Bread making in UK

97 posts in this topic

Glad I found this thread, rather than starting a new one :) ... 

 

Has anyone here tried the Sainsburys "Multiseeded loaf" from their bakery ? First off, having trawled every supermarket and "bakery" for miles around I can tell you that it's unique to Sainsburys.

 

Secondly, I wondered what flour they use (or make up) ? The packaging says "This bread is made using white flour, rye flour, oats and wheat bran with sunflower, pumpkin, linseed sesame and poppy seeds"

 

It's crusty (when they get it right) and covered in seeds, which I believe means it's not really one for a breadmaking machine ????

@JimmyPage.....My breadmaker has an indicating beep after the first kneading that tells you when it's ok to add seeds or fruit....stops.the machine smashing the seeds up. If you want seeds on the top, I'd quickly open it before the final bake cycle starts and sprinkle them on, should be fine, can't see why not. :yep:

All those ingredients should be easily available, so there's no reason why you couldn't try and replicate it, just a case of ingredient ratios.

While I'm here, does anyone know if Garlic affects yeast? I've had two loaves not rise and I've put garlic granules in both of them. As far as I'm aware they don't have added salt. :unsure:

Nowt better than getting your hands sticky. Piece of piss to make it old skool style. Put on some tunes and get kneading. Never understood a Bread maker. It takes up half the kitchen for a loaf to last the weekend. No wonder BM's are always seen in Charity shops

:eat:     Sourdough bread's bloody lovely, the local bakery does pots of organic sourdough and pots of another live yeast culture for one pound fifty each, sounded pretty reasonable to me. :)  

I think you just feed them flour and water to keep them alive? :unsure:   Should really have a bash at making bread with live yeast and the oven, I didn't really do that well with the powdered stuff and breadmaker, was so heavy even the birds left it alone. lol
