“I would just like to say how delicious and fantastic your bread mixes are. I have been making bread (mostly using packets to save time) for over 30 years. Yours is superior to any other and successful every time. It rises quickly after kneading, rises well and tastes delicious after cooking. I will never use any other bread mix henceforth. Thank you!”Rosalind Venables
This type of bread creates the perfect ploughmans served in a wedge or large roll. With mustard and cheese added to the Cheddar & Sundried Tomato bread you will only need a small salad to create flavours associated with a ploughman's luncheon.
