Ok, so I’m writing this post with a HUGE caveat. You either need a bit of spare time on your hands, or you need to make an initial outlay of money.
Tip #1 Make your own bread
This one’s easy for me to say because a while back we bought a bread-making machine. We love bread in our house. It’s, without a doubt, a daily staple. Tom loves is, Theo loves it, I love it. But it can be expensive.
By making your own bread you can spend less than 30p a loaf! I think that’s pretty amazing. And it tastes so much better.
Here’s one of my most-used recipes.
Malted Mix Bread (for a bread machine)
1/2 tsp yeast
150g strong white flour
250g malted grain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
Put the yeast into the bread machine, followed by the flours. Then add all the other ingredients and hit start. This makes a medium loaf using the wholewheat setting. Foolproof.
