Shopping list

We know we do not have anything you might like, so tell us in the comments what you would like to order for next time and if we get enough demand we will add it in to the order. Note we cannot import alcohol, and glass bottles can be difficult to get here in one piece.

For example so far we have 1 request for self-raising flour and one for Cadburys highlights milk chocolate powder.

Self-Raising Flour

We often get requests from our customers to stock self-raising flour. We have currently made the decision not to stock it as we used to find supplies went out of date.

All is not lost….

Self-raising flour is easy to create yourself at home: It is merely a mixture of Plain flour and Baking powder.

Use the proportions of 150g/5oz/1 cup to 2 teaspoons of baking powder.

Simply mix the ingredients together and sieve to ensure that the baking powder is evenly distributed in the flour. You can then store this mix for using in recipes which require self-raising flour.

Please be aware that baking powder does have a use by date and after this time it is less effective. Make sure your flour mix is used within this timescale.

Happy Baking!
