now and then, i try store-bought mixes. i feel the need to report on this one, because it was extremely tasty. many of the store-bought bread mixes are very limited in their flavor profiles, and include many unnecessary ingredients. i try to stay away from processed foods, and pre-packaged mixes for the most part.
Hodgson mill products are non-GMO, organic, kosher, whole grain, and gluten-free. these products come from a family company that has grown to become a national leader in whole grain products. they offer seven pre-mixed and pre-measured bread mixes that can be prepared in a bread machine, which i used, or baked traditionally in the oven.
the company is on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. they offer a blog, catalog, and email newsletter. if you are not familiar with their products, i highly recommend giving them a try. i found this bread to be delicious. using my Cuisinart bread maker on the packaged mix setting resulted in a perfectly baked product.
the Hodgson mill newsletter is filled with recipes using their products, many of which look so inviting. they have a german chocolate whoopie pie recipe listed, which is gluten-free, for those on that special diet.
