“I was about to say what excellent service I got with my flour order, which by the way I received today, I have one baking as I write ! I was debating whether to put bread mixes on my shopping list when it arrived. I must admit I never checked the delivery time when I ordered knowing it would be up to your usual standard, but I was must admit I was surprised at how quick it did come. I should have done this months ago, I did mention I was thinking about it when I last e.mailed you about a query I had with my bread machine , which you answered, and which worked out for me, many thanks. I have just tried a malty bread mix for the first time which tastes gorgeous. My brother in law was visiting from Nottingham last week just as I had brought it out of the machine, he was very impressed and said he had a machine which they never used !!! so I sent him home with a couple of your mixes and strict instructions to get it out and try again, he promised he would as he has now retired from work he seemed quite fired up to give it another try. Anyway thanks again for your very good service. ”

Deb's Tips

Jam Doughnuts – inject jam into the doughnut using a piping tube. Roll in caster sugar. Apple Doughnuts – using a small cutter remove a portion of the doughnut and fill with apple pie filling. Dredge with icing sugar. Cream Doughnuts – split lengthways and pipe in cream. Dredge in icing sugar and finish with a strip of jam on the cream. Custard Doughnuts – make up a thick custard, allow to cool and pipe into the doughnut that has been split lengthways. Dust with icing sugar.
