Terrible product do not buy
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 !!!!!!!!!!
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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.
