I don’t know about you but the cost of bread seems to be constantly on an upward spiral. The cost of the average crusty white loaf in a UK supermarket is £1-1.20, in a local shop, £1.40, and in a local bakery it can be as much as £1.60!
I have calculated the cost of making your own bread at home, and the average cost, (including ingredients and gas/electricity) comes to a whopping 55p!
So it as AT LEAST half the coat of the cheapest supermarket loaf. The profit margins seem to be pretty high for bread as they would get much better prices for their flour because of the power of bulk buying.
Just one more reason to make your own.
