 T* brown sugar 1 T milk powder
1 t salt
When it's time to put on some bread, put into the bread machine:
10-15 gm butter
180 ml cold water for regular bread or 170 ml cold water for sandwich bread
1 bag of flour mix
1 t dried yeast
If your machine doesn't have a special place to put the yeast, make a shallow well in the center of the flour and pour the yeast there. The yeast should not touch the water.
The finished product, with added sunflower seeds.
* If you are using Japanese measurements, 1 T is approximately 1 大さじ, 1 t is approximately 1 小さじ.
