Anybody manage to get hold of flour lately, if so, where did you get it? It seems all the supermarkets are listing it as "out of stock" I have some but would love to get hold of some more self raising I'm committed to making a couple of family member birthday cakes (to be dropped off on doorsteps nearby)

Maybe I should add not interested in buying it off ebay at £14 a bag grin damn cheek!

No flour at all in Lidl.

I know this is an old post now, but has anyone in Lincoln managed to get any SR flour? I’ve tried everywhere!

No flour where we live and hasn't been for weeks.

I keep ordering gram (chickpea) flour in my Sainsburys online orders to have a go at one of Nadiya’s recipes that I really fancy. It’s been in my trolley 3 times now but keeps falling out somewhere between the store and our house. If anyone finds it, could you let me know?

Is this of any use to you?

I get flour in my Ocado order now (I bought a delivery pass last year so they have eventually given me regular slots)

Our local Tesco’s had Plain flour last Monday and DH got a 1 kg bag for a neighbour. Not a brand I’d heard of before and can’t remember the name.
Self raising : I got 2x 500 gym bags of Sainsbury’s own brand with my weekly grocery delivery (from Sainsbury’s).

My daughter has just arrived with plain and SR flour from Lidl.

Tesco had none in my online order today.
She managed to get bread flour last week.

I managed to get flour from our local farm shop. Good luck 🤞

When I did my Tesco online order the only SR flour available was their basic one. I ordered two but got 3 packets of coconut flour which cost £10.50 more. It was price matched so I didn't have to pay the extra and my daughter likes cooking with coconut flour so am swapping it for some of her SR flour. So we are both happy!

At the back of a cupboard, I found a pack of instant dried yeast, 2 years out of date, but I put it in a dish with some water and sugar and it worked as planned. I had to use plain flour and the first loaf turned out to be good and tasty. Second time round, I may have left it in the oven a little too long and it was so 'crusty' I could have done with a chains saw! Some of it made good garlic croutons. I got some more plain flour, on DS2's recommendation, from a company, Cream solutions, but their delivery charge is rather high and they didn't have any strong or wholemeal flour. I'm thinking of having a go at some flatbreads. I used to make pittas in the days when I needed a packed lunch.

I bought a kg of McDougall's plain flour in Marks yesterday, really surprised to see that back on the shelf. Also managed to secure a Tesco delivery slot for next week, self raising is listed as in stock so have ordered some of that as well, however no brown sugar, apart from the cubes for coffee. Still mustn't grumble, minor annoyance.
