Matthews Cotswold Plain White All-Purpose Flour 1.5kg & 4.5kg
A classic, plain white all-purpose flour for everyday baking. The highest-quality soft wheats are milled to a fine consistency to create a versatile flour for cakes and bakes.
Provenance & Milling: We source our soft wheat from our local Cotswold Grain Partnership. The fields surrounding the mill are great for soft wheat flour. We prepare our grain in 100-year-old pinewood bins before milling. Soft wheats are best for culinary flour, like Plain Flour, Pastry Flour, Cake Flour and Self-Raising Flour. All our flour is unbleached.
Recipe Recommendations: Cookies, Muffins, cakes, pastry dough, scones, shortbreads, Banana bread, doughnuts, Focaccia, soda bread, vegan naan bread. Apple cake, Chocolate-Dipped Biscotti and many delicious sweet and savoury products, crepes.
Did you know? Our Cotswold Plain white flour in the 16KG bakers bag version is called Rollright after a local village where the ancient Rollright stones lie on top of the hill. All our Cotswold Flours are named after local villages surrounding the mill.
