Review: Paul Hollywood bread mixes

Last week I had the pleasure of trying out some of Paul Hollywood’s new bread mixes. I’m always a little dubious about mixes where you simply add a couple of ingredients as the end product often tastes factory made, but with these it couldn’t be further from the truth.

This easy-to-use, artisan-inspired baking mix range is available in twelve delicious recipes including Garlic and Herb Tear ‘n’ share mix which I tried out for myself.

image4.JPGThe mixes are easy to use (just add water and a bit of oil) and offer step by step instructions and pictures on the back of the packet to help. They’re great for inspiring you to bake something you might not have the confidence to try from scratch and allow you to bake more adventurously.

The mixes have been developed with Paul and use only the highest quality ingredients including British flour and real Belgian chocolate.

The baking range is available at Morrisons, Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado from £1.49.

    Sorry to contredict you but I ve tried the tomato/thyme mix and the taste is awful. I don’t know which products are in the mix but even after a small piece of it, I was subject to nausea and lot of saluva in my mouth. I thought it could be me but my kids tried it as well with the same side effects. So for me it s a big No No.

    1. That’s such a shame! I have a tomato and thyme mix in my cupboard that I haven’t tried yet and a plain bread mix so will see how I get on. I really enjoyed the Garlic and Herb tear bread though.

    I had the garlic and herb bread. It tasted very strange to me. A slight bitterness, almost like when you add to much baking powder to something. I dont think there was any in the actual mix though? Afterwards my belly was quite painful and really Gurgly, its my first time making bread so maybe it was something I did? I wont be buy again though.

    1. Oh no… someone else had commented that this was a problem for them too although I was fine. I didn’t add any baking powder to my mix.
