Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade – product review


Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Bread Mix review


Yeast bread ready in 1 hour.  No kneading.  It sounded too good to be true.  But Fleishmenn’s has developed a bread kit that delivers.  Fleishman’s Bread in One Hour line of bread making mixes will make having homemade just out of the oven bread a reality.  

The kit contains the yeast packet, sugar packet and flour mix.  All I had to add was 1 cup of hot water and 1 tsp of flour.  The instructions were quite easy, just detailed enough.  Basically, mix yeast, sugar and water, wait 2 minutes, mix in flour and let rest.  Bake for 25 minutes and you have hot, fresh bread.

We love bread and who doesn’t like hot fresh homemade bread, but who has the time?  I am always frustrated making bread because it needs tending, somewhat like a baby.  You have to keep coming back every 20-30 minutes and do something to it:  punch down, let rise, punch down, let rise, etc.  I often get distracted or just forget and then… But with the Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade mix, there are just 3 steps, so it is easy to complete while I am prepping the rest of dinner.

Overall, it is a win-win:  easy to prepare and finished when the rest of dinner is ready to be served.  I could make bread a lot more with this mix.  And there are other alternatives too.  Hannah made apple cinnamon rolls with the dough by rolling into a rectangle, topping with chopped apple, cinnamon, and sugar, rolling, cutting and baking.  Yummy!  There are also add in suggestions on each package to jazz up dinner.  The loaf size is good for family of 4, but I would need to use 2 packages when everyone is home. 

Check your local store for the Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade bread mixes and let me know how you like it.

    I was very disappointed in this mix. I made it last night for c ompany we were having and don’t know if the product was old but the yeast didn’t cook and was like a rock and smelled like old mix. We were very disappointed, I followed the instructions and I have made a lot of thing during the years but this was awful. Will never buy this product again

      WOW, so sorry your bread did not turn out. If the yeast was too old, it may not have worked. The biggest mistake most people make with yeast bread is the water temp when mixing with the yeast. Did you use a thermometer? I always temp my water. Hope it works better next time.
