Preparation and Usage

  • Preparation time: 30-35 minutes, plus 1-2 hours proving

    Baking time: 35 minutes

    Makes: 1 loaf

    You will need:

    320ml Water;

    25g Butter;

    Baking tray lined with parchment paper;

    Plain flour for dusting

    Hand Baking Method:

    1. Empty the bread mix in a large bowl. Rub the softened butter (or margarine) into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs then gradually add the water.

    2. Mix together with your hands until the dough is well combined. Bring the dough together into a ball.

    3. Using floured hands, knead the dough on a clean, floured work surface for 20-25 minutes, or until the dough is elastic and smooth. If necessary add a little more water to loosen the dough.

    4. Return the dough to the bowl and cover with a clean damp tea towel or cling film. Set aside for 1-1½ hours in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.

    5. When the dough has risen, return it to a floured work surface and knock it back.

    6. To shape into the bloomer, flatten the dough into a rectangle. With the long side facing you fold each end into the middle then roll like a Swiss roll so that you have a smooth top with a seam along the base. Very gently roll with the heel of your hands.

    7. Place on a tray lined with parchment paper, cover and leave to prove for 1-2 hours at room temperature, or until doubled in size.

    8. Lightly spray with water and dust with a little flour. Make four diagonal slashes using a sharp knife across the top.

    9. Preheat the oven to 230⁰C/Fan 210⁰C/Gas Mark 8. Place the loaf on the middle shelf and bake for 25 minutes. After this time lower the heat to 200⁰C/Fan 180⁰C/Gas Mark 6 and bake for a further 10 minutes.

    10. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Terrible product do not buy

1 stars

I have bought three of these to make in my bread machine and all three have failed to rise and turn out like rock I am very disappointed I have always used Wrights successfully but thought I would try Tesco brand really rubbish !!!!!!!!!!

Excellent loaf

5 stars

Saw this online and decided to dig out my bread maker. It was one of the best loaves I have ever made. Crusty on the outside and that special texture of sourdough bread. Really nice loaf.

Tasty Sourdough flavour, quick and easy

4 stars

Very good for those days when you have run out of Sourdough starter to make your own from scratch or those lazy days you just want to use your breadmaker. To be honest I find myself using this premix more often than actually making it from scratch these days as I tend to forget to feed my sourdough starter.

Life is too short.

2 stars

I thought it would be quick and easy like the white and wholemeal.Too much prep time and work for what turned out to be nothing special.

Lovely taste and texture

5 stars

Yes excellent; just take your time during preparation and in a nice warm kitchen; I did mine in a 2lb baking tin and it turned out too big but the result was lovely; I baked it at number 6 gas and not 8 as instructed for about 25 mins; lovely taste and texture but too big for the toaster; next time I will use half the amount (250g) and use the 2lb baking tin and I will write another review then.

I made this in my bread machine. It rose and looke

1 stars

I made this in my bread machine. It rose and looked fine, but tasted like and had the consitancy of foam rubber. I was quite disappointed...

Makes a good loaf with a mild sourdough taste

4 stars

Not a tee sourdough taste but if you like a bit of tang in your bread this is quite nice. We use our bread maker for it and always add butter, because we feel it improves the overall loaf texture and moisture.

Not what I expected

1 stars

As an experienced domestic bread-maker who loves sourdough bread, that I wold give this a whirl. Mistake, first and last time - I shall resume buying the delicious bloomers baked in-store by Tesco! Main problem is texture, not rising properly. Second problem is the lack of sourdough taste/smell.sensation, seems like the yeast has died by being put in a packet. Final nail in the coffin is that this packet mix contains SUGAR, argghhh.

Good result in my breadmaker

5 stars

Use this sourdough packet mixed in my. Breadmaker and it resulted in an excellent sourdough loaf. Toasted the following day with toppings of our choice, some salad and a bowl of soup, made a delicious lunch.
