Wright's Oat & Linseed Bread Mix review

When I was clearing out the baking cupboard last week, I came across a pack of Wright's Oat & Linseed Bread Mix that had been in the Shake Up Your Wake Up breakfast hamper for Farmhouse Breakfast Week a few months ago. There were so many pre-baked goodies to work through in the hamper that I hadn't had a chance to use it yet.

The bread mix can be used in a bread machine or for baking by hand. Either way, you just need the contents of the 500g pack and 300ml of lukewarm water. I put the mix in the bread machine with the water and set it on the "normal" 3-hour setting.

This is what came out - yum ! It was lovely and crispy and browned on top and had actually risen much more than the usual Lidl bread mix I use.

Inside, the bread was soft and chewy with a lovely scattering of seeds throughout so it was packed with flavour. Even the Madhouse Mini-testers loved it and they're often put off by bread with "bits" in !

According to the packaging, an average 45g slice contains 112 calories, 0.6g of sugars, 2.4g of fat (of which 0.3g saturates) and 0.5g of salt. Made with a combination of oat bran and wheat bran, it is also high in both soluble and insoluble fibre. More to the point, it tastes really lovely too.

star rating : 4.5/5

RRP : 97p for 500g

Disclosure : I received the product in a hamper of breakfast goodies for Farmhouse Breakfast Week in order to write an honest review.

  1. Love Wrights bread mixes - their cake mixes are brilliant too. Now, they are no relation to me but I use their mixes in my bread machine all the time = lovely fresh bread. Nothing smells better than bread baking or a cake just out of the oven or bread machine.
