Bread Flour

I've just made a loaf with Allinson flour (new pack), because Thistledo had me concerned, and it turned out perfectly.

Please don't be concerned Essex Girl. I just wanted to put the warning out in case your bread didn't turn out as you would expect. All the information I received was from my breadmaker manufacturer. It's about being aware. Actually, I'm still using the Allinsons flour that I have in stock and on Rapid Bake and it's fine.

Flour?

As a matter of interest, I use Allinson' s flour most of the time for my bread whether it is made in my Panasonic breadmaker or when I make sourdough bread by hand and it always has worked out fine, so far.

Bread flour

I don't think we ever had a problem using good quality branded flours like Alinson's. It's just that we found we liked the Letheringsett (which btw is milled on a water mill in North Norfolk) range of flours (which incidentally, not that I've had much joy with it includes spelt) better.

I think from my perspective, the only thing I'd suggest is that if you have a mill in your area that you give their flour a try. You may not find it better but perhaps,like us, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Spelt flour


" not that I've had much joy with it includes spelt) better."
I've had good results with Sharpham Mill's spelt flour.

If only we did have a mill in our area! Remember well buying freshly milled flour at Dunster - amazing.

Cheese and oat loaf

Thistledo, I made the loaf it was excellent. It was very savoury, had it with home made soup, and some nice cheeses and the last few slices were toasted. Will make it again. Thanks again for the recipe:o)

Violet Eyes, you are more than welcome. Now I feel good that I've done something right!
Bet your loaf didn't last long, eh?

Hi Thistledo
I made the loaf too, and really liked it. I did my own variation, using what I had to hand. No bread flour, so used a multi-grain bread mix (Laucke make) instead.
Very tasty and good texture too.

"Now I feel good that I've done something right!"

Don't worry if you did something a bit wrong - everyone does at some stage and it's great to see a new poster coming on here regularly :)

breadmakers and Rye bread

Does anyone make Rye bread in their machine? I've never tasted it so don't know what it's like, is it nice or something that will take time to get used to. I was looking through the recipe book and thought I'd give it a try. Is the flour easy to get?

Rye bread

I have not made Rye bread in my breadmaker, a Panasonic, but I have used Rye flour to add to other doughs which I make into sourdough bread. I don't know whether I would like a loaf made entirely of rye flour, but it makes a nice loaf added to other flours, more flavoursome. It is easy enough to find, I get mine in Asda and I'm sure Sainsbury's will stock it also.

Rye bread

Thanks for the reply Nenna.
Just looked at the recipes and there is a rye and white and rye and wholemeal so I will try one of those. I hope I can get the flour at our local Co-op I will try there first.
I think I may have to give up on Granary type flours, made a lovely one the other day the Malted Brown Loaf from the book but took a bite and thought I'd broken a tooth the pain was awful it lasted a day. I hadn't it's just sensitive teeth playing up.

I suppose I should be thankful I've still got them all :o)
