Great price, but the only loaf I made from it so far wasn't good. Actually got one cooking now, hope it'll be better.
#2
this is a great mix at a great price - like all bread though - you have to make sure you knead it for at least 15-20 mins, if you want good bread.

Is that the secret of it? We also could not get well raised bread first time.

Great deal for those who "knead" it................


















I'll get my coat :oops::oops::oops:

Mine's done and it's not good. I use a machine though (Panasonic). Other brands were way better.

Probably worth it if you're baking by hand?

Why did the baker have brown hands?













Because he kneaded a poo.

These mixes are fantastic. I have a cupboard full to save almost a quid on a loaf of bread.

I use them in the Panasonic as well and use slightly (20ml) less water than recommended. This prevents the proving dough from jumping too much and hitting the top of the lid, causing the dough to collapse before baking. I am sure Hovis are selling these off cheap at the mo due to others finding the quoted ingredients don't quite work. Give my tip a try and if it works, fill your boots (just not in my Tescos):thumbsup:

I have only tried the white version of this with my Panasonic machine and both times i`ve not been impressed to be honest.

Works really well for me in a breadmaker. But I use the amount of water suggested for hand baking (300ml) not the amount suggested for a machine.
#11
Got a cupboard full and works on fast setting too. 27p for a loaf..not bad at all!
#12
i make the crusty white farmhouse loaf a few times a month, as long as you keep the dough warm it will help with the rising, i use warm water to start with then put it on the top of the stove near the back with a teatowel over while the oven is warming up works every time, i hardly use my breadmaker anymore, i also make ny own bread from scratch using the same method.
#13
Definitely hot - these were on offer a month or so back and I bought quite a few - must admit I've really enjoyed the loaf's both from the bread machine and one made by hand. :)
#14
Have tried this mix once or twice with my Panasonic breadmaker. I have to say, this ready mae stuff doesn't work as well as when I make a loaf with separate ingredients (also using Hovis granary flour). But might try it at this price and use less water as suggested (thanks for the tip)

yes well you need to knead it for as long as possible- and then to make sure it rises you have to leave it under a damp cloth for at least an hour. - oh and dont forget to use warm water to activate the yeast.

Also the bread to flour mix is not an exact science and you sometimes need to add a bit extra flour or water to get the consistency right.

I hope it works out well for you eventually - it is something that needs to be learned rather than just like an angel delight mix or something.

good luck - it is worth it!
#16
non in sheffield but still a hot deal!!
#17
i only use my bread machine to make the dough. each time i made it bake the loaf it just makes a brick. ood find thouh, makes nice bread as i've had these packets before.

Pour mix and water in bowl...
Use hand mixer with dough hooks for ten minutes...
Shape dough and put in tin....
Cover for 1 1/2 to 2 hrs...
Pre heat oven..then pop in for 30 minutes.

The secret is not to bother with kneading as the extended mixing time activates the yeast perfectly.
The result is super light, large! , soft bread.:thumbsup:

By the way since Asda stopped selling this mix cheap the shelves at Tesco are empty almost every day.:)

Superb :giggle:

Those with the Panasonic machines ...what setting are you using to make this? As I've used this mix twice with perfect results. The rapid bake setting is not recommended for this mix.
#21
Ahh, I'd used 350ml water. Comes out real wet, though the edges are nice. Middle's soggy and thick.

Will try with 300ml next time, thanks for the tip ;-)
#22
Does this have yeast in it also?

Everything is included aside from the water.
#24
I use this in a bread machine and love it - use exactly according to instructions.

I've used it loads in my Panasonic with great results every time. I use 10ml less water than the instructions say, and put it in on quick-bake white with the size set to large loaf (medium doesn't always seem to mix it perfectly)
