Loretta SorensenBread mixes can be so handy when you’re in a hurry, which seems like a daily condition in my household!

But commercial mixes aren’t always easy to find, and some are plenty expensive. If you’re trying to bake bread to save money, commercial mixes may not help you reach that goal.

So, here’s how to make your own!

Creating your own bread mix will take some time. However, you’ll be able to schedule this activity at a time when it’s most convenient. If you organize it a bit like an assembly line, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you can make bread mixes that suit your personal bread baking goals and put less strain on your grocery budget.

Commercial bread mixes are likely to have some things your home-made mixes don’t: artificial color, preservatives, and highly processed flour(s). However, you aren’t going to miss any of these ingredients when you prepare your own mixes.

To begin, select the bread recipe(s) you want to use. Make sure you have all the recipe ingredients on hand (dry and wet) so you’ll be able to stir up your mix when the time comes.
