    Cotswold Crunch has to be the best blend of flour of its type that I have used in almost 30 years of bread baking. New to it with a consignment during lockdown, it is now an absolute favourite and I will always keep some in my cupboard.

  4. Darren Gladwell

    This is lovely in a sour dough (I mix some strong white in too), crunchy and nutty, this is a favourite, but will see if the eight grain knocks it off the top spot

    When flour became scarce during Lockdown, a kind neighbour offered to share his consignment of flour with me and I found two bags of Cotswold Crunch on my doorstep. I had never used it before but after the first loaf and batch of rolls, it was so delicious that it will now be a regular order from me and a staple flour for my sourdough baking. The rich, wholesome, nutty flavour is a family favourite. Matthews Cotswold flour website is easy to use and ordering and delivery is fast and reliable. A very happy customer.

    Bought 5 bags of this flour to share with my daughter, I’ve made 3 loaves since Friday and everyone loves it, will definitely buy again

  11. Jerry Bower

    This flour makes delicious bread in my bread making making machine.
    I was diagnosed as type 2 diabetic in October 2018 and is being diet controlled so I am very conscious of what I eat . Most , if not all, whole grain /granary / brown flours have a lower GI ( glycemic index) and therefore is better for diabetics . I really enjoy toast with marmalade or jam ( all homemade ) for my breakfast and the occasional sandwich at other times.
    When freshly made , sandwiches are delicious and when toasted , have a great crunch . I may ,in time practice mixing this flour with others from this company .
    Great service & delivery from Company

    Great flour love the taste of my bread and rolls would recommend wholeheartedly

  18. David Grant

    One of my favourite flours, certainly the best seeded version. I use a 75/25% with organic white and to make a special loaf, use Hiver Honey Beer, ot on other occasions, ale or even Guinness. The Cotswold Crunch copes with virtually any liquid, alcoholic or not and is a firm favourite with family and friends and works well by hand or machine, although its much more satisfactory by hand!

  21. jacky turner

    I’ve baked my own bread for 40 years and CC makes the best loaf I have ever made. It’s so nutty and malty. I don’t have a bread maker, so knead it by hand, which is very messy, because the mix is wet as the grain soaks up the moisture. But we think that is a small price to pay for such a delicious loaf. You have worked so hard during lockdown to keep us supplied. Thank you.

  22. Adele Lowndes

    When flour supplies elsewhere were more miss than hit I took a punt on Cotswold Crunch and trusted the many 5 star reviews. I’m chuffed that I can add my own to the list! Several loaves in now, and absolutely overjoyed with the consistently perfect bread that is being produced. It’s spot on to use in a bread maker, there’s no looking back and I’ll be trying other mixes when I’ve exhausted this batch. It’s fresh-bread heaven!!

    I love the flavor and texture of this flour. I use 450g of this combined with 250g strong white which gives a perfect loaf every time. I have just started making sourdough so I wonder if anyone has tried adding Cotswold Crunch and if so how much?

  35. mark3

    brilliant ! 250g strong white, 250g Cotswold crunch 7g dried yeast, 10g salt, 300ml tepid water – dough cycle for 90 mins – rise in loaf tin 1hr bake 180c for 40 mins – make it every other day or so – best tasting bread ever and no rubbish in it whatsoever !!

  36. Debbie

    Since discovering Cotswold Crunch and using it to make sourdough, we can’t get enough of it. My small client base regularly order the CC preferring the flavour to all my other sourdoughs. My family agree. Makes a versatile loaf that’s as good with sweet toppings as it is with savoury.

  43. Debbie Thompson

    A really lovely great tasting flour that my bread maker ( yes I cheat!) gives me the perfect loaf every time.

    This makes a delicious loaf with a very good crisp crust …. the best yet!

  48. Bee Gregorie

    I have made a few sourdough loves with Cotswold Crunch, it’s by far the tastiest flour I have used, followed closely by the Eight Grain. So glad I found you!

  49. Laura

    I ordered some CC and some 8 Grain on the recommendation of my brother. We’ve just had our first loaf made with 50/50 mix of both and it’s some of the nicest bread I have had out of our bread maker. Will definitely re-order! Thank you!

  52. SueyM

    All time favourite! Using my trusty bread-maker, CC makes easy-to-handle dough for tasty bread rolls. Love them fresh out of the oven with lashings of butter! Makes a great loaf, good texture, exceptional taste. Works well as a half and half – ie half white/half CC or half wholemeal/half CC. Need to experiment further by adding olives or sundried tomatoes. Mmm!

  53. Max Grant

    Have just used for the first time and as gone down as some of the best bread I have made with the rest of the family.

    Delicious crunchy flour, gives a beautiful colour and texture to the bread. I am by no means a master baker, I use a bread machine, but everyone comments on how delicious the loaves are! I use 1/2 White and 1/2 of this for a lighter bake. Would recommend!

  56. Maggie

    Not used this before and made loaves and bread rolls with my first batch. Well it did not last long, pinched by visiting children. It has the thumbs up for the whole family. The rolls freeze really well and make a great quick lunch when warmed up.

    Hi Elizabeth, thank you for the lovely feedback – nothing beats homemade bread! Have you tried our Eight Grain flour? Its a strong white bread flour bursting with seeds and grains, making it healthy AND yummy!

    Hi Dorothy, thank you for the lovely comments, the Cotswold Crunch is a big favourite in the office! Please do feel free to send us some photos of your bread rolls!

    Laura

  61. DorothyM

    An ideal mixture for use in bread, rolls, etc as it’s not as heavy as using completely wholemeal flour. Make a dough that rises well and the texture is lighter; use to make dough in my breadmaker rather than a complete baking cycle as this allows me to make rolls when needed.
