Funny how you couldn't get hold of the stuff some weeks ago, now they …Funny how you couldn't get hold of the stuff some weeks ago, now they can't seem to give it away.


Let me educate you. Flour producers and packagers have refused to adjust their production lines.

The factories are setup to produce the same amount of residential bags (the small ones) and the same amount of industrial/catering bags.
Because the catering sizes are not needed due to restaurants being closed they have thousands of these catering bags waiting to be bought.
Demand for residential bags has been excessive.
Because this demand is temporary, and the fact it would costs 10s of £££ thousands, they have refused to adjust production lines.

I repeat, the demand is temporary - this is due to the fact that as soon as july/august hits, and nearly all shops/restaurants etc are opened - people will buy less residential and numbers will return to normal.

So no - its not funny as you put it - its economical.

It's been this price here for this size for over a month
Morrisons Bakery section will give you 1Kg Bags if you ask them at 60p / Kg
Hmmm.. not much you can do with plain flour. Can't make bread. Can't make cake. Pastry yes but too many pies will make you obese & then CV will do you in!

Do they still have The Dirty Duck pub in Walsall???

Have you tried to buy baking powder recently? Nothing in Lidl, Aldi or Tesco.

Edit: Yes on Amazon but I refuse point blank to pay a fiver for baking powder!

Ah yeah good point, luckily I had a full large one anyway so haven't had to think about that. Vanilla extract I had to go to Amazon for eventually though

Did you read the link?

"Customers can pay 60p for a 1kg bag of white bread flour, wholemeal bread flour, plain flour, or self raising flour and just £9 for a huge 16kg bag of white bread flour, plain flour or self raising flour. A 50g bag of bakery yeast is also available for 20p."

No but more importantly, does the The Dirty Duck pub still exist in Walsall (on the corner, bottom of the hill just before the Co-op on the left). Used to drink a cheap but vile concoction called Barley Wine there in the early '70s.

Morrisons has always sold 4x42g packs of fresh yeast for a pittance in the yoghurt/butter aisle. Been in plentiful supply too, I suspect people don't want to attempt using fresh yeast over dried yeast or don't know it is there.

Apparently, flour has been high on the list for stockpilers.
In Australia (and probably similar in the UK), they sold 1 year's worth of flour, in 9 days!
I have no idea what the obsession is with flour, but at least it's a food item...unlike toilet rolls.

my local morrisons has a bakery that is fully operational and they haven't been doing this. same with my local asda.


Plain flour does make lovely bread. Makes great baguettes using sourdough.
my mate Pablo's got lots of the stuff!40935023-4JaZU.jpg

Sauces, flat breads, biscuits, shortbread, etc all use plain flour.

Are you for real? There are loads of things that can be made with plain flour, or add a bit of baking powder and there are even more things that can be made!

My local Lidl and Tesco have. Didn't look in Aldi. Got mine from Asda so it's definitely out there and Amazon seems to have plenty. If you can't find any locally, you can get 100g for £2 delivered or 200g for £2.79 on eBay

Organic stoneground flour is recommended for sourdough.

Most Artisan bakers, ideally you want a flour with 12-14% protein, being stone ground also means there is more natural yeast to keep your mother and subsequent levian active. Honestly just try it. Look up the group lovingly artisan on Facebook, it's ran by an award winning baker.
