Died milk
« on: June 12, 2020, 13:44 »
My hunt for bread flour brought me to sainsburys where I found some and while there thought I would get some dried milk for bread normally paying 1.30,1.60 per tin nearly collapsed  to find it was 4.00 for the same tin needless to say I was expecting a price hike but that's ridiculous.

Was the £4 for Marvel? If so, that seems about normal nowadays. Tesco do their own and so do Asda. I got a couple of 340 g  tins from Asda about February and it was £1.80 I think (now seems to be £1.98).

Yes, I got Marvel just before lockdown and paid £3 odd for it (only 278g in the tin)  Trashco now charge £4, but their own brand, now they have it back in stock, is £2 for 340g - I had some delivered on Tuesday :)

There do seem to be some fairly hefty price rises going on.
I noticed that Trashco (I like that!) are selling their flour in 1 kg bags, it used to be 1.5kg so that's a huge price hike...I think...I may be mistaken.
I did buy some Polish plain flour which was about 30% cheaper, I've yet to use any. It's sold as light and fluffy for cakes, but it is just plain flour with no raising agent.
There is a large amount of wallet rape going on.  :mad:

Can you use dried milk in cakes as well as bread.   I never have milk in, so when I think I'll make.... I never have milk, then cannot be bothered.   Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

Remember that "dried milk" is almost always skimmed milk powder so it will reconstitute to skimmed milk. If the recipe relies on the milk for any fat content, it will be missing.

I picked up some skimmed milk powder from Amazon at about £6.50 for 500g because I needed it to add to a custard for ice cream and extra milk protein in homemade yoghurt.

Thanks jezza, I checked it before I bought it. It is 100% wheat flour, that's why I thought I'd give it a go.
