Why not bake a loaf to support Real Bread Week which is this week? Holgate Windmill wholemeal flour makes a great loaf by using either 100% wholemeal flour or for a lighter loaf use 50% wholemeal and 50% white flour. Another really tasty bread is a seeded bread using 50% spelt and 50% rye. You can buy our flour from our shop which is open every Saturday between 10 and 12 or from a number of local shops, as shown on our website. If you do bake something using our flour please post a photo on social media. #holgatewindmill #Holgate #RealBreadWeek #readbread #readbreadcampaign #homebaking #homemadebread #homemadebread🍞 #wholemealbread #wholemealflour #spelt #SpeltFlour #WeAreRealBread ...
