Product Description

A flour blend milled from naturally gluten and wheat free ingredients this is an alternative to everyday wheat flour which will require a little extra liquid in most recipes.

We are passionate about home baking and also believe that what we eat today will affect our health tomorrow. As well as being a satisfying and rewarding activity, when you bake at home you can select the best quality, local and seasonal ingredients, and be certain of what has gone into your food. You and your family will enjoy great tasting home made food. We often double the recipe and when baked, freeze half to eat at a later date.

In our mill we make a large range of flours from many different natural grains, beans & seeds without adding refined gluten or enzymes. We blend specific grain varieties to ensure that the resulting flour has the optimum characteristic for the type of baking it will be used for. This means soft wheat varieties for cakes, pastry and sauces or stronger hard wheat for bread making flours. The more unusual flours have distinctive characters and applications of their own. If you are on a special diet look out for those flours that suit your situation.

"This flour was designed to be used in place of wheat flour so the whole family could enjoy eating the same thing at meal times. It is very absorbent so add a little extra liquid when following your own recipes. For bread making it is important to follow our special recipe."
Clare & Michael, Doves Farm

Makes best crunble ever

As the title suggests this flour makes the best fruit crumbles ever. Not cloying but light and crumbly topping especially if you mix chopped nuts in with it. Family member is coeliac and this is a life saver for being able to offer a decent dessert.

Great results

Tried this product out and was not expecting great results. I was wrong! Made an apple crumble and fish pie so far and results were fantastic. Nobody noticed any difference, including me (with my taste buds on alert). The pack gives basic recipes for crumble, white sauce, cake etc which is handy.

Now use it all the time

I bake and cook a lot and have several friends with gluten intolerance or nut allergy. This flour is easily as good for performance as any of the standard brands that contain gluten. Highly recommended.
