Great til you find you can't buy any yeast at the supermarket.



(I've already got a breadmaker)
Lidl regularly has yeast, strong bread flour and bread mixes in stock.
Plenty of alternative recipes that don't use yeast too.
It won’t let me buy
Decent find, heat added
Ok - I’ve sorted it - was payment issue - I obviously checked out way too fast haha - excited!

Or alternatively purchase some from my ebay store
Got 16kg bags of bread flour from a farm shop and some from a mill at the start of lockdown. Catering businesses were selling 500g packs of yeast on Facebook marketplace for about £6-£8 on average when I got some.

Your branch might, don;t think I've ever seen yeast at my local Lidl even before lockdown.
Never seen in my local supermarket eg Sainsburys since lockdown.
Yes you can get it on E Bay and other online sources for an extortionate price.

Try local grocery shops for yeast, my local Turkish ones had some at a slightly higher price
Morrisons bakery will give you a block of live yeast which you can freeze too. Just ask.
Hasn’t been any issue with yeast/flour etc for the last 4/5 weeks where I live. Almost like the madness stopped overnight
never been one for bread maker as can get loaf for 50p but you no homade bread,do I just throw everything in it and it cooks wat do I need
Yikes that RRP is a lie according to Keepa's data.

Yeah, you just put the ingredients in, press a few buttons and wait for the bread maker to work its magic. It's too easy. You would need bread flour, sugar, salt, butter or oil, water and yeast. They are the basic ingredients you need to bake bread. You can then add any extras to make fancier bread etc. You can use breadmakers to make dough too for pizza, bread rolls, croissants etc etc. You can also use some bread makers to make jam. Get one.

I looked at the manual and it calls for milk for sandwich bread or dried milk for normal loaf, is yeast cheap and I noticed it 600 watt is that for the full 3 Hours or just baking
also why is the water measurent in gram

I've made bread with and without milk. It isn't a necessity. I mainly make it without and use water instead. Try it both ways.

You can buy a tin of Allinson Easy Bake Yeast for £1 from most supermarkets. You get at least 14 loaves out of it (usually quite a bit more). Buy the tin instead of the sachets and keep them in the fridge after opening.

I don't know what the watts corresponds to. I'm not that technical.

Not sure why the water measurement is in grams. It must be the Russell Hobbs way. My Panasonic manual states water in ML. You can try the manual recipes that come with it at first, then try bread making recipes from other places once you get used to it.
Pricklerickle19/06/2020 01:38

1g if water has a volume of 1mL, most bread recipes require around 300mL of water.
Amazing price in these Covid times, used ones were going for £100 plus on the bay.

Covid also forced me to get a bread maker and start baking, managed to get a Morphy Richards Fastbake machine and the ingredients just before the apocalypse hit. If you're having any doubt, don't - it's foolproof, you really can't go wrong with a bread maker if you stick to the recipe.

As someone said you probably won't save any money from doing this, but for me nothing compares to waking up to the smell of a fresh loaf in the morning.

Heated.

1mL of water weighs exactly one gram, as the density of water is 1000 kg/m3 at atmospheric pressure

Oka thanks, and what about this dried milk,as it seems dried milk quite expensive,the sandwich loaf is Normal milk but the other loaf such as White ask for dry milk
Bought. I was waiting for a Panasonic to be in stock at a reasonable price. But for this price and the fact that this one is a little smaller so takes up less cupboard space I have taken the plunge.

I get dried milk from Tesco. It is also called milk powder. You can use it instead of fresh milk too. Or you can leave it out and just use water. If a recipe calls for fresh milk, you can use dried milk and water instead. If a recipe calls for dried milk and water, you can use milk instead of both. Always keep the ratio of liquid in the recipe the same. Have a look in Lidl or Aldi for dried skimmed milk. It might be cheaper.

I get my bread flour from Lidl. It is half the price of Tesco. Have a look if you have a Lidl near you. You should be able to get most of the ingredients from Lidl or Aldi cheaper. I get my yeast from Tesco though as they do the Allinson tin.

Here is a pic of the dried milk from Tesco. It lasts quite a while.

This is the yeast I get. You need easy bake yeast, instant yeast, bread maker yeast, or quick yeast. Do not get active dried yeast or fresh yeast. Those yeasts needs to be activated first. It isn't the best for a bread machine. The yeast I recommended don't need activating. You just add them to your bread maker.

Here is a pic of the one I always get. Keep it in the fridge once opened or in the freezer. It lasts even longer in the freezer. I keep mine in the fridge though.

I never use caster sugar. I just use normal granulated sugar that you put in tea. If you have that, just use that instead of spending on the caster sugar.

I think supermarkets are starting to get more flour in now. You should 'hopefully' be able to get some.

I use bread bags that I got from Amazon and Lakeland. They have a linen outer and plastic inner. Homemade bread doesn't last as long as shop bought as it doesn't have preservatives in it. I find it is suitable for sandwiches on day one. Then the following days it is ok for toast, eggy bread and to dip in soup.

On the yeast tin it says to use within 4 months of opening. I've used it a lot longer than that though and it was ok. Just make sure it is in the fridge or freezer once opened and not put back in the cupboard. It lasts a long while in the fridge.

Folk who freeze it say it lasts indefinitely. I've never frozen yeast but I've seen that lots of people in some facebook groups I'm in do. They say they keep some in the fridge to use and store the rest in the freezer. Then they take bits out of the freezer to use as and when they need it. If the tin isn't freezer-friendly, you could put the yeast in freezer bags.

You can always test if the yeast is still good before using it. You mix a bit in some lukewarm water with a bit of sugar and see if it froths. If it doesn't, you know it is dead. Don't use it.

If you are on facebook, join a group called, 'Bread Maker Recipes'. You can get recipes and lots of tips and advice there.

I've got two bread bags. One for larger loads from Lakeland and one for smaller loaves from Amazon. Both are currently sold out due to all the Covid madness. They should get them in again though. Or you can look and see if you can get them from elsewhere. Check ebay etc.
