Good spot.

I see they have the Allinson Very Strong Bread Flour at 1.19p for 1.5k - another good price.

Stock up on this, once food inflation gathers momentum we'll all be baking our own bread again. The flour weevils will be a free bit of extra protein too. :0

Three good sized loafs.

Excellent find, makes it cheaper than their own brand and not much more than the strong bread flour in Lidl/Aldi.

If you bake bread a lot than I can strongly recommend this company. lovely organic flour

Strong organic white - http://www.shipton-mill.com/flour-direct/traditional-organic-white-704.htm

Organic Malthouse (lovely for a granary type loaf) - http://www.shipton-mill.com/flour-direct/organic-light-malthouse-flour-301.htm

I think free shipping over £30

As someone who bakes a lot, I find this and the other Allinson flours to be very very starchy and you end up with a very sticky dough that doesn't rise very well. Personally I stick to Sainsburys own label (the TTD ones are paricularly good), Dove Farm (can be a bit pricey though) and occasionally the Waitrose ones if they're on offer. Tesco's own brand ones tend to perform in a very similar way to the Allinson products so I wonder if they make them on their behalf.

In terms of how much you could make, obviously depends on the size of your loaves, but I usually use 500g flour to produce 2 medium size loaves by hand. The same amount is normally roughly what you use in a machine for a single large loaf.

I haven't used Allinson's bread flour but always use Lidl's Belbake strong wholemeal and white bread flour (75p for 1.5 kg per pack) to make my own version of 50/50 bread with added olives and sundried tomatoes and they are great. Heat for the price of branded flour but I think Lidl's ones are the best value.

I've done technical quality tests on Lidl's strong flour too - it's at least as good as the brands. I don't buy anything else!

Ditto on the Lidl (also Aldi) bread flour. Always get great results with it (unlike Tesco's stuff which I've had a number of failures with). Can recommend their yeast too. I find Home Bargains is the cheapest source of sunflower, pumpkin & quinoa seeds just in case anyone's interested.

Nothing like a pumpkin seed loaf. It's what I bake regularly, so addictive.

Used this for pizza dough. And gave good results.

I usually buy mine in 1kg bulk bags off eBay.

I have in the past bought big bags of seeds from Ebay, especially caraway seeds which aren't that easy to find in the supermarkets or my local 'ethnic' shop. However they do tend to hang around for a long time. I bought a 400 g pack of caraway seeds that I bought in June 2015 which I've almost got the end of now!

Regarding sunflower seeds specifically, about six months ago I found you could get 250 g bags for 69p from Home Bargains. That's £2.76/kg and that's very low, even by EBay's standards. I bought several packs and am still working through them.

Funny enough I bought caraway seeds from eBay for the same reason too, all I could get were the Schwartz jars. At the same time the penny suddenly dropped that buying the small 100g packets of sunflower and pumpkin seeds wasn't probably the cheapest way either! That is a good price for sunflower seeds, I paid £6 for a kilo from eBay last time and about the same for pumkin seeds too I think.
