The sweet smell of success! Before Christmas I thought my trusty Panasonic bread make (1998) had died. The bread wasn’t rising or browning. I tried 3 or 4 times but the same result. Resigned to having to buy a new one I eventually made it to John Lewis yesterday. Having explained the situation to the assistant, she then suggested I try Canadian very strong bread flour. The reason being, last year was so bad weather wise that flour has not been up to the job in this country apparently. Well the proof as they say is in the pudding or in this case the loaf!
