And Lesley has a great web site which I have mentioned before in this blog. http://www.thriftylesley.com/ Ditto as far as brilliant frugal ideas is concerned.
I whole-heartedly recommend both places to you.
I made this. It is a proper bread, not a cakey or puddingy version, substantial and wholesome. It is truly delicious and, when it dries a bit, as bread is wont to do, it will toast like a dream. The list of ingredients looks long but it isn't really, it is all stuff you will have in, if you bake. If you don't - go on, try it! It can be addictive.
Here is the recipe. I've given half amounts that work perfectly with a 1 lb loaf tin. Choose your ingredients wisely and it is a frugal treat.
200g strong white flour
1 tsp sugar
1.5 tbsp oil (veg or sunflower - or you can use 37g butter)
half teaspoon salt
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1 medium egg
50 ml milk
50 ml water
half tsp dried yeast (the kind for for bread makers)
70g mixed dried fruit. I used some cranberries that were drying up and some value mixed fruit. Any dried fruit would do and you can also vary the spices you use. I am wondering about garam masala . . .
