Baking from scratch is usually cheaper (and healthier) than buying baked goods, but here are a few tips to reduce the cost of baking from scratch and keep the costs down even further:
Thrifty Baking Tips
**Substitute one Tbsp soy powder and one Tbsp water for one egg (this also reduces the fat in the recipe!)
**Use powdered milk mixed with the appropriate amount of water in place of fresh milk
**Most cookie recipes will taste just as good if you reduce the sugar by up to ½ (again – this healthier too!)
**Instead of buying a whole bag of self-rising flour for a special recipe, you can make your own by adding 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt to each cup of regular flour.
