I often wonder this even though I bake for my own enjoyment and that wonderful smell that fills the house! I still want to know so here goes...
This tub of pancakes lasted us a whole week, were super quick to make and really tasty with sweet or savoury toppings. Since they were such a success and I'll be making them again this weekend lets do some sums so I know what I'm saving... Or not saving...
2kg Soda bread flour - £1.20 divided by 5 (used way less than 500g but I don't measure when I bake so its an estimate...) is 24p
6 free range eggs - £1.40 used 3 so thats 70p (we actually got given a dozen farm eggs last week but that was a one off so I'm leaving the egg cost in)
2ltr milk - £1 only used about 1 pint so thats 25p
and thats it for ingredients, we cook on electric so I'd have no idea about that cost, 20p???
Total £1.39 for 13 pancakes and the ones we buy from the bakery if I don't bake at home cost £1 for 4 so thats 25p each compared to 10p each! Less than half price! Brilliant! Have you ever done the sums on your baking or do you just do it for fun?
