The Co-operative Food launches bread and cake mixes in home baking range

The Co-operative Food claims it is encouraging shoppers to don their aprons by introducing some fabulous new additions to its great-value home-baking range, perfect for creating cakes and breads at home.

In store from  30 September 2013 and priced from 92p, the retailer said its new range of cake and bread pre-mixes are made from 100% British flour, and include easy-to-follow recipes to help budding bakers create perfectly tempting treats.  

With the popularity of home baking ever growing thanks to the success of shows such as the Great British Bake Off, the pre-mixed products are a fun way to get the whole family involved. The home-baking range is an easy, stress-free way to create something special at home for those less confident bakers, with each mix requiring only the addition of water, eggs and butter, The Co-operative Food said.
