    1. Preheat the oven to 230ºC/Fan 210ºC/Gas Mark 8.

    2. Place the bread mix into a large bowl and add the warm water. Mix for 5 mintues either by hand or in a food mixer to form a dough.

Perfect loaf

5 stars

Makes perfect loaf- so delicious! First time making bread and it was much better than buying it from a shop. I didn’t used to like whole meal but I absolutely love this

Great when its in stock

5 stars

This is never in stock :( :(

Didn't rise. Won't buy again.

Buy Wrights instead

1 stars

Not a patch on Wrights bread mixes. A dull undersized loaf.


1 stars

Bread sunk and was as hard as a brick. I'll stick to adding the ingredients from scratch.

Should be called Tesco Crusty Wholemeal Brick Mix

1 stars

If I could give this no stars I would. Have used this mix twice and followed the instructions to make in my Panasonic SD253 bread maker which usually always produces a perfect loaf from a bread mix or scratch. Both times you could use the resulting flat hard brick like loaf to make a house. It is like they havent put any yeast in the mix. Terrible product do NOT waste your money or time unless you are building an extension and need a brick.

Great flour - but use less water.

4 stars

Fabulous bread - crunchy on the outside soft in the middle. Makes great toast. (Keep it fresh in a plastic bag with the air removed - suggestion from in-store baker, and it works, though the crust loses crunch.) So why only 4 stars? Because when I use the recommended 325 ml of water in my Morphy Richards Fast-Bake it ALWAYS over-rises and sticks to the roof, which is a real pain to clean, since it is non-detachable. It did the same in my Breville Bread-maker, but at least I could remove its lid! I recommend using 300 ml as with Wrights pre-mix flour (310ml is OK)

How to spoil and old favourite.

3 stars

Used it for a number of years with good results but I suspect they have changed suppliers or formulation over the last year ( to save money) because now I am getting some pretty ropey results more often than not. Previously every loaf was nigh on perfect with a beautiful light fluffy texture and great crust whereas now it has a rough dry texture, often with large voids and doesn't keep well. They are on a yellow card and if it doesn't improve I will ditch it. Tesco seem to have a habit of spoiling or discontinuing good products.

can buy in store but not online for no good reason

1 stars

One star because my husband can buy it in store (in Cheltenham) but somehow (a computer programming error probably) I cannot add it to my online delivery!!!! It makes great bread though.
