Prepared Pantry Italian Country Bread Machine Mix Review
Last Updated on June 4, 2020
The folks at Prepared Pantry sent me their Italian Country Bread Machine Mix to review. We agreed that I’d give them my honest opinion.
Making the Italian Country Bread
I read the instructions on the package. To my surprise, they called for water of exactly 80 degrees to be used in making the bread. I haven’t seen that before.
I use a Zojirushi BBCCX20 machine. The bread cycle includes time for preheating. So I just used water from the tap. If your machine doesn’t have a preheat cycle though, I’d recommend that you follow the directions on the package.
I added the ingredients as recommended by the instructions that came with my Zo, being careful to make a little nest for the yeast.
I chose the basic setting and let the bread machine do its thing.
The Finished Product
This bread was all about texture. It was dense and the crust was chewy.
The taste was mild with just a hint of yeast and a bit of sourdough. I think it’s the perfect bread for sandwiches. It’s strong enough to stand up to big, drippy ingredients. Its subtle flavor means that it won’t fight for attention with the rest of the sandwich.
We really liked this Italian country bread.
