Simply Homemade Bread Mixes – Product Review

countrywhiteI got a breadmaker for Christmas, and Mike picked up one of Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade bread mixes at the store.  I thought it was sort of silly, isn’t the whole point of having a bread maker to be able to throw some ingredients together and get great bread?, but after a couple of failures doing exactly that, I decided to try it.  It was delicious!  Seriously, soooo good.

I think I got the Country White, though I threw away the box and the bread was actually sort of brown.  I also cooked it for 3 hours, rather than on a rapid cycle.  You don’t get a particularly large loaf – but if what you want is flavor, this has it.  I think next time I’d select light crust rather than medium, however.

I don’t know how much the package was, my bet is that it’s not cost effective, but if I found them on sale I might buy a couple to keep to make some quick bread without having to put much thought into it.
