Making bread? Use this one!
Fabulous for bread. I have used bags and bags of this flour for years. It is amazing and very reliable. If you want the quality and colour of Canadian flour, then this is for you. If you can find a copy, look for the Allinson booklet on better bread for recipes to use this stuff. Good luck!
This Makes Tasty Bread.
I do not use a bread making machine so cannot say how it works for that type of baking.. I have used this flour to for a couple of weeks and it makes a tasty good even textured loaf of bread. I think the texture of the bread with this flour might be more even than the other strong white flour but there is not a big difference. Maybe it needs a bit more kneading at the first stage than the other flour. As with all bread making the results vary slightly each batch so it is hard to say how much better it is. The differences could be down to slight variations in how long I prove it for, the warmth of room etc. It is part of the skill of making a good loaf to be able to make the right adjustments and I think experience helps. I have found the bread I have made with Allisons bread flours always produces a good loaf using my very simple recipe. Discovering a recipe that works is important.
Best bread flour
Has the highest g of protein compared to other strong bread flour. No need to top up with gluten flour with local British bread flour with just 11-12g protein. I always get perfect, really "bouncy" (as opposed to "dense and heavy" ) nicely structured bread on my bread machine.
