it’s because the manufacturers are struggling to produce the smaller bags , there has never been a flour shortage , just a shortage of smaller pack sizes

A freezer full of flour, or miss out on a great deal, what’s the lesser of two weevils?
Asda started selling 1kg packs (in plain plastic bags) from their bakery. at 60p each hope that helps someone.

and the yeast!

Yeast is in Morrisons but you have to ask at the bakery. At least thst's the case in my local branch.

I've not noticed any shortage of eggs around our way. Haven't seen yeast since March though.

Try making a sourdough starter - no yeast needed then. 🏻

Came to mind when I seen this "catch me if you can, I'm the ginger bread man". Would love to bake but too busy

I weighed up asking the bakers yesterday and decided against it
There were 16kg bags at Tesco on Saturday for £14 (Allisons). Similarly, 16kg at Costco for £9, so this is a very good deal.

The neighbours (for whom I am doing shopping) wanted self raising which I managed to find after a few weeks trying. I was told by one of the Tesco staff shoppers that they start picking at 2am, which is why there is usually none left on the shelf by the time that the store opens.

I have found that, only ever needed small bag even before. They would charge more I would think, but I only do a very small bake at a time for just one. time
I bought a large bag, just sat in the cupboard went out of date.

If there's no self-raising, get plain and baking powder, if it's available.

Yes, that's what I would have done but they didn't want to do that for some reason (even offered them our baking powder!).
All flour contains weevil eggs. If you don't use it quickly enough they hatch and you have a cupboard full of weevils. Putting flour in the freezer stops them. Good luck with a 10kg bag though!

They should have that as a sign in the bakery aisle. Don't think there would be a shortage anymore!

Morrisonswere doing the same on Saturday, also 60p per kilo.
Sorry meant to vote hot 🔥 . Don't drive so can't partake in the deal though.
Finally Aldi got some flour in stock!

I keep my flour in sealed airtight plastic bags and have never had a problem with flour that's well out of date containing weevils.

But, again, this isn't easy with a 10kg bag...
Why did the bakers hands smell? Because he kneaded a poo.

They're inside already and that won't stop them. You must buy very fresh flour and/or use it quickly. They aren't easy to see either so you may have missed some.

Last week I finally finished a 1kg bag of flour I bought back in 2013. I always check carefully for weevils and never slotted any.

Typical that I need a new packet when there's a shortage!

not in our local yesterday
Weevils are usually more of a problem in wholemeal or brown flour, with white flour its quite uncommon to find them. Don't quote me, but I think it is something to do with the extra nutrients etc that is left in the wholemeal which causes them to come alive. Even then its mostly old flour that's been stored badly that you find them in the numbers that causes you to dispose of it.

Anyhow, many people could do with the extra protein in their bread or other baked goods these days, amiright!??!?
You can freeze flour to make it last indefinitely.

Turn plain flour into self raising by adding 1 level teaspoon of baking powder to every 150g of Plain flour
I am always using out of date flour as I go through bursts of baking. Never had a problem with weevils. Or maybe I have just eaten lots of weevil eggs!
Tesco also gave me free (fresh) yeast from their bakery last week as they had no dried yeast on the shelves.
Dance on the flour babe..
For when you want to bake a cake for the green giant
