been this price for a little while but good price anyway

Brown and wholemeal own label were £1.15 today in our local ,Tilehurst, ASDA. I was in Morrisons Reading last week and all their own label was £1.44. Hope it's not going to be like petrol and just keep going up and up.

this was posted a few weeks ago, brilliant price compared to the other supermarkets. stock up before it goes up

Just baked my first successful loaf using Allinson flour at 3 times the cost (didn't want to take any chances with my first attempts). Can anyone advise that this flour is as good? Hopefully it is and I can stock up, but if not I won't risk making 'okay' bread just to save 33p a loaf.

If it's proper bread flour it will be fine. Usually if your loaf doesn't rise the problem isn't with the bread flour anyway.

I use this all the time now (one loaf per day) and they turn out just the same as more expensive flour.

To be honest, I always chose Neill's but a few weeks back it went from 92p to £1.28 in all the major supermarkets So I thought I'd try this ASDA brand (shelf sticker said 50p down from 60p).

The only thing I've noticed is that I get a better loaf if I use slightly less yeast and 10ml more water.

brommy - give it a shot - worth at least trying once then all those 33p will add up

For me, costs are:
475g strong bread flour = 50p / 3 (1.5kg give 3 loaves + 75g leftover approx) = 16p
3g yeast (1tsp) = 60p/12 = 5p (Allinsons 6 pack box of 7g yeast - somehow Hovis clumps on me and I get huge holes in the bread)
25g butter = £1/250g = 10p
1tsp salt - neg
1tsp castor sugar - neg
330ml water - free
2 hour fast-bake in the Panasonic = 5.5p (I measured it with a power meter)

= 37p / loaf total.

Same price in Tesco, I have made several now and most failed using my own mix. Don,t know why, i have tried more/less water and diferant programs so it is back to the packets pre mixed for me. My mix is 500 flourr and 300/ 330 ml water along with a sachet of yeast a bit of olive oil, it is very dense and stodgy for what ever the reason , anyone know what i am doing wrong please.

I usually go about 400g of flour with 250-300ml of water, some olive oil, dash of salt and 3/4 packet of yeast. Too much yeast and it'll be all air, a packet of yeast is good for about 700g of flour.

I use a breadmaker to make my dough, i add 250ml of water to start with and watch it as it's mixing and add water if required until the dough is in between dry and sticky, if you know what i mean

I use the 50p Tesco own brand Strong white flour too, with good results.

475g of strong flour, (asda is good) 1 tsp of yeast,( a sachet holds 3 tsp) 25g butter, tsp salt, tsp sugar & 320ml water. any failures i've had over the years can be attributed to using out of date yeast. i use a panasonic bread maker every other day.

Could be your bread maker. Try using your bread maker for the kneading / 1st rising cycle. Then putting on baking trays/loaf tins to rise again then baking in the oven to see if there is a difference.

3g yeast (1tsp) = 60p/12 = 5p (Allinsons 6 pack box of 7g yeast)



If you want to shave a little more of the price pick up a Dove Farm pack of yeast, you can get a 125g packet for around a pound if you can find a stockist.

Thanks all, just checked my yeast and it is near enough 3 teaspoons. I assumed that it was measured for one loaf. Got me a loaf in this morning after following your recipes. Will let you know when i get home if it is o.k

Was your loaf good? Like you, I also assumed (as per intructions) that one sachet is required per large loaf (500g of flour) and my first attempt using a hole sachet was great. However, if I can get two loaves from one sachet it would be good. I don't think I'd risk three loaves from just 7g of yeast though. I don't use a breadmaker but do knead with a dough hook on a mixer.

Right just got home and its a lot better, i used one and a half spoons of yeast 490 grams of flour and 320 of water, no were near as stodgy as before. Thanks to all who advised. Next question can you buy fast bake yeast in a tin?
