Baking treats for your family is a great way to enjoy something special, at a fraction of the cost. I love to share great treats, bakes and more with my family. Here you will find a collection of my favourite muffins, cookies, cakes and more. If you love baking then I’ve got a frugal recipe for you!
I love to bake for my family but sometimes I am short on time, or motivation. Being able to whip up something that takes just a couple of minutes, and tastes lovely, is always good. From time to time we like to enjoy these cheese scones and I’m sharing my cheese scones recipe with you today.
This is the perfect family bake. It is quick, simple and frugal. Ideal for little ones to join too as long as they don’t overwork the dough! Scroll near the end of this recipe for a printable cheese scones recipe card!
Who doesn’t love a nice chocolate muffin?! These triple chocolate muffins are very popular in our home. They are ideal for freezing which makes them even better! These triple chocolate muffins take just minutes to prepare and get cooking in the oven. Best of all they taste delicious – which is the main thing isn’t it!
Recently I decided to make a cheese and onion quiche to use up some double cream and eggs that I had about to go past their best. I love frugal recipes that use up leftover items in the fridge. This recipe is really simple and whether you’re catering for a party or just want something different for dinner this is going to be a real crowd pleaser! You can make your own pastry or use shop-bought if you’re looking to save time/effort.
Bread is life. In our house at least. Any meal where I serve bread alongside it is always going to go down well with my husband. That effect is ramped up more when it is tear and share bread. Who doesn’t enjoy food that you can tear apart with your hands?! I’ve had a *Panasonic SD2501 breadmaker for a few years now. It is super versatile and makes much more than just bread. Cakes and jam for example. I love that I can be lazy and use it to mix up a dough while I take care of housework or online work. This tear & share bread is one such item that I make regularly. It keeps for a few days after it has been baked, at least, and freezes really well also. Scroll down near the end to see a printable recipe card for my tear and share bread.
This is a super simple flapjack recipe to make individual flapjacks. With the use of my food processor, it is ready to go in the oven in a matter of minutes. I love simple recipes. I always seem to make a huge amount of mess when baking so this leaves me more time to clean up! Also, by using gluten-free oats this can be suitable for gluten-free recipe lovers too.
