Has anyone seen Dempster's Malt Bread in Vancouver?

I'm on such a`roll here that I'll try again.

I used to have Soreen malt loaf in the U.K. and I know that it's available at the British Butcher
Shoppe but it's pretty pricey.

I wonder if anyone knows where I can get what appears to be the same thing.

      Thanks fmed. It's this kind of chewy dense thing and oy, such a butter vehicle!

        fmed, interested parties,

        Soreen is apparently available at Sherlocks in New West (the British place that was recommended for the chocolate eclairs). Around $3.50 but for a splurge.....

          Oh God, Soreen with a good layer of butter on it is the best thing ever. I brought back 10 loaves from my last trip to UK and I just finished the last one. So I just went out and bought a tub of malt extract and I'm going to try and recreate it in my bread machine.

            Someone after my own heart! I may just have to go to the British Butcher Shoppe in N. Van and get some.

            What did you do with your loaves? Freeze them until required? Let me know if your experiment with the bread machine works.

              they keep quite a while in the plastic wrappers. but they didn't really get much chance to go stale :)
