Food Budgeting Tip #1 Bread

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
280ml water

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.
