My review of Helen’s brilliant bread

I was pleased to be asked to test out some of Food by Helen’s mixes my review of some of her other mixes is available here. My final mix to try was the Brilliant bread I just needed to add water and oil.


The instructions were very easy to follow I decided to make mine by hand but there are methods on the reverse for breadmaker or electric  mixer.


All you need is water and oil


Add the dry mix to water and oil

mix well and pour into greased bread tin ( 4.5in-9in )


No kneading!

Leave to prove in a warm place or Helen suggests you sit the loaf tin in a tray of warm water for 40 mins and it doubles in size.

Then pop in the oven for 35-40 mins


I was impressed with the crusty top and springy texture


cool on a wire rack


slice and enjoy with some good butter

The family’s verdict was “Amazing”  “delicious”   ” best gluten free bread I’ve tasted”

The cost of the bread mix  is £2.49 very good value I think.

I will definitely be buying this mix again, I think the family will demand it!
