Product Description

Organic mixed grain malthouse bread flour.

Malthouse flour is made from wheat and rye flours combined with flaked malted grains for a wholesome crunchy texture. It is ideal for use in bread machines and for oven baked yeast cookery.
Doves Farm has been established for over 35 years; our original organic and farming ethos remains at the heart of our business and is shared by our customers, farmers and suppliers around the world. We follow international organic rules, rotating crops, grassland and livestock to develop natural soil fertility and help wildlife conservation. We're proud to be one of the few independent food businesses to have raised the profile and awareness of organic and gluten free baking. We make a large range of flours from many different natural grains, beans and seeds without adding refined gluten or enzymes. By blending grain varieties we can ensure the ideal characteristics for baking, for example, soft wheat varieties for cakes, pastry and sauces or stronger hard wheat for bread making flours. If you are on a special diet look out for those flours that suit you.

Brilliant in a bread machine

OMG, I have just made some bread in my bread machine. Not used it for a while, but thought I would give it a go again. I used avocado and coconut oil, and a spot of honey instead of all sugar and this fabulous flour. It has made an amazing loaf. I can't stop eating it!! Really is the yummiest loaf I have ever made!!

Fantastic in a bread machine

I use this to make bread in our panasonic bread maker. Just following the standard loaf recipe and setting it produces consistent and absolutely delicious bread. We eat tons of the stuff now.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

This is the best flour for a granary style loaf ,use fresh yeast if you can it is available from this on line store it improves the texture and flavour.

Delicious, crunchy, tasty bread

I mix one cup of this flour with 2 cups of white for a fantastic bread machine loaf. Takes just a bit more water.

This is wonderful flour. I agree with the other reviewer. I make the cob loaf - see back of packet for details and it produces a really good loaf. Its given me more confidence to make more bread. SO thank you Doves. This one packed makes 2 large cob loaves - so much cheaper than the bread from the local farmshop, it tastes better, keeps better and doesn't take too long to make!
