Chebe No-frills Mix?

Recommended Posts

I bought some of the Chebe no frills all-purpose mix last week because it was so much cheaper than buying the packaged mixes. It is basically a 20 pound bag of the all-purpose Chebe. Now I am panicking because I am afraid it will not come with instructions on how to measure it out to use it. Nothing like a crapload of Chebe mix and no idea how much it takes to make a batch. :blink:

Has anyone ordered the no-frills mix, and did it come with instructions? I don't know how much (by volume) is in the packages that are individually sized, but they are all around 7.5 ounces or so. Anyone know how many cups of Chebe is in one of them?

Thanks for any help!

Buying Chebe in bulk is a great idea! I didn't know it came that way.

I have several of the plain red Chebe packages on hand but I'm not going to be able to bake until later tonight or maybe tomorrow morning. When I do, I'll measure one of the red packages and post the measurement of mix in the package and the directions.

How are you planning on fixing it?

I made parmesan breadsticks with green chilis and cooked them to a crunchy/chewy texture. YUM!

A red pack of basic Chebe mix contains 2 cups and 1-1/2 Tbsp. of mix. This was measured the way they taught me in Home Ec -- spooning the mix out into the cup measure and leveling off the cup. If you were scooping it out of a bag, it would probably be 2 cups. Basic Chebe is the most forgiving gluten-free bread I've found.

Where did you find Chebe sold in bulk?

I ordered it directly from the Chebe website at http://www.chebe.com/onlineordertable.htm It is so much cheaper than buying the packages and I am such a cheapskate. B)

Thank you so much for measuring that out for me. I can't wait until it gets here to start making me some Chebe! Who know I could get so excited about bread? The recipe you mentioned above sounds great. I may have to try it. I am REALLY craving a soft pretzel right now, and I think Chebe may work for a reasonable facsimile.

Hey, I think that may be new - very cool. Next time, I will just order a few cases and then the bulk of the all-purpose mix (gluten-free/LF)!

I just realized in looking at your link that I measured the red package which has dry milk in it. I have a yellow package of the all-purpose (dairy free) at home that was a freebie from the store where I buy all of my Chebe. I promise I'll make something with it by the weekend and see if the package contains the same measurements. Sorry for the delay, I thought the original was the all purpose. That explains why I couldn't find it, dry milk might go off by the time you used 20 pounds. Although I wonder if the cream of tarter and baking soda will get old like baking powder does? Are you going to store it in the freezer?
