Neills Flour – Apple & Cinnamon Bread Mix – Review

We at BakingBar are not normally fans of ready mixes but we understand that some people are. This ready mix for Apple & Cinnamon Bread changed our opinion. There are certain recipes which take a lot more time than most people have. Some people don’t have 1 hour to wait for bread to rise, enough time to stand and knead the dough or even enough time to measure out the ingredients. Well we have a solution for you, this comes in the form of Neills Flour newly launched Apple & Cinnamon Bread Mix. 5 mins to prepare and 27 mins to bake!
This is part of a range of mixes which we will be testing out and reviewing in the coming week. Our previous review was Neills Irish Wheaten Bread Mix. You can read this here.

The packaging is simplistic but this is a benefit! The instructions are clear, concise and easy to follow.
The ingredients which you have to add to make this fantastic recipe is something which all of us already have in the fridge. Simple milk and a tiny amount of butter.


So how do you make this wheaten bread?
Well the instructions on the back of the packet couldn’t be clearer.
Preheat oven to 195c
Measure out 330g of the Flour Mix (the bag makes 3 loaves!!!)
Measure out 245ml of Milk (whole, semi skimmed or buttermilk)
Pour the flour mix into a large mixing bowl
Mix in 15g of butter until it mixes evenly through the flour
Add the Milk
Stir together until combined, pour into a greased loaf tin.
Even out and slit down the middle with a knife.
Sprinkle with a little flour
Bake for 27 mins, remove from oven and let rest for 5 mins.
Turn out, cut and enjoy!

So what do we think of this Apple & Cinnamon Bread mix? Well it looks like Neills Flour have triumphed again! A fantastic mix which is hard to tell the difference between it and a normal apple and cinnamon loaf which you take a lot longer to make. The bread is perfect served with butter or we find honey makes it even more indulgent.
