Been given a bread maker and was gonna put one of those mixes in (the one where all you add is water) and it is out of date (dec 08) would you use it or not??

I know DH would, normally I wouldn't but it is a dry mix and wonder if I could?

I would.

I probably would - I suppose the yeast might not be as effective though.

Thanks, I will try it and see how it goes.

It won´t have gone bad as such, just may not be at its best taste wise..

Having said that, I have about 5 bags of out of date flour atm and they´ve all been fine!

Well it's in now so time will tell lol.

I'm going out later so will pick some more up.

I really must learn what ingredients I need to do the loaf from scratch blush. Would be cheaper in the long run.

It won't matter now cos you've already done it but I would have sniffed the mix to see if it smelt stale. Stale flour etc. does have a particular smell but I reckon it would take longer than 6m to achieve it! My mum used to use flour that was much older than that!grin

Much much cheaper OP and really easy! Basically, flour, butter or oil, salt and maybe a bit sugar and yeast. The mixes are SO expensive, don´t bother with them!

thumbwitch, I did actually give it an exploratory sniff before I put it in the bread maker grin It smelt okay/normal to me TBH.

I might make DH try it out first though when he gets home tonight lol, he has a cast iron gut nothing upsets him lol.

NoTart, I used to have a bero cook book but for the life of me I cant find it. Must have gotten lost when we moved. I've had a look in the bread maker book and it has some basic recipes so I will follow them for a start while I get the hang of it.

the loaf was really nice, DD had a massive slice with jam on grin, bless her, she ate it all as well.

Not much left for DH so I've put another one on with the mixes that my mum brought me round earlier.
